Graceful layout, generous proportions, original details, ideal location!
An open porch beckons you to enter the living room through the orginal foyer and oversized, bevelled glass door. The entire width of the house (like the front rooms on 2nd & 3d floors), the living room is framed by leaded glass windows, creating a luxurious sense of space. The original,working gas fireplace in the living room is surrounded by hand-painted Delft tiles. In both living and dining rooms, tiger oak graces the floors and woodwork. Original doors and moldings add to the appeal and integrity of the house.
The formal dining room has tiger oak paneling, a plate shelf, a gas fireplace, wood-beamed ceiling, pocket doors, and an original chandelier. It's easy to imagine the joyful parties that will fill this house! Half bath on the first floor adds to the home's convenience and livability.
The country kitchen, with Dutch door and knotty pine cabinets, opens to the unusally spacious L-shaped back yard with its gas line for the grill, automatic, in-ground sprinkler system, 2-car garage with remote-controlled door opener, and dedicated dining area.
Beautiful leaded glass windows light the built-in window seat on the landing to the second floor. The full-width master bedroom suite has a sleeping alcove, a sitting area with another original fireplace, and an ensuite marble sink and closet. Two other bedrooms, a built-in linen closet, and a full bathroom fill out this floor.
The expansive front room on the third floor currently houses a full-sized tiger oak pool table, with lots of room left over! An adjacent room can serve many purposes: bedroom, guest room, home office, or more. A spacious and restful bathroom, with its footed bathtub and enormous closet, provide a third floor haven. The ceilings follow the angles of the roof in this classic third floor.
The oversized back yard is as inviting as the house; both offer room to live, play, entertain, and seek refuge---suburban convenience in an idyllic urban setting.
