Perfection and faithfulness to the era best describe the ownership of this McKay built home. This surprisingly spacious home has been wonderfully maintained. Some of the many improvements made during an 18 year relationship with this home include: A beautiful vintage Wood Mode kitchen with granite tops, subway tile back splash, and stainless appliance package that includes a Viking commercial grade gas range, the main bath has been left in its original condition and the owner has added crown molding, period plumbing fixtures and hardware with lighting to maintain the integrity of the era, the three season porch was converted to year round enjoyment with the enclosing and insulating of the exterior walls, the addition of new Pella Low-E Argon gas filled windows including transom windows and a new Low-E Argon gas filled windowed door-the original terra cotta tile was left intact as well as the exposed brick wall from the main part of the home, and the beautiful triple french doors that open from dining room. The master bedroom located on the second floor is a peaceful retreat with its ship lap walls, new hardwood floors and beautiful master bath that includes heated tile floors, over-sized walk-in tiled rain shower, custom cherry wood vanity with soapstone top/sink, and built ins that replicate the original built ins elsewhere in the home. These are just a few of the thoughtful improvements that the current owner has made.
Some important details to know: Fireplace mantel was custom made, picture frame molding was added, shoe-base molding was installed, all plumbing lines have been improved to copper, all windows have been reworked and restored to functional, all downspouts have been tiled to daylight, tuck pointing has been done around the home to maintain the brick exterior, new retaining wall installed on north side of home, new patio installed with fresh landscaping all around home, front stoop has been replaced with period correct stoop, Wrought iron fence across the back of the property with a gate that leads into Bever Park. The basement is special as well with its 210 bottle terra cotta wine cellar, but you will need to set up an appointment to see that incredible space! There is a correct way to restore a landmark home and this owner has done it beautifully. What can't be newly created are historic places, what CAN be brought to life within their walls is limited only by the imagination, the current owner has loved living in this special home and is sure the next caretaker will too!
