Located in the Fiske Terrace- Midwood Park Historic District, this special sunlit one-family home has been meticulously cared for by the same family for over 60 years. It is a wonderful example of the Colonial Revival-style mixed with Arts & Crafts elements. Designed by architect Benjamin Driesler and built c.1907 by the John R. Corbin Company, the house has a wrap-around porch with shingled columns, projecting bay windows, and intersecting gabled roofs with an abundance of curb appeal. This outstanding house is set back from the road with a green lawn and shares a driveway to access a gabled one car garage plus parking for one more car.
The original front door opens to an inviting foyer with a beautiful stained glass window leading to a large reception room with a beamed ceiling, decorative fireplace, bay window and another lovely stained glass window. Exquisite border patterns compliment the parquet floors, different in each room. Another large living room with bay windows that flood it with light overlooks the front porch. The large separate dining room has a beamed ceiling and inlaid parquet floors with connecting French doors leading to the eat-in-kitchen and adjoining home office. The generous kitchen enjoys morning light with northern and eastern exposures. A concrete patio for grilling and sunbathing with steps down to the garden and garage can be accessed through the back door.
The stairs to the bedroom floor are illuminated by another pretty stained glass window bringing you onto a large central landing leading to four large bedrooms and a bathroom with a sunken tub and separate shower stall. The master bedroom has a stunning sunroom with windows on three sides. The second front bedroom has bay windows and a tremendous walk-in-closet. The top floor has another gracious landing leading to two large rooms with high ceilings, beautiful curved eaves and wooden sash windows with wooden glazing divides on the upper windows. This floor also has a charming bathroom with a claw footed bathtub plus a separate utility room.
This warm and welcoming home also has a finished basement containing a second kitchen with breakfast bar, laundry area, half bathroom and an additional sitting room. There is an unfinished portion offering significant storage space and the mechanicals.
