Live in the forest and still be in the heart of one of the city’s most beloved neighborhoods. This sun-dappled property offers 1.42 acres of tree canopy and 18′ feet of frontage on the “pond” where you can launch your kayak. Come down the softly carpeted natural drive and the house and swimming pool will emerge in a circle of sunshine. Screened for lower maintenance, the cool blue water welcomes you in the warmer months and the landscaping buffer adds a tropical ambiance to the setting.

An open porch overlooks the pool and front yard where you can supervise water activities from the sunny perch. Come inside to experience the 25′ x 20′ gathering room under its beamed ceiling. With so much space you can create several seating areas and in cooler months you’ll cozy up around the wood stove nestled in a stone surround. Recently renovated, the eat-in cherry kitchen has a large alcove for casual meals and a bar for friends to sit and offer their advice. Adjacent dining room spills out to marsh-view screened porch for daily meals and dinner parties. Very private en-suite master is on the 1st floor. Dark wood floors complement soft wall color and the new bathroom will be your personal spa. A huge laundry room (large enough to easily split into two spaces) and half bath off the main room complete the downstairs. 4 comfortable bedrooms with treetop views share a full bath upstairs. With a total of 5 bedrooms there’s room for extended family, for guests, for whatever you desire.

From the screened porch in back you can enjoy the marsh and water birds who call it home. The old dock is gone but you can add a new one or just put it off the bank and explore the neighborhood from the water. A 166 SF playhouse in front will be popular with the younger crowd and you can observe the action from the sun porch. Located in a welcoming North City Neighborhood known for its hospitality, it’s easy to make friends and you’ll feel at home right away.  October block party is coming up!
