Rare 4 room deep Hill home is GREAT for gathering, w/a wow-y main level family room PLUS a lovely lower level rec room. Estimated over 2600sf on 3 floors per pro plans (almost 2300sf per tax records), this 4BR/3.5BA (3/2.5 up + lower level ensuite guest room) boasts rear wall of glass onto deep backyard and easy alley access. Built-in window seat beckons to curl up w/a book in the formal front living room, warmed by the wood burning fireplace, w/tall ceilings, crown molding, wood floors, and original staircase w/stained glass skylight above. Step through to the heart of the home, a kitchen w/copious cabinets, stainless steel appliances including wall oven and gas cooktop, granite countertops and a breakfast bar. Coat closet and powder room are conveniently tucked away. Dramatic open plan is perfect for parties, kitchen opens to a spacious dining room w/wood floor and exposed brick wall, featuring a fun skylit bonus area at the side for display storage or a mini painting studio. Bright family room has a sliding glass door wall to the deep evergreen (astroturf) backyard w/patio, a picnic table, and space for grilling. Indoor/outdoor parties are a breeze in this at-grade space, while the alley gate is easy for bikes, strollers, and grocery unloading. The entire main level and stair hall are freshly painted and sparkle.
Upstairs, the spacious primary suite at rear feels like a tree house, w/blond wood floor and ceiling in the skylit bedroom and sliding glass door wall to a balcony (AS IS) overlooking tree-sheltered backyard. Two walls of floor-to-ceiling custom closets (including stacked front-loading washer/dryer) provide excellent storage and a soothing skylit marble ensuite bath boasts frameless glass shower, double sink, large storage closet and toasty heated floor.
The large 2nd bedroom at front has gorgeous heart pine wood floors, a wall of floor-to-ceiling closets, and a bright bay nook for desk or chair. Sleek hall bath features vanity, tub and pennyroll floor tile. Middle 3rd bedroom has clever new built-ins: large built-in desk and wall of bookshelves on one side, and a tall closet (doors have been installed since photo was taken) on the other, w/gorgeous heart pine floor.
Lower level w/tall ceilings features a large rec room at front w/built-in benches and table in bay nook, a large stainless steel fridge and big wet bar area, plus plenty of space to play airhockey, do yoga, and to relax for movie nights. A beautiful ensuite guest room is at rear, w/a frameless glass shower in the sleek tiled bathroom. Rest easy knowing the lower level, HVAC, sump pump, and eco-friendly on-demand water heater are all new as of 2019, along w/electrical box upgrade.
