Built in 1911, this 3-bedroom home with over 1800 sq.ft. on a corner lot, is on the market for the first time in nearly 60 years. Refinished wood floors, stone fireplace, newer paint, dual pane windows, light fixture, dishwasher. Century old detail with brass elements and Art Nouveau stained glass. Foundation raised in 1961 to allow an approx. 6-foot high cement full basement. Back yard. Roof and chimney replaced in the last 20 years. Potential to add master bathroom, convert the unfinished tall attic space or dig out the basement to add another 800 sq.ft. or ADU.

What I love about this home:

I love the size, shape and overall uniqueness that this house offers. Right from the start the house looks like a cross between Victorian and Craftsman. Inside there are push button light switches and brass plates, lead glass windows, Art Nouveau stain glass, original brass cabinet hardware and light fixtures throughout mixed with updated contemporary light fixtures as well. The kitchen is begging for French doors that open to a patio deck while the upstairs oversized bedroom could easily accomodate a private bathroom. The gumwood walls and beams in the dining room create an old time setting while the elegant gray and white painted living room with coved ceilings is simply gorgeous. The tall attic could be transformed into more useable space as could the six foot high basement. Throw in that the house is in Edison School and Fernside District, this house will certainly attract a lot of attention. Please note that there is only one full bathroom inside the living space while an extra working toilet is in the basement.
