This impeccably updated home, is filled from top to bottom with original architectural details seamlessly blended with the latest in modern conveniences. The current owners partnered with Saxony Design Build to lovingly restore, expand and renovate using only the highest quality materials while keeping the architectural integrity of this 1909 Craftsman at the forefront.  


Highly coveted attributes of the Arts & Crafts movement abound including the original Oak front door, Oak hardwood floors, broad beamed ceilings, rich wood moldings, fireplace with oversized mantel flanked by bookcases, wainscoting, pocket and five panel doors, built-in cabinetry, picture rails and so much more. All the essential services were replaced in 2014  including copper plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and roof. Every room of the house has been upgraded with period appropriate lighting, finishes and flooring, door hardware, push button switches, and wall covering.  


A thoughtfully remodeled floor plan includes the formal entry, living and dining rooms and butler’s pantry leading to a stunning great room with 16’ ceilings that holds a state of the art kitchen, expansive family room and laundry room. A conveniently placed powder room is tucked in the hallway between living and great room. 


The spacious master suite is a breathtaking retreat with vaulted beamed ceiling, luxurious en-suite bath with dual vanities, shower and soaking tub enveloped in distinctive marble and stone, two generous custom closets and a wall of glass windows and French doors opening to a patio - a serene spot to start or end the day.  A guest room with en-suite bath and walk-in closet completes the first floor. 


The second level holds two charming bedrooms, bath with clawfoot tub and shower, and a fantastic 389sf bonus room! Currently used a playroom with built in desks, bookcases and media area. 


Professionally landscaped grounds include a pergola covered slate patio, with outdoor kitchen with top of the line BBQ, sink and refrigerator, deck off master and a six seat gas fire pit.  


The two car garage has been converted to two separate home office spaces with ductless heat/air and bathroom with shower and tankless heater. Alley accessed parking is available on a concrete paved carport with basketball hoop and  power to charge an electric car.


Truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a lovely example of Arts & Crafts workmanship  while enjoying all of today’s modern amenities.
