Property Description

Welcome home to this immaculately maintained residence in the highly desirable Andorra section of the city. This historic home (c.1857) has been completely restored and reimagined for the most discerning buyer. Neatly stacked colonial brownstone walls and Belgium block pavers greet you as you travel up the long driveway. Walking up the bluestone steps and over a brick walkway you will enter through the front door.

Next, you will be impressed upon entering the family room with its high ceilings and abundance of natural light. The continuation of reclaimed longleaf pine floors carries throughout this room. Other features such as led recessed lighting, exquisite 5 piece crown molding, and a large sliding door glass wall help to bring the outdoors in. This will lead you out to the massive flagstone patio outside. Complete with a custom pergola and fire pit, perfect for entertaining and barbecues. Coming back inside through the family room and entering the beautiful kitchen you will see bright white inset cabinetry, black slate heated floors, led recessed lighting, Carrara marble countertops, thassos marble backsplash, large island with thick reclaimed heart pine top, and stainless steel appliances. Off the kitchen is a powder room and laundry room with plenty of storage cabinets. Completing the first floor is the eat in dining room that boasts of the same wainscoting and crown molding as the living room. Traveling up the stairs you will find 3 spacious bedrooms with oak hardwood floors throughout and an updated modern full bath with calacatta marble accents.
