Live in timeless elegance in this stately, gated 5+BR/2BA East End home near Edison Elementary featuring a finished basement apartment area, freestanding bonus space/home office and magical treehouse. This architecturally rich 4018 square foot home sits on a large lot with a wisteria-covered trellis gate, backyard gazebo, greenhouse, and an English garden with fountain welcoming you to the home. The foyer is from a bygone era with elegant staircase and what is believed to be the home’s original 1910 chandelier. The living room is a grand space with a picture window overlooking the garden, a niched ceiling, wainscoting, crown molding, and a centerpiece fireplace flanked by built-in bookshelves. Both the living room and dining room enjoy pocket doors for privacy and quietude. The spacious dining room boasts leaded glass built-in cabinets. Adjoining the dining room, the renovated kitchen maintains the home’s historic character while including modern upgrades like a Wolf stove, custom farmhouse sink, and paneled refrigerator. Enjoy your morning coffee in the large breakfast nook with garden view. The first floor is complete with a renovated full bath and laundry area. Upstairs find four large bedrooms, a huge enclosed sleeping porch, an upgraded full bath, beautiful built-in cabinets, and a giant primary bedroom with a wall of casement windows, sconces, and a walk-in closet. Surrounded by the backyard’s mature landscaping, eat al fresco under the covered gazebo, gather with friends around the gas firepit, relax by the gurgling pond, or climb the treehouse for a playful retreat. Grow orchids or a winter vegetable garden in your large greenhouse and use the multiple storage sheds for gardening tools and extra space. The detached structure makes for a great office or playroom with considerable storage. Through a separate entrance, the basement apartment offers multiple rooms with a large living area, kitchen, and windows. Top schools, shopping, dining, parks, and the beach are all nearby!
