Other Arts & Crafts features include leaded glass, egg and dart detailing, crown moldings, baseboard trim plus quarter-sawn oak flooring throughout. This is a home not only to be seen but to be experienced! With amazing attention to detail, the current long-time owner has added to the original home with a 3-story addition replicating many of the vintage details of the original, creating a truly seamless extension with 21st century amenities. The large family room with surround sound for a 'theater' experience and a gas fireplace adjoins the open kitchen with granite tops and high-end stainless appliances.

The finished basement provides even more living space perfect for a 2nd home office, media room, or game room with an 'au pair suite' - the 5th bedroom and a 4th full bath - plus storage space galore. The mechanical systems boast the same attention to detail as the rest of the home. The basement has a waterproofed foundation and overhead sewers. A commercial, rapid recovery 75 gal hot water heater. All new plumbing and all new electric throughout. Sitting on an oversized lot measuring 32x164, this property provides a large, fenced backyard.
