Property Description:

Circa 1890 this semi-detached historic jewel of a house is waiting for you! So many original elements are in place and in mint condition. An inviting vestibule offers original interior doors and hardware. A beautiful living room awash in natural light with high ceilings and fireplace will be the place you'll entertain or read a book. Tall original pocket doors separate the living room from the dining room which also offers chair rail, more windows and another original mantel frame. A proper hallway displays the staircase with the detailed original newel post and travels from the front door to the kitchen ushering you to the back part of the house. There is a separate home office with a side door entrance, a stainless-granite kitchen with island on wheels with storage. Stainless appliances have been recently updated with warranty. The adjoining family room has an exposed brick wall, built-in bookshelves and a wall of Marvin windows and glass door opening to the deep garden and patio area. A stunning master suite with 10' high ceilings features many windows and French doors opening to a delightful balcony overlooking the garden. An antique claw foot tub with brass fixtures anchors the master bath with beadboard walls and a seamless glass shower door. The guest room suite has an alcove for reading, painting, or exercising. Mirrored closets and a classic tiled guest bath also with seamless glass shower door. Spacious patio and garden are filled with camellias, rhododendron, a flowering dogwood tree, a lush English laurel and a swarf magnolia tree. All in a perfect location walkable to the park, to King Street, and the grocery store!
