Authentic olde world charm is built into this 1908 classic that sits in University Park. One proof that the house works as well as it looks: this is the first time it has been on the market in forty years.
Charm and University come together in the quintessential den/library. Of course, there’s an almost requisite wall of bookshelves. The room displays several features that permeate the house. Rich wood trim wraps the room, the windows, and the doors. Look down and see hardwood floors, naturally. The oak ribbon inlays are an extra touch that would be hard to replicate. Look up and see a three-panel stained glass window. To the side sits the antique version of radiant heat, a radiator.
That same feel flows through the rest of the house, with a few additions. The living room includes a bay window, box beam ceiling, and stout fireplace.
The dining room is dressed in wood panels that wrap the room in elegance.
Settle into the master suite (one of three bedrooms) where the tone is kept lighter by using white trim. For those rainy days when staying home is the wisest move, there’s a sun room that pulls in more light.
Tile pragmatically and stylishly replaces wood for dominance in the two and a quarter bathrooms where modern lighting and plumbing fixtures prove upgrades happened.
Outside the 1,930 square-foot house is a 4,320 square-foot lot that designed for entertaining and low maintenance. Instead of a lawn there is a series of tiled patios that sit amidst well-established gardens.
The price for established elegance is $974,500, though in this market don’t be surprised if that gets adjusted. Will the next residents settle in for another forty years?
