With pre-war details and beautifully impeccable finishes throughout, this airy architect-renovated single family is a true gem and special in every way!
Located on a quiet, tree-lined street, the South-facing home charms upon entry. The stylized foyer has custom built-ins for convenient storage and opens to a sunswept and expansive living/dining area accented by an exposed brick wall, high ceilings and stained glass details.
The stunning kitchen – renovated in 2019 – is gorgeously appointed with custom cabinets, marble countertops, pot filler and upgraded appliances (including built-in Fisher Paykel refrigerator, Bosch range plus hood with exterior vent, microwave drawer, and dishwasher) as well as a water filtration system. A modern powder room is also found on this level.
A true highlight of the home is the lush backyard oasis that is accessed from the kitchen, seamlessly blending the best of indoor and outdoor living and just in time for long Summer days. It features a striking teak deck with standing seam metal roof, step lighting and hard-wired speakers; cedar privacy fencing; pavers; lawn area; planting beds rich with mature flowering plants and trees; and a newly painted rear exterior facade.
The bright upper level has 3 bedrooms, including a primary bedroom that spans the width of the house and features a separate sitting/office area as well as a large closets, and has views of a canopy of treetops. There are two additional bedrooms on this floor -- both light and quiet -- as well as a renovated full windowed bath.
The lower level is finished and further expands the living space. With good ceiling height, large window and private street access, it is currently used as a guest suite, play and study area, and den. This level also has a large laundry area, contemporary half bath, and the home's mechanicals.
Totally turnkey, other thoughtful and elevated renovation details include: a new roof with hatch (2020); Mitsubishi Split Ductless Heat and Cooling system throughout; AO Smith 40 gallon water heater (2018), recent Burnham Steam Boiler; insulated attic with recycled denim; Elfa closets with cedar lining; and more.
Centrally located on a lovely tree-lined street, only a couple blocks from the nearest subway, and minutes to vibrant greenspaces, waterfront parks and promenade, a wealth of local shops, restaurants, and commuter ferry.
