Beautifully redesigned to accommodate modern living while retaining historic details, the 3,919 square foot home features a new roof, copper turret, and copper gutters. Walking up the slate steps from the sidewalk to the recently refurbished wrap-around front porch you’re greeted by the original front door that was refinished when the present owner rehabbed the house. As you enter you will notice hardwood cherry floors throughout the entire house. Inside the entry, the hallway has the original carved newel post at the base of the original stairs.
To your left, as you enter is the spacious formal living room with beautiful, custom-built oak pocket doors, deep windowsills, and 9.5-foot ceilings. Continue to the formal dining room with built-in window seats a second entrance to the wrap-around porch. This room also has another set of custom-built pocket doors that lock if desired and allow for the formal rooms to be closed off. Straight back from the front entryway leads to the kitchen in the heart of the home. With ceiling-height cherry cabinets and a pull-out pantry, there is plenty of storage for any discerning chef. Granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a breakfast bar with custom bar stools round out this gourmet kitchen.
The large breakfast/morning/music room spans the width of the house and has two built-in window benches and a gas fireplace facing the dining room and kitchen spaces. A spiral staircase provides access to the unique loft space that overlooks the spectacular great room. The great room has 20-foot ceilings, more built-ins including two more window benches with storage underneath, and 12-foot-tall bookcases. A wet bar just outside of the powder room makes entertaining a breeze. Just off the great room is the first deck covered with a lovely arbor leading to a fully fenced backyard. Heading up the original front staircase is a spacious landing on the second floor. The huge primary suite has three large, south-facing windows to let in sunshine and an original French door to the small private Juliet balcony. Unwind in front of the gas fireplace with exposed brick surrounded by more built-in bookcases.
The owner’s suite closet has multiple custom features. The large ensuite bathroom has double sinks, a large jetted bathtub, and a separate slate shower with five luxurious shower-heads. There are two more bedrooms on this floor, a linen closet, and a hall bathroom with an additional linen closet. At the end of the second-floor hallway, a beautiful, curved barn door leads to the unique office or loft space that overlooks the great room. This space includes the fourth gas fireplace, skylight, and gorgeous built-in shelves that span the walls over to the catwalk extending over the great room.
