We invite you to come see the old-world craftsmanship, modern infrastructure, and timeless design of this home. Warm, relaxed, and comfortable, fully updated without being stripped of its charm, understated and calmly impressive. On the market for the first time in more than 20 years, this is a rare opportunity to become the next caretakers of this iconic 1925 home. Fully and lovingly restored with deep respect for the craftsmanship with which it was originally built, this home is for the buyer who is looking for both style and substance. An impressive home in any era, this Arts & Crafts 4-Square was built with figured quarter-sawn white oak floors, quarter-sawn white oak trim, spacious rooms, tall ceilings throughout, and a truly functional floor plan with large bedrooms, real closets, a laundry room upstairs, and plenty of storage. Set up above the street, the home has amazing natural light with treehouse views into the canopy of the 100-year-old sycamore trees and the natural landscaping of the Gilmer Park Red Butte Creek gully. Silky soapstone countertops and hand-crafted face-framed cabinetry throughout. The built-in bookcases in the downstairs family room were saved from the original F Street library, with the original brass nameplates on some of the shelves. The recent addition of a tastefully designed attached 3-car garage (rare for the area) provides not only ample parking but also a spacious elevated deck for entertaining. A more private south-facing deck has a relaxing hot tub and a sheltered patio for morning coffee. The large fully finished and heated workshop downstairs could be repurposed as a 4th car bay off the garage. The state-of-the-art boiler system lets you enjoy unlimited hot water and quiet, clean, and steady radiant heat - far and away the most comfortable way to heat a home. 3/4" thick quarter-sawn white oak hardwood floors, original quarter-sawn white oak trim, exterior walls are 3 courses of brick thick, sound-deadening lathe & plaster interior walls, basement ceilings are 8' tall, original door hardware consistent throughout, vintage light fixtures updated with LED lighting, character double-hung windows on the main floor have been fully restored with American Heritage custom storm windows and screens, newer double-pane windows up and down, modern Buderus 8-zone hot water radiant heat with copper supply lines and constant unlimited culinary hot-water, original radiators have been sandblasted and powder-coated for a forever finish, copper (not pex or polybutylene pipe) sub-floor heat in master bath and kitchen, 2 central A/C systems fully ducted and thermostat controlled, fully rewired with a new service using 12 gauge electrical wire throughout (heavier duty than more common 14 gauge), all electrical outlets are fully grounded, additional electrical outlets conveniently situated along exterior walls (unusual in a masonry home), all plumbing supply lines have been updated with pex with a Manablock control system, all plumbing drain lines have been updated and replaced including a new clean-out and sewer line to the street, new 1" incoming water supply line (larger than the more commonly used 3/4"), 50-year architectural shingles, roof was fully stripped and re-roofed in 2011, copper roof over front door eyebrow, R-52 attic insulation, fully insulated walls and ceilings in lower level, large closets and extensive storage throughout.
