Property Description

Crazy beautiful! If gorgeous windows, art glass, and classic architectural details are your thing - plus big room sizes - then THIS is your house. Four levels of finished space means room for everyone! The light, the space, and the character will astound you. The details: 3 large bedrooms + an enormous tandem on the second floor, with 2 full baths (primary ensuite!), all recently remodeled. There is a 3rd floor office/ bedroom and storage. The first floor will soothe your soul, with a large living room with arched windows, art glass, and a faux fireplace. The side entryway/ foyer and staircase are pure classic with a 1/2 bath tucked away (but not small!) Peaked arches between rooms show all the style of the 1920s. Love to entertain? The dining room is ready for your big dinner parties and a proper bar area. There is a sun room/office at the back, and a large, well-appointed kitchen with great cabinet space and dedicated pantry storage + a window ledge for your herbs above the sink. A proper mudroom with built-ins serves as your access to the tidy, landscaped backyard with paver patio. Lastly, the basement awaits. An extra-wide staircase takes you to AMAZING renovated space, with wood-look ceramic tile floors, a family room area, recreation space, wet bar, laundry room, 2 storage rooms, and a 3rd full bath. All this, fully accessible from a covered side-entrance to the driveway. Boiler heat and central air = the best of both worlds. Newer windows throughout and a brick 2-car garage. Both a beauty and a slam dunk.
