Embracing period allure, this thirties-era Crocker Highlands home reveals fresh revitalization, including a kitchen transformation. Three floors of living space grant privacy to the upper level, featuring a balcony-enhanced master suite plus two bedrooms and two updated bathrooms. The entry level presents formal living and dining rooms plus breakfast room, classic-contemporary kitchen and powder room. A family-media room, advantageously set apart on the lower level, embodies a sought-after relaxed space that extends via French doors to a deck with leafy neighborhood outlook.
Original architectural attributes radiate fresh luster throughout the interior. Hardwood floors, just refinished, are complemented by new hardwood flooring in the kitchen and breakfast room. Within the living room, ceiling beams edged with corbels correlate to the focal-point fireplace mantle. Three sides of the large-scaled room feature casement windows that filter light and swing open to treed surroundings.
Contemporary components with classic sensibility bring the kitchen up to the moment while harmonizing with the home’s original aesthetic. Carrera marble counters dovetail with pearly subway-tile backsplashes. All-new appliances in stainless add capability with finesse. A kitchen-adjacent opening connects to a narrow back terrace.
A level above, three bedrooms include a walk-in-closet-endowed master suite, its front-facing petite balcony offering a tranquil tree-top respite. Both vintage-effect full baths reflect renovations, the master incorporating natural stone in terra-cotta hues, the second comprising natural stone in soft grays with vibrant veining.
A casual contrast to the more formal living room, the lower-level family-media doubles its footprint as it merges with the deck. Clad with Douglas Fir flooring, the broad room incorporates a recessed-lighting scheme and wiring for sound. A door to the exterior, steps from the driveway, grants direct entry to the lower level.
