Stepping back in time, this endearing residence exudes charm, warmth and classic style at every turn. Nestled on an enviable corner lot, character abounds as a white picket fence, cascades of lush landscaping and storybook-like façade introduce this wonderful Woodlands Heights home. The footprint of the home was expanded and remodeled in the 1990’s with superlative attention to detail ensuring the authenticity of the 1920s was preserved.
A blend of inspiration and beautiful architecture are splendidly woven together with hardwood floors, double-hung windows and an abundance of period moldings adorning most of the rooms. Enter through custom door into the serene space of the entry and living room centered on a fireplace with marble surround. Arched doorway leads to the dining room where a lighted coffered ceiling imparts a soft ambiance while a built-in buffet extends ease of entertaining. The home employs an open living concept with the kitchen and den being a central gathering space for family and friends. Banks of windows and doors allow natural light to sweep the gracious areas with a wide wrap-around porch interlacing the outdoors with the indoors. The whisking together of the old and new is embraced in the kitchen with a delightful window seat and Five Star gas range, Bosch dishwasher, tile countertops and backsplash and storage-friendly island with pull-up seating.
A hidden nook accommodates the downstairs study with a full bath close by. Upstairs, blankets of uninterrupted light engulf the game room which could very easily be converted into two bedrooms. The master bedroom has undeniable quality with crown molding, wrap around windows, pediment framed doors, full bath plus half bath and access to outside staircase to lower level. There is a double width driveway and oversized two car garage.
Subtleties of timeless architecture and postcard views add another chapter to the narrative of this special property.
