Description

Lovingly maintained and restored Victorian-era home on a quiet Edgewater Beach one-way street. Only 2 streets away from coveted Osterman beach and around the corner from the Redline, Whole Foods, and boutique shops. Over the last few years, the home's owners managed to bring this gem back to life with the addition of modern, "must-haves" like central A/C, copper plumbing, new siding, new gutters, and added electrical capacity. Still, every caution was observed to preserve the home's beautiful Chicago-style craftsmanship. If these hardwood floors could talk! Original doors, tile, and handmade hardware can be seen throughout the home. Classic features like deep farmhouse sinks, marble accents, and stunning original ornate leaded glass blend with modern touches like bike storage racks and even computerized sprinkler systems. The updated Kitchenaid stainless-steel kitchen flows effortlessly to the large exterior french doors leading to a newly added double-decker patio. Currently, the top floor functions as a cozy private container garden that overlooks the magazine-worthy hardscaped backyard. Stuffed full of native perennials and fruit trees, this backyard remains virtually hands-free. Raw basement and attic spaces (with good height) are perfect for adding your own character. The owners are insistent that we find someone that loves the home as much as they have!
