From the moment you pull up to this turn of the 20th century Trolley Square twin, you will understand what charm, history, and convenience mean to you all rolled up into a 4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bathroom beautiful home! The entrance has wood double doors to protect the home from the elements. Enter a charming foyer where you will immediately notice the original banisters, and decorative fireplace providing inviting warmth and a nook to sit down and remove your boots. To the right of the foyer is a front room with pocket doors that could easily be converted into private study or music room. Note the original stained glass windows that enhance the working windows. That room flows into a generous family room large enough to hold a sectional and giant TV! The high ceilings provide additional elegance to the spacious dining room. From there you'll find a powder room and updated kitchen with white cabinets, stainless appliances, beautiful granite counters and butcher block eat-in island! The washer and dryer are conveniently closeted here as well. From the kitchen you'll enjoy expanded dining space on the new deck which steps down into one of the prettiest gardens of this size that you will find in Trolley Square. The current owner is a Winterthur trained gardener and has planted beautiful perennials that require minimal maintenance while providing year round color.... wait until you see it in the Spring! Add a fire pit and you are all set for the cozy fall nights to come. This main level provides great entertaining flow from inside the foyer to the common areas and to the fully fenced garden. You can even have guests enter from the brick path at the side of the house without having to come in if you're entertaining outside during this time. And because it's a twin, the home also has wonderful light with the over-sized windows. You will particularly appreciate this as you tour the 4 generously sized bedrooms. On the second floor you will find an owners suite with custom blinds and two custom closets. The bathroom is large with double sinks and a tub/shower. There's also a hall bathroom for the two other bedrooms. One of the bedrooms includes shelving enabling the room to easily be converted to home office/study, but also has new custom closets for use as a bedroom or more off-season clothing storage. The 3rd bedroom also has large custom closets. The 3rd floor provides the 4th bedroom which is surprisingly large, tucked into the eaves of the house. It holds a queen or king bed and desk/dresser area. The adjacent bathroom is enormous. This 3rd floor could be a wonderful private owners suite, guest suite or yoga studio/gym! The home also has a basement with a workshop and bilco door entrance, so can be ventilated for the home hobbyist. With a newer (2015) roof, central air, multiple updates throughout including updated kitchen, NEW custom blinds, NEW custom closets, NEW security system, NEW deck and professionally landscaped garden, NEW Ring doorbell and Nest Thermostat, combined with authentically preserved original charm, what more could you ask for?
