You've encountered a treasure! Authentic and gorgeous architecture- combining a loving restoration of quality craftsmanship with added designer renovations to serve the next 100 years. Nestled amongst heirloom landscaping and expansive private gardens, and served by towering trees, this charming wor...ld beyond the picket fence is seeking its next caretakers... Ascend the freshly painted steps of the Wrap-around Porch and a true "Welcome" awaits through the original doublewide Oak Doors! Breathtaking, gleaming heart of pine floors meander throughout the gracious layout of Foyer, Front Parlor, Library/ Living Room, then a Formal Dining Room. The back Kitchen Wing of the home hosts a second staircase, plus sun drenched rooms that delight the senses! Inside out and outside in, this rusticly playful but elegant design incorporates state-of-the-art appliances, juxtaposed with original cast iron stove and laundry sink. Carrera Marble accents with gorgeous granite counters, plus handsome soft close Shaker cabinets- all provide Chef an inspiring respite. A brand new full Bath, plus super fresh first floor Laundry Room delight with an old fashioned screen door slam- sharing news of an entry or a departure to the beckoning rear yard and gardens.
