MASTERPIECE! This is what 10 years of careful planning, attention to detail & fine, quality craftsmanship looks like in a character home. Elegant, practical & thoughtfully designed, this outstanding home will far exceed your expectations. Shaded under a canopy of beautiful, mature trees, this wonderful 2 storey has an extra large 75 x 150 lot for privacy, lots of storage, pretty views & an ideal workshop for indoor vehicle parking & projects. Original house exterior was stripped down to wood, insulated with 2" styrofoam, envelope completely sealed, new vinyl windows installed & sided. New front, side & rear decks. Step inside the roomy entry with space for a wardrobe closet & bench to sit down. Bright, functional & lovely Scandinavian design kitchen welcomes you to a comfortable workspace with pantry & horizontal upper cabinets. You will never tire of the view from the kitchen sink window. Practical storage for baking pans, serving ware & bulk grocery items. Open view from kitchen into dining & living area is ideal for entertaining. Soaring ceilings, a lovingly restored original crystal chandelier, perfect millwork & gleaming hardwood floors create an atmosphere of richness & finery. Your formal dining suite will fit beautifully in this space. Access to East facing covered deck with bamboo roller shades & ceiling fan for outdoor dining & natural extension of the living & dining space when you have guests. Grand living room has amazing fireplace as its focal point; wood surround is a gorgeous European antique piece with built in display & storage. Primary bedroom on main accommodates a king bed, bedside tables, a nook for a dressing table behind the door & more than ample closet space. The main bath is a dream; it is roomy enough to be very accessible, has a separate shower, double soaker tub, lots of built in storage for your towels, cosmetics & even a dressing area. Laundry is conveniently hidden behind the dressing area. Details like a foot faucet in the shower & duct with heat vent underneath the tub add a little more luxury. The hall & staircase have so much light, warmth & character; you are transported to another era up to the loft area. This bright, warm & cozy space would make a wonderful bedroom (air B & B?) bonus or family room, reading room or office. It has such good light & energy. Developed bsmt offers an additional bedroom & family room space. Mechanical & utility room host updated high efficiency furnace & hot water heater. Updated electrical, plumbing, heating, insulation & exterior means this age of home is as efficient & low maintenance as it can be. Detached, heated quonset style shop has plenty of room for your vehicle parking, home based business or hobby workshop.
