This handsome Twin is a stunning example of the Victorian era’s Queen Anne architectural movement - just as stately and desirable today as when they were built. Here you will find the handsome turrets, hip roofs, multiple fireplaces and covered porches and bays that earmark this classic style. In addition to this beautiful home, family life extends into the fenced section of the property, where the attractive brick patio (22' x 15') and large backyard combine for fun and entertainment. The other delightful surprise is the oversized 2-car garage (23' x 23') and long driveway. The front porch and 2nd floor balcony provide even more outdoor living space. Though the house’s initial appearance may make one envision a rambling mansion, this home’s efficient design provides dynamic yet easy-to-manage public and private areas. High baseboards line the handsome wood floors of the first two levels. The spacious living and dining rooms both feature brick fireplaces and original wood wainscoting beneath their unique massive windows, many of which are leaded or curved glass windows. Many upgrades, like recessed lighting, energy-efficient windows and state-of-the-art kitchen & bathroom provide both quality of life and economic benefits. Hit the switch and the recessed lights brightening this cooks kitchen magically transforms this heart of the house. Cooks love the 18’ of glass tile backsplash and granite countertops - in addition to nearly 20 sq ft of kitchen island (electrified) with 5’ of under-counter seating. The 45 ft of Ebony Regal easy-close drawers and cabinets should satisfy your every storage need. The open kitchen working area flows into a generous breakfast nook. The kitchen’s beautiful Pavimento Halcon tile flooring continues into the laundry/mudroom and the outside patio. The family room off the 2nd floor landing features a brick fireplace across from the bay extension and two doors; one to the 2nd floor’s covered porch (22' x 8') and the other to the delightfully spacious Venus Beige tiled stall shower bathroom. Like the living room below, the front bedroom features the corner turret extension. The 2nd bedroom is set above the breakfast room and opens into the (now) office and can easily function as a bedroom suite. The comfortable 3rd floor rooms, made cozy by hip roof lines feature two more bedrooms with a hall bathroom and an attic storage room. Abundant storage is available in the clean, unfinished basement. There are many built-in niceties to discover here, but most of all, this is a “forever” property that you, your family and friends will relish and fondly remember! Do call for your appointment and maybe you will live the dream!
