High ceilings grace the rooms on each level, adorned with original moulding and functional grates outlined with ornamental metal millwork frame ventilation channels. No glitzy renovations here, this house sings old world Charm and character, accented with a few modern accessories to create an interesting blend. New wood floors line the living and dining areas, nudging the lustrous original wood staircase that leads to the upper levels. Light streams through two large windows, meeting light from an opposite third window in the center of the comfortable living room. A large fireplace has been sealed and it's authentic mantle brightens one wall. The generous apportioned dining room is ideal for entertaining, casual or formal and a 3-pendant track light adds a modern touch. A well proportioned kitchen with original wood cabinetry, a stunning ceiling to match, white appliances, and tile flooring creates a character that is innate to this style and offers plenty of space for cooking and preparation. Granite tile mixing the modern gray and traditional wood theme, comprises the ample counter and is accented with a white tile backsplash. A well designed half bath has been conveniently tucked next to the kitchen. The second floor announces an open study complete with distinctive wood built-ins including a unique corner hutch.
