This exceptional five-bedroom Northside home exuding English charm, cachet and a commanding street presence, is poised on over .5 acre of groomed, level prime property just blocks to town and trains.
Grand, gracious rooms with distinctive architectural flair, 21st-century additions and renovations, an integrated home media system and top-notch amenities define this home, perfectly designed with today's discerning homebuyer in mind.
A center hall floor plan with formal rooms that flank the hallway set the tone. Distinctive crown moldings hover over the inviting living room with gas-log stone fireplace and the formal dining room with bay-windowed property views. French doors off the living room introduce a sun-filled den/home office with built-ins and media center, enhanced with property views on three sides. A dramatic oak-clad family room set beneath a coffered ceiling of exposed beams features a wood burning fieldstone fireplace with gas starter, two built-in window seats and a wet bar with beverage fridge. Two sets of French doors open to an expansive entertaining terrace, complete with built-in grill, fireplace, stove and speakers that create the ultimate in upscale outdoor dining experiences, with elevated vistas of the lush yard set against a backdrop of pristine garden beds and privacy plantings. A hidden play area is an added delight.
A handsome Cabri designer custom kitchen, new in 2013, is replete with rich custom cabinetry, granite countertops, professional-grade appliances, a coffee bar and a seated center island. Enhancing the kitchen is an open concept breakfast room with bay window and second den with an expanse of cabinetry added in 2013 as well, with convenient access from the parking court.
Two staircases lead to generously-sized bedrooms on the second floor. The romantic master bedroom suite enjoys the warmth of a gas-log fireplace with rustic brick surround, high ceilings above and doors that open to a charming Juliet balcony. There is a huge custom-fitted walk-in closet and adjoining master bath with double vanity, claw-foot soaking tub and oversized frameless shower. Two of the bedrooms are joined by a Jack and Jill bath with shower (one with a second Juliet balcony), while another is served by a newly renovated hall bath and tub shower. A private fifth bedroom and full bath are set on the third floor, offering added versatility--ideal as guest quarters or an in-law suite--along with access to fully floored attic storage.
The walk-out lower level recreation room with built-ins is sun-filled with an expanse of windows and a separate entrance to the yard, complemented by a full bath and shower nearby. A generous mud room offers an abundance of custom built-in cubbies and direct access to the two-car heated garage. A laundry room and storage rooms complete this level.
Location. Location. Location. Step into this prime Northside gem and dare to dream.
