Property Description

Picture yourself living in this perfectly located, impeccably & completely renovated home. With 2700 sq. of lovingly reimagined spaces and details, and one of the larger backyards in the area (with alley access) this home is truly one of a kind. The homeowners goal in the renovation was to keep many of the interior historical features while adding modern amenities. Enter the vestibule with original marble mosaic tile floor & wainscotting, original double door entry and restored transoms with leaded glass. FIRST FLOOR: featuring new random width Alabama Heart Pine flooring, recessed lighting & antique brass wall switch plates, and vintage push button switches. The large living room is flooded with natural light, a large picture window, a salvaged faux fireplace, high ceilings, ample room for multiple uses, access to the new nicely appointed powder room and the side breezeway. Proceeding to the rear through a custom-built arched passageway is a bright expansive dining room with two large, deep-set windows and custom storage cabinets, William Morris wallpaper & antique egg and dart tin crown molding. Ideal for large dinner parties and holidays, easily fits a table for 10-12 people. In the rear is the bright, expansive eat-in kitchen, with solid wood soft close cabinets, custom 2 thick cherry butcher block counter, 3-year-old quality stainless steel appliances, Quartz countertops and window sills. The kitchen is ideally situated to blend indoor and outdoor living with its large rear yard. REAR YARD: This 32 long oasis is paved in Pennsylvania bluestone with native landscaping, a fountain and a reclaimed back gate from St. Ritas Church leading to the alleyway (great bike and stroller access!). Proceeding upstairs, a 2-story staircase with a continuous banister that was lovingly restored and refinished by specialty restorationists (total price over $15,000). SECOND FLOOR: 3 Bedrooms, a dedicated laundry room & full bath. The front Bedroom is currently used as the primary bedroom and has a walk-in closet with a rustic barn door. The laundry room not only accommodates the LG HE washer & dryer but also an entire closet system! The bath is classically appointed with subway tiles, Kohler bath fittings, wall mounted toilet, vintage built-in medicine cabinet and a custom bath vanity with vessal sink. The Rear two Bedrooms is where the fun is at! Two nicely sized rooms are connected by an opening in the wall accessed by a custom climbing wall with a slide into the other room! Dont miss the secret passageway between the closets. THIRD FLOOR: currently configured as a home office, guest room (with Murphy bed), media room with surround sound speakers, and kitchenette with sink, fridge, and microwave. This entire floor can easily be used as the Primary suite with its private vintage door. Imagine your bright bedroom oasis in the rear with custom bookshelves, a dedicated room for a customized walk-in closet, a beautifully appointed bath with tin tile wainscotting, and a huge suite for your use as a home office during the day and hangout spot at night.
