Property Description

The finest home offering in the Cathedral Area and part of CAPA (Cathedral Area Preservation Association). This 1913 -three story home is anything but - cookie cutter! An expansive and elevated front porch announces a grand entry to the foyer of this 2100 square foot historical home. The showcase of pristine original millwork is guaranteed to thrill and includes: refinished hardwood flooring, thick crown moulding, baseboards, casings, coffered ceilings - not to mention solid oak doors throughout. The main living room is testament to these finishes and offers a showstopper fireplace mantel that is over 100 years old, itself! The kitchen has many updates and features, such as: a butlers pantry, table space, farmers sink, stained glass accents and the homes secondary staircase to upper levels. There is an inviting dining room just waiting for your Thanksgiving & holiday gatherings, for years to come - or...the kids play area/office area for you more modern minded people. Either way, its a room you want to spend time in! Usually, foyers are not highlighted in descriptions, but this foyer is stunning and is home to a most stunning primary staircase leading you to 4 bedrooms (one of which has private elevated porch access overlooking back yard) and a remodeled full bath on the 2nd floor. Open hallway & all bedrooms have hardwood flooring and here is where you will discover, yet another one of this homes surprises...a 3rd floor entry to a multi-purpose room (workout area, theatre/game room, quiet study getaway, or hiding holiday gifts from the big jolly guy in the red suit-HO HO HO). Behind a built-in is a hinged swinging bookcase to a hidden space, currently used for additional storage, but has endless possibilities! Other features that round out this one of a kind home include an enclosed mud room between the back yard & kitchen, a fenced yard & large deck with firepit provision and a large heated 1.5 car garage, with alley access. Finally, the basement is partially finished, with another full bath, loads of room for laundry & additional finished space, for find a home with 2 or 3 of these appointments is special and to find a home like this one, with so many is extraordinary, especially given it's superb condition!
