BRAND NEW METAL ROOF AND GUTTERS! Check that off the list!! "The brick street." That's the easy way to tell people where you live. It IS that actual piece of history for you to own. This magnificent home has the look, feel, charm & quality of a bygone era. They aren't building homes with a side carriage entrance anymore.It's a lovely detail that brings to mind the glamour & beauty of "Silk Stocking Row." Many people drive down this little street to catch a glimpse of an outstanding front entrance. This porch is the ultimate gathering, relaxing, swinging & socializing spot that one would expect from a property so grand.A substantial red door is the epitome of "Welcome Friends." From just the entrance a guest can see into not only the living room, the formal dining room, the kitchen & bright open study but also the grand stairway where just a few generations of elegant ladies made their first appearance for a number of galas, celebrations, balls, proms, weddings & other such events.If ever you've been mesmerized by a scene from a movie where a lovely young woman descended a gleaming hard wood stairway & dreamed of owning such a grand place, this is your opportunity. It won't come often. The current owner is only the fourth family to own this property. Downstairs living area is large a mostly open. Each room flows to the next via main gathering area at the base of the staircase. Formal dining rooms were the focus of entertaining in those days and this home is the perfect place to welcome company. The kitchen has space for a table and a connected room to be used as a pantry and/or small office. Climbing the stairs you'll come to a large landing. There is a basketball goal in this spot that has seen many actual games if that shows the size of this area. This is just one of the many hints as to the what's important in this house--making the most of life. The master bedroom takes up most of the southeast quarter of the upstairs. A large room with high ceilings and the second fireplace. (Has been permanently stopped but is still beautiful). A sizable dressing room is off to the side that leads to a kitchenette, room for games, TV, guests, projects anything you could ever need. Wood burning stove in the basement. Built in gas line for grill. Three car plus attached garage.
