Description

Bonjour et Bienvenue! Hello and Welcome to 805 N. Washington Street, a 3 bed-room, 2 bath French Normandy inspired country 'chateau' in North Wheaton! Originally designed by Architect Robert Holt Salisbury, the residence nestled among its lovely gardens on a generous corner lot just steps from the prestigious Wheaton College Campus, was completed on September 8, 1938. Brilliantly combining rustic and refined finishes, this French country style home brings classic European architecture into the present day, all under the canopy of its classic Mansard roof. The architect's distinctive French provincal exterior design style offers: solid earth tone rustic brick construction, copper downspouts and scuppers, wood multi-pane windows, curved arches and stone-work on tall sashed windows and doorways, slat board wood shutters, and decorative iron balustrades. With its mix of chic rustic charm and refined elegance, the interior fea-tures 9ft. ceilings on the main floor, solid wood doors with vintage hardware, beautiful millwork, original beveled wide planked wood flooring, transomed doorways, curved multi-paned french doors, plaster walls, and charming built-ins throughout. Main floor living spaces defined by natural finishes include: a welcoming foyer; formal living room with a gas fireplace framed by an elaborate imported mantle and fire brick from Strasbourg in the Alsace region of France; a formal dining room made for entertaining; a generous eat-in kitchen; an expansive family room with an abundance of natural light and second gas fireplace with marble surround; a private ensuite bedroom with full bath; a side entry mudroom; a screened porch with natural wood planked ceiling and tile floor offering lovely garden views; and an enclosed breezeway from the family room the the large 2 car garage with great storage spaces and a workshop. The resi-dence's second floor features a spacious primary bedroom with 2 closets and built- in cabinetry, a third bedroom with cozy built-ins; and a full Jack and Jill bath. The unfinished walk-out basement offers great storage, a wood burning fireplace, and a laundry room with convenient utility sink. An original brick wall accent serves as a back drop to the colorful perennial gardens that are peppered throughout this beautiful .34 acre lot. This home embraces a sense of historic old-world charm, and relaxed classic amenities, perfect for today's modern lifestyle. Having offered over 80 years of Joie de Vivre (Joy), we truly hope that this magical property is loved by its new owners for many more years to come! Improvements Made Include: Interior painting, renovated original windows/screens, as well as 2 new windows in family room, custom shades in main floor bedroom, roof on garage (2019), and in 2012, exterior drain tiles, sump pump with battery back-up, ejector pump, water heater, Lenox HVAC (furnace 2013, A/C 2020), 200 amp electrical service.
