amazing indoor-outdoor connection!
This unique and spacious brick- and cedar-clad 1949 one-level rambler is wonderfully sited on a gently curving street in a quiet residential neighborhood, facing the utterly charming Victory Heights Park!
Surrounded by beautiful and lush established gardens, professionally designed and organically maintained with a drip irrigation system; a circular bluestone patio at the entry to the covered front porch is accessed via gravel paths from the street, driveway and south side.
Inside, a palette of light, neutral tones was chosen to highlight the peaceful, everchanging garden views throughout. A mantled wood-burning fireplace (with an insert for more efficient heating) provides a visual anchor for the commodious living room, which has three picture windows looking out to the front garden and opens, via a large archway to the expanded dining room, which has three skylights and a big window looking out to the back garden — creating a solarium-like space.
The large, open kitchen has loads of cabinets and counter space — including a breakfast bar opening to the skylit family room (with glass-block window) adjacent to the garage entry door. Another window above the sink overlooks the garden. Double glass doors open to the partially covered patio, creating a seamless extension to the outside. A hallway off the family room leads to a wing with full bath, the laundry room, and the third bedroom – with a separate entry, making it ideal for a home office, guest suite or shared living.
The very functional floor plan has a windowed hallway from the formal front entry leading to the other two bedrooms, one a spacious master with two closets and wood, double-paned windows. A full bath between the bedrooms has a glass block window with tile shower surround and tile floor, an extra-large vanity and plenty of additional storage cabinets. A separate coat and linen closet are accessed off the hall.
A driveway leading to the garage allows for additional parking. The garage has built-in cabinets, workbench and pull-down stairs for additional attic storage. Also housed here are the boiler, water heater, and electrical panel.
The backyard is fully fenced and includes raised beds and is relatively level with many easily maintained shrubs and trees for privacy and year-round beauty. A separate garden brochure with a detailed plant list is available upon request.
The current owners had the plumbing supply lines replaced, added attic insulation, and installed a drip irrigation system. The washer & dryer were replaced in 2018, the dishwasher in 2016, and a secure mailbox was added!
