The home of your dreams and definitely worth the wait. The culmination of a two-year restoration project, this stunning, sophisticated house is located on one of Kenwood's most desired streets. Essentially a new house crafted on the existing stone foundation, no detail has been left unattended. The exterior craftsmanship is vintage turn-of-the-century with a graceful elevation and remarkable appeal. Exterior siding, chimney, impressive wood windows and oak doors, copper gutters and roof are new and detailed to match the home's historic legacy. A new steel support structure permitted an addition that created a light-filled kitchen and two porches, resulting in a stunning rear elevation. The interior must be toured to truly appreciate the commitment to custom design and imagination. The comprehensive demolition allowed for extensive reconfiguration into a smart and charming floor plan. The most dramatic improvement is the main stairway which now rises three stories. Competing equally for attention is the gorgeous gourmet kitchen. Six new bedrooms, five and one-half new baths, two new fireplaces with custom marble surrounds, and wine/coffee bar seamlessly integrate modern comfort into the elegance of a bygone era. Sleek aesthetics include new 6 1/4-inch quarter sawn white oak flooring, quartzite countertops, high-end stainless appliances, individually selected light fixtures and artfully chosen paint hues. Numerous covered porches overlook the street and oversized yard. As to the practical, closets are custom finished, there are two laundry rooms, the garage has been rebuilt, heating and a/c systems are high-efficiency and zoned, insulation is 8 inches of R-28 open cell. The finished basement features a well-appointed bedroom, full bath and an abundance of open space - all with floors of radiant heat. For well over a century this house has graced the tree-lined avenue; it has been meticulously and magnificently rebuilt to do so for the next hundred years. And you can be the custodian of the next chapter of this home's marvelous history.
