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.
