Description

This glorious vintage home is on the market for the first time in 27 years. This home is situated on a large lot on the cusp of a lovely curved street of well manicured homes. The location of the house on the large lot affords it a grand front yard with lovely greenery, a wonderful front porch spanning the entire width of the house with room for a porch swing and additional seating, clearance from other buildings which provides the house lots of fresh air and natural light, and an oversized private backyard professionally designed with pavers for walking and seating areas and plantings. This well cared for home has retained it's vintage features and charm but has been brought totally up-to-date by the current owners who have made many improvements over the years. Entering the home through the vintage screen door there is a beautiful tile motif inlayed in the gleaming hardwood floor of the oversized entry foyer which lends itself to multi uses. The living room has a wood burning fireplace and leads directly into the formal dining room with lovely vintage cabinetry. The dining room opens onto both the large screened-in porch and renovated kitchen which is complete with an eating/work island with custom counter top, sink and storage that can comfortably seat four. More work space and storage along with an additional double sink is located adjacent to the island - perfect for anyone who enjoys cooking. And, the kitchen has been expanded to include a breakfast room with table space and skylights overlooking the beautiful, serene backyard. The kitchen opens onto the screened-in porch as well and from the porch you can enter the back yard. If you like to entertain - and want to utilize the indoors and outdoors, the configuration of the entire first floor is perfect. There is a renovated powder room on this level as well. The elegant staircase leads to the second floor which has a large primary bedroom with a totally renovated en-suite bath and an adjoining second bedroom with a window seat that could absolutely be a separate room or a perfect nursery, office or sitting room. The third bedroom is large enough to accommodate a king size bed. There is an additional renovated full bath on this floor as well. The third floor contains two well-sized, very charming bedrooms under the eaves. There are hardwood floors throughout, the windows have been replaced with energy efficient double pane windows while retaining the original wood trim, ductless air conditioning cools the home, electrical service is upgraded. The unfinished basement contains laundry and plenty of storage space. A designated parking space is located in a cooperative lot just behind the house. The asking price for parking is $23,000. This could be the home of your dreams.
