Gorgeous, grand Victorian with impressive detailing and soaring volumes. Handsome double parlor, formal dining room, family room adjacent to the kitchen and bright, attractive kitchen at the rear of the house. Three bedrooms upstairs on one level plus a large deck off the master suite. Recently remodeled family room and guest suite in a legal second unit downstairs at the garden level. Walk-out yard. This bright, lovely home has southern outlooks and is conveniently located near Lafayette Park, the Fillmore shops and restaurants and direct transportation downtown.
Main Level: The home has a sense of drama as soon as you walk into the impressive entrance. There is a full double parlor with a bay window, unusually high ceilings and an attractive fireplace. Folding doors allow this room to be closed off from the entry.
The formal dining room is regal, with wainscoting and a fireplace with marble surround. A built-in hutch with glass doors and glass-paned pocket doors separating the dining room and double parlor add to the handsome feeling of the room.
The dining room opens to a bright, cheerful family room with an unusual angled bay window and a fireplace with an elaborate oak surround. The kitchen is well laid-out with double ovens and a warming oven, two sinks, a gas range, corian and butcher block counter-tops and plenty of storage. A center island allows for bars tools for casual eating, and there is built-in banquette seating for an eating table in double bay windows.
A pleasantly separated powder room, done in marble and granite, in the back stairs area completes this level. There are light oak hardwood floors throughout the bulk of this level of the home, which contribute to the light and airy feeling.
Upper Level: The large rear master suite with double closets and an attached bathroom opens onto a very large deck. The master bedroom has sweeping Southern outlooks. The center bedroom, also with Southern outlooks, has a large dressing room/closet and opens onto the tiled Jack-and Jill bathroom, with double sinks. The third bedroom at the front of the house is unusually large and gracious, with a bay window, fireplace and built-in bookshelves. A laundry center completes this level.
Lower Level: A large central sitting room is a welcoming focus to the floor, at the bottom of the stairs. This opens onto the garage. The sitting room leads to a large family room or bedroom with a kitchenette, with a gas cook-top and an under-counter refrigerator, and extensive cabinetry for storage and media. This room opens directly onto the South-facing yard, which is landscaped with decking and pretty brickwork. There is a dynamic, recently remodeled bathroom serving this level. The parking in the garage is for two cars in tandem, with plenty of room for storage and a built-in workbench plus an additional off-street parking spot in the driveway.
