Old world character meets modern finish and design in this lovely 3 bedroom (or 2 plus den/nursery) renovated flat. Set on the first floor of an intimate 2 unit building, this home features a unique combination of space, light and extra functional areas creatively configured to enhance living and entertaining throughout. Two master bedroom options are presented with the parlor bedroom, set behind glass French doors, easily configured to double the size of the front entertaining space. The second master and third bedroom are quietly positioned mid-way through the home. An expansive, renovated kitchen with large dining and worktop island (complete with butcher top and prep sink), offers up more space, light and functionality than one would ever expect. A new Bertazzoni range, Fisher Paykel fridge, sub counter 2-zone wine cooler and refinished concrete counter tops highlight this fabulous space.
Open to the kitchen is a gracious dining room lined with wainscoting and original leaded glass hutch. The space is perfect for entertaining large groups or simply an intimate location for two to gather in the sitting area. Both dining and kitchen areas look out to the private entertaining deck, modernly configured and easily capable of hosting outdoor gatherings of 8 or more. Also adjacent to the kitchen is a delightful extension hosting new full-sized washer/dryer, sink, finished storage and another desk area with delightful outlooks to the garden beyond. The shared garden is just steps below and features planter beds, benches and irrigation systems.
The home also uniquely offers radiant floor heating, throughout, a rare but much appreciated feature in an intimate 2 unit building. 1 1/4 baths, large deeded storage areas and a very large, independent, deeded parking area round out the offerings of this beautiful home.
