Winchester Home of the Week: 111 Church St.
Layers of distinctive architecture elegantly reveal this home's rich legacy.
The distinctive period architecture and unique fabrication of this 112 year-old colonial is immediately evident as guests pull up in front of this Winchester "Grand Dame." It displays incredibly creative lines and features that not only pops from its property lines, it is an historical gem that has proudly overlooked Church St. for many generations.
Six thousand square feet of interior living space echo the home's exterior epoch character with rooms exhibiting many facets of its original construction of only the finest materials within creative and unique designs. Rich woods line the floors, walls and even ceilings in many rooms and abundance of decorative windows and doors are prime examples of its expert craftsmanship that unfold throughout many unique rooms dimensions granted by its novel construction.
An impressive front foyer with dual French doors and a winding staircase provide a fitting introduction into the home and four main rooms on the first level. The 12 x 16 square foot living room is a beautiful formal setting with a cathedral ceiling and recessed lighting while the 15 x 25 square foot fireplaced dining area makes a striking statement drenched in natural wood on the wainscoting walls, a built-in bench seat and coffered ceiling. The 16 x 21 square foot family room also indulges in the warmth of a fireplace while the 13 x 17 square foot eat-in kitchen draws it hospitality from organic resources with wood cabinets, beamed ceiling and granite surfaces.
The second floor hosts a luxurious 16 x 21 square foot master suite with a fireplace, walk-in closet, balcony and private bath, three additional spacious bedrooms at 12 x 16, 14 x 14, 12 x 18 square feet and a lovely 13 x 17 square foot sitting room. The third story and finished basement provide bonus recreational and leisure alternatives with an 18 x 28 square foot game room with a bar and large cedar closet and a 16 x 27 square foot play room.
This spectacular property located at the gateway to the "Flats" and downtown is a 'once in a lifetime' opportunity to purchase, reside and experience a slice of Winchester's rich historical roots. It also provides convenient access to schools, the commuter rail station, shopping, highways and Winchester Hospital, amenities not initially available when its foundation was originally set. Today's residents will highly benefit from these local opportunities and services yet still personally profit from its stylish grace.
