Words from long-term owners of this beautiful home. True pride of ownership is seen throughout. This update is put out to those of you that want a lived-in house that has been updated in unusual ways over the years. Much of the trim is oak. The existing steel doorframes have been wood grained. Four functional ceiling fans are in two main living areas to help keep cooling costs down. Every window is a Marvin. Every bedroom has a louvered bi-fold mahogany closet door. They are really hard to locate anymore. The garage has an excellent sturdy workbench. On one wall there is room to hang a 4,6 and an 8-foot fiberglass ladder with no loss of workspace. Low maintenance stainless is everywhere: fireplace screen, polished Elkay bathroom sink, polished large laundry restaurant sink, polished round railings, stove backsplash and an exterior railing constructed of 2000 psi fittings because aesthetics were important to the homeowners. The cement crawlspace has racking. Nobody else is offering a house with these touches. It cost time and money to thoughtfully incorporate these treasures into your next house. The homeowners are packing and getting the house ready for your move in. If this is in your price range, you need to make time to see this house. Imaginative use of stainless, granite, marble, glass block and wood details abound in this mid century modern split level home overlooking Sereda Park. Greeted by a bluestone front walkway and heavy-duty stainless railing, you will enter into an open-concept Living Room/Dining Room/Kitchen with vaulted ceiling and hardwood floors that also opens to a generous Family Room. Living Room filled with light via huge picture window facing south and overlooking the park. Beautiful open space with fabulous areas for displaying art. Beautiful wooden cabinets, granite countertops, marble backsplash in the Kitchen which also has pantry closet and upper storage cabinets. Family Room with granite floor runs front to back of the house and opens to the Kitchen. It also features large coat/storage closets and unique glass block detail above the closet. Upper level with a unique mid-century wood/granite installation has 3 Bedrooms, a large linen closet and a full bath. Each Bedroom features extended double closet. Wake up to views of the park from the Primary Bedroom. Huge Recreation Room in the lower level, steps from the Kitchen, has recessed lighting in a tongue-in-groove ceiling, manufactured hardwood floor, a corner fireplace (fireplace as is), and wonderful space for living/entertaining/exercise. Laundry Room and Full Bathroom with shower complete the lower level. Access from the Recreation Room into the large cement crawl space. This home has amazing storage - all those upper storage cabinets, deep drawers beside shower in upper level bathroom, extended double closets in all the bedrooms, hallway linen closet, pantry, family room storage closet and double coat closet plus the crawl space! Attached 2 3/4 car garage has huge storage/work bench area. This home truly lives large and is a joy with the open living space, wonderful park views and opportunity to use the park for your own recreation. Owners have spent countless time updating in keeping with the style of the home and creating so many unique details! They have been wonderfully happy here and you will be, too!
