Property Description

Imagine yourself in a large, brick, custom Georgian home built in 1927 by and for the builder himself. Well, imagine no longer! Restored original vintage charm and installation of all the modern amenities make this house a dream come true. As you walk up to the home you are greeted by a front yard and a covered front porch. Open the front door to a natural foyer and a view through the home and into the backyard offering that open floor plan feel. Natural light pours in from every window in the home with sun from morning until night due to the Eastern and Western exposure. Through the foyer, walk into the living room or into the full Dining room that leads into a library/study overlooking the backyard. Come around the corner and you are at the back of the house with a heated floor kitchen that spans the entire distance between the dining room and library/study. This naturally flowing kitchen has it all: hand selected Brazilian granite, double ovens, a 5 burner gas range, microwave drawer, garbage disposal, garbage compactor, deep sink, double drawer dishwasher, and tons of custom cabinets. Some would call it the ideal "chefs kitchen". Let's make our way to the wide staircase that leads to the 2nd floor. Once upstairs, you will find the primary bedroom facing the front of the home with a custom, en suite bathroom. The other 3 bedrooms are on the other side of the home offering great privacy. There is an extra surprise on this floor! There is a hidden room that has been insulated and carpeted and can only be accessed from the hallway through a hatched door and a custom built-in ladder. This room is a kid's dream! It's great for hiding out, sleepovers, an artist's loft, or anything you can imagine! If this wasn't already enough space, let's take a look at the basement. The basement is half finished. It is currently being used for storage on one side and a rec room on the other. The driveway spans the whole lot (150 feet) with plenty of space for recreation, guest cars, etc. This backyard has it all and is fully fenced! Vegetable and herb gardens, low maintenance perennial and native landscaping, a playset, a water feature, plenty of room for a large patio table and still green space to enjoy. The garage is not your normal garage. To start, it fits 2 cars and then has an extra 5 feet of storage. Make your way to the 2nd floor of the garage to find a custom sound-proofed music studio that could be a second office or home theater room. Imagination was put into full use when designing this home and it still is wowing people to this day! Pride of ownership shows with all of the major updates recently completed: 2021 hot water heater, 2020 house roof, 2019 Pella wood windows, 2017 music studio, 2016 furnace and AC, and 2016 Garage roof.
