Description

This spacious corner house in the Southeast Quadrant offers immense natural sunlight from three sides. Built in 1842, this historic home features original heart pine floors, nine over nine pane tall windows and eleven-foot-high ceilings, two stunning archway entrances grace the living room along with beautiful millwork. An original exposed brick wall offers texture and interest in the long dining room, perfect for entertaining. A hyphen hallway ushers you into the bright family room, perfect for TV watching, and French glass doors open to the patio garden. Culinary enthusiasts will love the kitchen renovation with careful attention to every detail including the Bertazzoni stove, Bosch dishwasher, Sub-Zero refrigerator, custom cabinetry, and coffered ceiling. Enjoy meals sitting by the windowed eat-in area or at the island and admire the handsome gas fireplace with an original carved mantel. The glass French door connecting the kitchen to the tranquil flagstone patio garden creates a seamless indoor-outdoor flow, perfect for hosting outdoors in warm weather. A powder room with sophisticated wallpaper is convenient and accommodates guests. Sleeping quarters reside upstairs and provide a peaceful place to unwind and relax. The light-filled primary suite is delightful featuring bookshelves, skylight, and a walk-in custom closet. Find your zen in the renovated spa-like primary bath with a free-standing tub, steam shower with seamless glass door, marble top vanity, skylight, and exposed brick wall. Two spacious bedrooms are beautifully appointed with ample closets and many windows. An updated full bath with a seamless glass shower, laundry, and additional storage completes the second floor. The versatile lower level can be utilized for storage or it can be transformed into a workout space with exercise equipment or yoga mats. It is a practical and appealing extension of this wonderful home. A prime Old Town location offers an idyllic living experience with convenient access to shops, restaurants, parks, and the waterfront.
