Description:

Leave the fast pace behind and enter a world where time literally slows down so you can catch your breath and immerse yourself in an historic neighborhood which has been delighting residents for over a century. On a street lined with some of our finest bungalows, 290 St George St proudly presents with singular detail and a host of splendid original elements from 1900. 2016 saw the addition of a detached 1,000SF cottage serving as an art studio with full bath – it’s an easy transition to guest quarters.

Enjoying just over a 1/4 acre, the property runs from St George to Cordova St on Lake Maria Sanchez and offers a deep front yard with ample area in back. A welcoming front porch beckons you closer so let’s begin your exploration. Wide sunlit foyer opens to living room on the left. This gathering room features coffered ceiling, built-in bookcases, a fireplace waiting for cooler evening and 4 tall windows for soft natural light. A thing of beauty, the dining room is clad in soft grey with 3/4 wainscot walls topped by a plate rail and the sunshine through vintage diamond-paned windows throws rainbow prisms around the room. Comfortably host everyone you love here. Adjacent eat-in kitchen is intelligently laid out for 2 or more to work together and it spills out to screened porch where there’s a grilling station with hood and a large area for seating.

2 en-suite bedrooms downstairs will have a waiting list of guests. North bedroom features a wonderful bathroom with modern slipper tub and custom wood vanity. Opening to the sunroom, this becomes a natural suite for extended stays.

Wide stairway with 2 landings leads to the master with generous bedroom, simply lovely bathroom and flex room (think 4th bedroom, office, walk-in closet for 2).

The cottage with wide covered porch faces the lake and is now used as art studio with full bathroom – these secondary “cottages” are highly coveted. Outdoor seating areas are everywhere – pick your spot and begin this new adventure.
