MUST SEE! Step back in time with this iconic, 3,204sf Monte Vista Historic classic, built in 1912. Enter the Great Room and marvel at the beauty of the 11' beamed ceilings w/four matching ceiling fans/lights and beautiful crown molding. Keep warm while relaxing by the wood burning fireplace. Carved moldings above the fireplace are flanked by two stained glass windows, and bookcases built-in on each side. Gorgeous hardwood floors in many rooms throughout. Take note of the original doors, hardware, and magnificent archway's woodwork that showcases the stairway. Grand pocket doors w/transoms and amazing stained glass inserts lead to the Dining Room, also with 11' beamed ceilings and 5' tall wainscoting. Enter the Study/Ofc through the French doors with an alternate exit through the back stairwell entrance/exit. The Butlers Pantry w/great built ins between the dining room and the kitchen is an added delight with great storage too. The kitchen has 42" walnut cabinetry, tile countertops and backsplash. Stainless steel appliances throughout including a new, gas smart stove with air fryer. The Breakfast Nook has a nostalgic built in bench with table. The kitchen leads to back stairwell room, great for storage or garden room w/a .25 bathroom (toilet only) and exits to the back yard. The Cloak Room is adjacent to the Great Room w/built in telephone desk that leads to the outside Carriage Landing through a side door and down to the basement through another door. The basement (Perfect for a wine cellar) has plenty of storage capacity, good lighting, and has been finished w/masonry walls and a sealed concrete floor. All bedrooms are located on the second floor landing, accessed by the classic staircase w/curved wooden handrails. The crystal chandelier is a showpiece attached to the 10.5' ceiling. Admire the transoms with adorned stained glass inserts on three of the bedroom doors. Each bedroom has crown molding, toe molding, high ceilings, large closets, original hardwood floors, and one bedroom, has its own wood burning fireplace. The master bedroom has a bonus room attached, perfect for a nursery, workout, meditation, or media room. The hallway full bathroom has wood cabinetry, double sinks, tub/shower combo w/tile midway up the walls and on the floors. There is an upstairs back stairwell landing with built in shelf/case for storing seasonal items or supplies. This leads to an additional 4th bedroom, (live-in quarters, crafts, utility room, etc.) with a large closet that currently houses the extra large washer and dryer. What remains is the Covered Front Porch & Side Sun Patio, Upstairs Balcony to "unplug" watching the sun rise and sun set. The Carriage House (detached garage), is a brick building with 2 bays and secured with vintage doors. There is a full bath (restoration needed) in the back of one of the bays. The Storage House (another detached garage), is a wood siding building w/composition roof and double doors open to the 15' paved alley (private drive to the back of the property) or one opening from the back yard. The Attic is huge w/access from the hallway closet. In 2018 a 4 ton, 14 seer, with heat pump and ultraviolet light central HVAC system was installed for upstairs cooling needs. A new 25 yr. composition roof with ridge vents was installed in 2016. Gentle upgrades have been made throughout the years, but its original structural beauty and "vintage charm" have been guarded. This is a Historians Dream that could well represent "one" of the best preserved homes of pre-World War I structures in the Monte Vista Historic District. It is literally "Preservation at its finest" and a MUST SEE!!
