This 72 year-old Cape has received two major additions since its original construction. Those renovations granted a lot more living space within its current 3,253 square foot home, but the spirit and character and fine craftsmanship of this classic designed by noted Winchester architect Jerome Bailey Foster was very nicely preserved in the process. Many of the rooms and spaces still contain warm, natural woods, from the floors, walls, ceilings and even doors and built-ins display the great use of organic materials and space that was utilized during that period.
The first floor offers a spacious 22 x 14 square foot fireplaced living room encased in a paneled wall and a charming window seat flanked by built-in bookcases and a 14 x 13 square foot gracious dining area with a built-in china cabinet. The open 22 x 18 square foot eat-in kitchen boasts many culinary and comforting ingredients with granite surfaces, double ovens, island seating, a work station and a lovely casual dining area. A 13 x 11 square foot den/office and a full bath completes the available living space on this level.
On the second story, there is a luxurious 23 x 12 square foot master bedroom with a walk-in closet, full private bath and laundry chute to the first-floor laundry room. There are also three additional bedrooms at 13 x 12, 11 x 10 and 15 x 14 square feet, a second full family bath and an inviting 9 x 6 square foot sitting room.
This property also offers many structural and outdoor amenities, such as a partially finished walk-out basement, invisible canine fence, alarm system and a lovely, picturesque nearly one half acre private landscape filled with colorful and mature trees, greens and gardens. It is also located a quiet dead-end street within walking distance to the Ambrose School.
Historical supporters will find this home extremely appealing, but potential homebuyers searching for a spacious residence that already offers many of today's amenities will also be very satisfied with its content. And often times, those consumers have a blend of both styles, which is exactly what this home offers.
