Designed by architect A.L. Haley, the home features period details that include a center staircase with top and bottom landings, extensive millwork including a coffered ceiling in the living room, an elevated dining room with fireplace, picture window with built-in seating, hardwood floors and built-in cabinetry throughout. In other words, the magnificence of a bygone era!
The main floor boasts five rooms, including a huge living room that receives loads of natural light through its picture window. One of my favorite features of the home is the raised dining room, whose entry is flanked by gorgeous wood columns.
Another uncommon design element, which I love, is the placement of the fireplace in the dining room. And, of course, the beauty of the original built-in hutch must not be overlooked.
An extensive list of updates, including a complete kitchen makeover, brings this home smartly into the 21st century. The open design of this remodel does a brilliant job of connecting the dining room to the kitchen and features a breakfast bar that easily accommodates 4 seats.
The kitchen, which features stainless appliances and Anne Sacks tiles, is large enough for folks to congregate in as dinner is being prepared.
If you need an extra room for an office, studio, gym, or just a private man-cave, this home has it. In fact, it has two! Pictured above is a private library/studio, with French doors that lead out to the back porch. And below…
We have a wonderful sunroom, featuring a wall of windows whose eastern exposure allows the morning light to spill inside the room.
The wrap-around staircase is literally and figuratively a centerpiece of the home. It features landing at the bottom that can easily accommodate a piano, and another landing at the top, which is large enough to be its own gathering area.
The upstairs landing is surrounded by five bedrooms and a common bathroom.
