Sparkling, Spacious Home in Highly Desirable Easton Addition
Overview: 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 1996 sq. ft., 6000 sq. ft. lot
In the extremely sought-after neighborhood of Easton Addition is this absolutely wonderful 1924 home. Sharp, stylish living spaces pop across the floorplan where classic era details meet up with modernity in design. Very cool!
Out front, colorful landscaping graces the sweet façade and welcoming wrap-around front porch—a perfect spot to chat with neighbors walking the sidewalks on the leafy, tree-lined street.
Open, Bright Living
Inside, meticulously refinished oak floors throughout beautifully contrast the striking newly painted white walls. Off the entry, the front living room features wood plantation shutters on a wide front window and a white brick centerpiece fireplace for a toasty ambiance during lively evening conversations. For a quiet night, one can make a book selection off the built-in shelving and bury a nose in the enthralling novel in this special room.
The delightful style continues in the formal dining room featuring new contemporary lighting—a perfect setting for quaint dining with the family and effervescent holiday dinner parties. The art deco glass doorknobs are an enriching nod to the past.
The eat-in chef’s kitchen is special. Stone counters complement rich gray lower and white upper cabinetry. The stainless-steel appliances, including a top-of-the-line Miele gas range and electric oven, equip the family chef for preparing culinary delights. A social spot in the home, people can gather at the peninsula and in the connected casual dining area for apps and wine. Very functional, and completing the design is a built-in desk for home management.
Down the half stairway in the back of the home is the open and bright family room. What a room to settle in for movie nights! Two walls of windows illuminate the dramatic room, and the vaulted ceiling creates airy volume. Plus, for indoor-outdoor flow, sliding doors open to the back patio. Connected to the family room is an adjacent full bath and an office nook—a handy zoom space for working from home.
The gleaming wood floors continue into two bedrooms, which are served by a central and cheerful bath. Three hallway storage closets and a large attic with ladder access add to the functionality. Privately situated upstairs is the third and primary bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, skylight for extra natural light, and pleasant views of the backyard.
In the backyard, vibrant green landscaping and the charming patio with stone accents provide lovely outdoor dining and entertaining. Fenced in, furry friends can frolic freely out back, and athletic types will enjoy the sports court with a professional-style basketball hoop. Also, out back, the detached garage was converted into two rooms—one large storage room and one as a bonus room/private office.
