Perched on a corner lot along a tree-lined street in the culturally-rich Park Hill neighborhood, resides this immaculately updated Tudor masterpiece. This fairytale cottage immerses one into the mystery of an English countryside as Shakespearian architecture abounds with dramatically swept rooflines, half-timbering, and a cupola-topped, triple arched turret. Stroll through the gardens and onto the sidewalks to the bakery, coffee shop, library and more- mere steps away in this quiet hamlet- as you admire the architecturally significant homes around you.
As you venture towards the front door through the tulips, fruit trees and past the stone ball-bubbler – features for an eleven-zone sprinkler system, security cameras, and timer-controlled garden lights are seamlessly hidden amongst the professional landscaping. The exterior of the home showcases leaded-glass arched windows, french doors leading to a brick porch with a decorative insert in the chimney, and a private secret garden in the rear with arched wooden carriage-doors leading into the double garage. The thick brick walls keep the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Stepping into the front turret, marvel at the Tiffany stained glass and beautiful wood-framed leaded glass windows. This entry opens up into an expansive living room with hardwood floors, a wall of original casement windows, and a wood-burning fireplace featuring an ash door and custom tile inserts. Built-ins like a drawer filled linen closet, a laundry chute and even an original milk door are delightful reminders of days gone by. Practical touches which enhance the livability of this fine home are the whole-house attic fan, security screens on the main floor windows, completely updated utilities, a custom storage system in the garage, and even a brand new mudroom connecting the double garage and house.
The exquisite kitchen beckons the connoisseurs of life to create. Original cabinetry has been enhanced with custom trim and under cabinet lighting. Gleaming stainless steel, coupled with granite countertops, a built-in pantry and a very useful kitchen nook full of cabinets, will delight the gourmand. The large dining room features exquisite French doors which open to a private patio overlooking a green lawn and gardens. A nearby bathroom on this level has a surprisingly modern original tile. Completing this first level of the home is a serene master suite and two additional bedrooms with ample built-in closets.
Downstairs opens up into a relaxing family room with a second wood burning fireplace and custom mood lighting for a tranquil escape from the world beyond. This level is home to the fourth bedroom, second full bath, a huge laundry room, and vast storage.
Enjoy the solace and serenity of this elegant home within this highly sought after Park Hill community. This haven and lifestyle beckon the discriminating seeking an enduring retreat. Shopping and recreational amenities are right around the corner.
