    Description

    This absolutely stunning home belongs in House Beautiful Magazine with all of the exquisite finishes the homeowners have added, while maintaining the old-world charm of a house built in 1910! You're greeted with a large covered front porch with plenty of room for seating upon entering into a grand foyer! This wonderful architectural home on a corner lot maintains period natural woodwork, crown molding & a beamed ceiling. The 15'X12' sunny formal dining room has a half-timber wall design, a pocket door and 10 'ceilings. The 17'X25' light-filled great room makes use of the triple-gable facade bay windows with 2 cozy built-in benches with seating space and storage. The gas fireplace has been fully renovated with stacked travertine tile, a large ledge stone with the original wood mantel still in place. This vent free gas fireplace insert provides 40K BTU of heat! Bookcases were also added to this area. The $60K kitchen renovation will amaze you as it's adorned with style for the best chef! It features quartz counter tops with timeless subway tile back splash, tall cabinetry with glass panels, high end LG appliances including a double oven, a built-in wine fridge with a layout that is extremely well designed. The dropped ceiling was raised to take advantage of more space and light. (8'X16' SISTER JOISTS WERE ADDED HERE.) Upstairs you'll find 3 bedrooms & two full baths. NOTE THE BEDROOM SIZES! Full bath #1 has been beautifully remodeled with a contemporary design and has luxurious heated tile floors! The master suite has a custom master bath that's awe inspiring that features a free-standing tub, dual vanity vessel sinks and a tiled shower with marble flooring. These tile floors here are heated as well! As you head to the lower level, don't miss the unique half bath, the new wainscoting and the trendy barn door. A new cement floor has been added to the basement which now functions as large family room with a delightful play area for this family's children. This is a great flex space for the new buyers! The lovely back yard has been professionally landscaped, has a large patio area, numerous trees, a raised bed garden & new stone and brick walkway to the garage. The garage 2-car has an attic space for storage PLUS a large cement pad for the parking of 2-3 additional cars! This is a unique feature in this neighborhood! This home also features a third-floor walk-up attic with potential to finish into a bonus room! Please note: All electrical upgraded including the garage 2012 * All plumbing upgraded *2012 Plaster replaced with drywall *Upgraded all fixtures, lighting, ceiling fans & recessed lighting added in the great room*All interior rooms painted *Insulation added *Refinished all wood floors throughout the home except the kitchen which has a new sub wood floor *Furnace/AC new 2012 *New water heater 2012 *New exterior paint 2014 *New roof & gutters 2014 *New fence 2014 *New front landscaping & trees 2013.
