The new owners of this ageless 122 year-old Victorian on Warren St. will never take for granted the architectural jewels scattered throughout this beautiful 11 room home. Many of its constructive details are displayed in plain sight with oversized windows, vintage moldings and a unique fluid floor plan, but some are more discrete, such as pocket doors, charming nooks, distinctive room dimensions and its global historical spirit. While many of these distinguishing features have thankfully been preserved, its owners have also valued the significance of progressive designs and have applied many tasteful and upgraded renovations that compliment the home's grace and charm.
The home's interesting exterior lines give a hint to its interior period blueprint. The 16 x 13 square foot living room displays an alcove of elongated windows as well as the spectacular 16 x 11 square foot sunroom that provides picturesque views of the scenic landscape. The 14 x 12 square foot dining area provides an elegant setting for formal entertaining with soft, muted tones lining the walls and ceiling while fireplaces in the 18 x 15 and 16 x 13 square foot family room and sitting room offer a more relaxed ambiance. The 15 x 14 square foot eat-in kitchen is an eclectic blend of the past and future with updated stainless steel appliances and lighting casting a sleek yet classic look to this central family hub.
The second floor hosts four incredibly generous bedrooms with a 16 x 15 square foot master suite with a walk-in closet and dressing room, three additional bedrooms at 13, x 11, 14 x 12 and 13 x 12 square feet and a full family bath. The third floor stretches the available living space within this home within its incredible, versatile footprint with a 14 x 11 square foot bedroom, full bath and a custom-designed 21 x 13 square foot family/activity room with a skylight and a wall of built-ins that stretches the length of the room.
This beautiful home has sustained its majestic presence in town not only by its superior construction but also with its timeless splendor. The opportunity to purchase a local historic architectural treasure does not present itself very often in today's real estate market so homebuyers are encouraged to act quickly. This gem will not remain available for long.
