Property Description

Gorgeous Brick 5 bedroom home in fantastic central location with stunning orginal architectural features! Enter the generous sun porch with newly refinished hardwood floors. Once inside, you will enjoy the spacious foyer which showcases the center staircase with stunning art glass on the landing. Original quarter sawn oak floors throughout the home add to its character. Move to the living room with fireplace and built-in bookcases. Easy access to the formal dining room with more art glass and beautiful light fixture. The first floor family room addition boasts 3 walls of windows which overlook the backyard and spread light throughout the first floor living space. Enter the large eat-in kitchen through the butler's pantry with maple countertop. Kitchen is a chef's dream with plenty of cabinet and granite counter space/island, refreshed in 2018, with oven (2018) and cooktop (2021), and built-in with art glass. The table matches the island and stays with the home. This space is perfect for entertaining as it opens to the three-tiered deck for dining al fresco, relaxing, and then a soak in the hot-tub. First floor bedroom is currently used as an office and has a lovely seating area in the bay window. Head upstairs to four generous bedrooms, each with large closets, including a bright primary suite with windows on 3 sides (alligned with the family room below) and 3 closets. Laundry chute-no more carrying laundry all the way downstairs. There is a small private deck off one of the bedrooms for sunset views. The heated third floor is light and bright with high ceilings and hardwood floors. Currently used for playspace and extra storage, it has infinite possibilities for another suite or recreation room. Basement is high (~7.5 ft) and dry and unfinished with a powder room. Great potential here as well for wine cellar, workroom, storage or whatever kind of finished space you may need. New tear-off roof (2019), newer windows througout (2010), tuckpointing (2017). The oversized back yard has new fence (2020), potting shed, and buried electric so no unsightly overhead wires. Brick one car garage plus 2 other parking spots. All of this in a central location close to everything: OPRF, green line, parks, shopping, restaraunts.
