Description:

There are bungalows and then there’s 69 Valencia Street – an irresistible brick gem on a restored brick street beckoning you to call her home. Don’t be fooled by first impressions, it may look cozy from the sidewalk but it’s a full-grown 1 1/2 story with over 2,300SF of generous rooms replete with original detail and custom touches. A major restoration in the mid 2000s was executed by perfectionistas who knew their way around an antique residence and lavished her with artisanal craftsmanship.

A front terrace is hidden from view by the green hedge so you can sip a coffee or a cocktail without being spotted! The front door opens directly into the living room where Venetian plaster walls present beautifully against gleaming heart pine floors and a gas fireplace patiently waits for cool weather. Built-ins flank the dining room entry where 3 walls of multi-paned windows invite the sunlight in. Center hall opens to 1st bedroom with a wall of closets brilliantly disguised by custom woodwork. Across the hall a very generous kitchen is waiting for someone serious to take charge.

A medley of original pine cabinets fuse seamlessly with cabinets built by the New England carpenter whose talent is evident in almost every room. 2nd bedroom opens to both the wood-paneled sunroom and the private deck. Sunroom leads to the backyard and detached 2-car garage. Japanese-inspired hall bath serves 1st floor bedrooms and day guests. The flex room can be anything you want and need while the stairway leads to treetop master nest. Media equipment can be stowed in the cabinetry atop the stairs in the sitting room. Master bath has separate shower and soaking tub under a window so you can stargaze while you bathe. Beams in the vaulted bedroom ceiling add a lofty feel to this peaceful space where closets and drawers are hidden into the walls.

Words and photos don’t do justice to this sweet spot so come see it in person. Walking distance to everything fun and delicious and zoning allows Airbnb.
