Classic Old Village Home
This classic, Old Village home exudes charm and elegance. Set on a quiet street and beautifully landscaped, the property has fantastic curb appeal and commands admiration. Ivy adorns the red brick exterior and a beautiful stone staircase leads to the elegant, covered, sentinel-columned entry.
Stepping into the home, one’s attention is drawn to the high ceilings, gorgeous moldings, deep baseboards, and hardwood floors, themes that are continued throughout. A wide, architecturally interesting staircase leads from the foyer to the second floor. The living room has two seating areas with lovely views of the magnificent gardens with mature trees and hedges, a lovely fireplace with plaster and marble surround, and built-in shelving. The formal dining room is located off the living room and is perfect for entertaining. It has double door access to a covered, screened-in porch that opens to the garden. The custom kitchen has beautiful cabinetry and features under-cabinet lighting, glass display cabinetry, plate racks and an exposed brick feature. A cozy, nicely detailed breakfast bar is perfect for a busy family.
The second floor has a wonderful, bright master bedroom with high ceilings and French doors to a romantic, private, covered balcony overlooking the gardens and gazebo. An elegant bathroom is ensuite. Three additional bright, spacious bedrooms are located on this level, one of which currently serves as an office and which could make a perfect twin room or nursery. A beautiful bathroom with a black and white theme rounds out the second floor.
A third-floor recreation room is located in the fantastic 12-foot ceilinged converted attic space. It has an exposed brick feature chimney and lovely pine floors. A second recreation room, with a fireplace and direct access to the back garden, is located in the bright, functional walkout basement. This level also has a powder room, spacious laundry, workshop, and storage area.
The back garden is west-facing, benefits from southern exposure and is beautifully landscaped to create a private oasis. It has mature foliage, flagstone walks and stone retaining walls. A covered barbecue area allows for year around cooking and has an adjacent dining area. The walkout lower level is designed to take advantage of the gardens and the wonderful heated gazebo.
