Property Description

Extraordinary turn-of-the Century classic brick 5 bedroom three-story. Lovely hardwood flooring throughout with great windows, moldings and high ceilings. Built in 1900, this classic beauty has been lovingly updated with newer roof, updated baths, new gas furnace and water heater, upgraded electric service and rebuilt front porch. The foyer entry from full front porch has lovely stained glass panels. The living room has hardwood flooring, moldings and glass-paneled pocket door. Adjoining the very cozy sitting room featuring brick fireplace, is the open-plan cherry kitchen with granite top, subway tile backsplash, and oversized island with stools. Nearby is generous space to easily accommodate oversized table and chairs. The laundry/utility room features tile flooring, original brick wall and Bilco doors access to basement. The two-piece powder room is but a few steps away. A split staircase leads to the second floor where there are four spacious bedrooms all with hardwood floors, large closets. There is also a delightful roof porch accessed from bedroom currently used as home office. The bath on this floor has been updated with new flooring, vanity and lighting. Hold your breath as you go up the steps to the former attic space...the new master bedroom is an architecturally honest remodel retaining the angled ceiling with "crazy" peaks while introducing updated bamboo flooring, new custom windows, oversized walk-in closet and voice activated "smart" electric system! This area is heated and cooled with a split unit. The new master bath has it all...over-the-top quality with tile, vanity and a state of the art shower featuring multi-shower heads. This space is one of a kind with special attention to detail sure to "let it soak" in when you are there. The sellers have also created a special outside area with paver patio, fire pit and lighting. The property has been totally fenced with an electronic gate that accesses the large paved driveway for secure parking. There is also a charming older building to store the outside tools, plus a large open yard area. This home is special indeed...old world charm with all of the modern amenities! Lovely indeed! Sellers are looking for a mid-July settlement.
