One-of-a-kind historic home in the heart of the Old Village, this 1800s gem is a regular in national publications and on numerous high profile garden tours. Restored to perfection with every desirable modern upgrade, it has a beautiful open floor plan, professionally-landscaped gardens, and a serene pool in a prime location.Originally, part of this home was a two story church building. Its middle section includes a brick fireplace rumored to have been a cottage rolled on logs from the Pitt Street bridge down to Carr Street. Recent additions include a master suite, office, and garage with apartment . . . it's literally the best of the old world and the new. The interior has designer style in spades with...custom built cabinetry, beautiful built-ins, Calacatta gold marble countertops, Urban Electric lighting, Rocky Mountain hardware, and high-end fixtures from Moluf's. From the soaring 10'+ ceilings to the custom-stained Brazilian cherry floors downstairs to the original heart pine upstairs, there are too many highlights to mention. The upstairs wall between the existing two bedrooms is non-load-bearing, allowing future plans to include reconfiguring the 2nd floor into 3 bedrooms easily, which would net a 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath home.
The exterior is nothing short of world class, with landscape designed by renowned architect Bill Maneri, Moonlighting landscape lighting, desirable gunite heated saltwater pool with bluestone hardscaping, and a full yard sprinkler system attached to well (no irrigation bill!). Additional perks include Buzz Off mosquito system, and a yard full of edibles- including Meyer lemon, lime, and tangerine trees, blueberry bushes, olive tree, kumquat trees, and a loquat tree. Lastly, there is a raised vegetable garden behind the garage and a flower cutting garden in the front of the house, plus off-street parking for 4 cars.
"Hidden" upgrades include sprayed insulation, encapsulated crawl space, transferrable termite bond, moisture bond, and critter proofing of the entire crawlspace. The exterior black shutters all close for storm protection and there are storm panels for other exposed openings.
