Nicely set back from leafy Military Road, this exquisite vintage English Tudor home has been lovingly renovated and updated throughout. The brick construction is embellished with limestone corner detailing and a gabled dormer with stucco and half-timbering. The pretty front walkway leads across a picture perfect lawn to a wrought-iron porch and arched limestone entry.
There are three stories plus a finished basement. Five bedrooms, three full and one half baths, living room, kitchen, dining room, den, in-law suite and bonus room combine to offer family and friends a multitude of choices. Gleaming hardwood floors throughout are embellished with Barry Dixon seagrass rugs and runners edged with Belgium linen and nail head studs. A gorgeous fireplace is crowned by a custom Tudor mantle and framed by tall windows. Stainless steel appliances include a six-burner Jenn-Air range with double ovens, griddle and massive hood. A standing butler’s cabinet and pull-out pantry add to the charm.
From the countless architectural details to its classic layout, this gracious home bespeaks warmth and comfort. There’s a master suite with luxury marble bathroom, organizers by California Closets, a wonderful multi-level deck, outdoor lighting, impeccable landscaping, fruit trees, two sets of washer/dryers, a dual-zoned HVAC system, and even a two-car garage. What a wonderful place to live, love and play!
