    Description

    One seldom finds an Victorian home that is open, light-filled, and airy which seamlessly integrates the indoors with the gardens. This home built in 1896, has every modern comfort without compromising its old-world charm. The glorious front garden welcomes you to a lovely wraparound porch draped in wisteria, overlooking a trellis filled with climbing roses, and the community park across the street. The elegant entry foyer with high ceilings and distinctive corbels reveals the graciousness found throughout the home. The turret room on the first floor was originally considered the formal parlor. This charming space boasts an electric fireplace, and makes a wonderful reading retreat or home office. The open living room with the original crown molding is entered through a custom curved arch with columns. The dining room has raised panel wainscoting and French doors leading to a large maintenance free deck, overlooking the beautifully landscaped private back yard. The eat-in kitchen and family room space also has French doors to the rear deck allowing the perfect flow for summer parties. The timeless white kitchen cabinets with soapstone countertops and breakfast bar, blend in perfectly with the classic architecture of this home. The elegant stairway leads to the primary bedroom with en suite, two additional large bedrooms and hall bath with laundry area. The third floor was recently remodeled to include an additional bedroom, sumptuous bath, and a spacious bonus room. The whole home has been insulated, rewired, and central air and a high efficiency boiler have been installed. Lovingly maintained and restored, this very special home is in move in condition, ready to be treasured by its next owners.
