A favorite in a city known for its rich architectural diversity, this brick bungalow is irresistible from first glance and delivers beautifully on its promise. Presiding over the newly restored brick street, the first impression is of a cozy charmer, but don’t be fooled because it’s a full-grown 2,363 square foot residence with generous rooms and intelligent floor plan. A thoughtful eye kept watch over the renovations and the results speak for themselves which you will happily discover.

Surrounded by colorful gardens leading up to the house, the terrace is screened by landscaping and offers a sunny spot to plan the day’s adventure. A generous living room waits on the other side of the front door. Large enough for two seating areas flanking the fireplace, the display cabinets were built to suit the style and will show off your treasures nicely. The dining room enjoys diffused light from its two walls of windows and in its previous life was a solarium so the brick walls add a rich texture to the fabric of the space.

Just off the central hallway the first bedroom features a hand-painted border inspired by period wallpaper. A tranquil room with soothing colors and built-in wardrobe created by a New England craftsman. Across the hall a serious kitchen offers ample storage for even the most avid collector of dinnerware. Original pine cabinets with classic black hardware line one entire wall and the upper portion over the workspace. Carefully selected granite and tile complement the custom cabinetry below and your culinary muse will be inspired to great heights here. Under the windows there’s a banquette for casual meals with a cabinet tucked in the corner by the French door leading to decks and patio. It’s a great way to keep appliances handy and out of sight.

The second bedroom enjoys its own sun room overlooking the gardens in three directions. A Zen bathroom is at the end of the hall. In the office a graceful stair leads to the master quarters. The media center is hidden behind wooden doors and this sitting room is the place to enjoy a movie, a book or just a chat. Experience the master bath with its soaking tub, window seat, custom vanity and all the hidden storage. The bedroom has mastered the art of repose and so will you. Closets are built-in so the simplicity of the space will immediately relax you.

A splendid house, the outdoor space is equally so. A deep driveway and garage are a luxury in town – enjoy them. Taste perfection.
