Sun drenched prime corner in the heart of Old Town! When you first enter this inviting, custom designed home, you will be overcome with sunlight. Windows, windows, windows abound. Historically certified and built in 1888, the home has been completely renovated from top to bottom, while maintaining its original vintage charm. Restored ceiling medallions and gorgeous mouldings are just a few of its impressively preserved features. Uncommonly wonderful space for living and entertaining, the main level features a spacious living room with two window exposures and adorned with an art deco fireplace, with custom wood carvings and tile surround. Large dining room with comfortable room for seating for 8 people features another incredible fireplace. The adjacent kitchen is adorned with an artist's custom designed wood cabinetry, granite countertops, a breakfast bar, and access to a shared deck! The custom mahogany staircase leads to the second level, where three nicely sized bedrooms, two that can accommodate king sized beds, a calming full bath, and a spacious laundry center with side-by-side laundry can be found. The primary suite comprises the entire top level, with a 25' vaulted ceiling, large ensuite bath, and walk-in closet. There is amazing space for separate seating and office areas as well. The lower level features the home's fifth bedroom, full bath, and full kitchen with private street access from Wells Street, making for the perfect in-law, au-pair suite, or Airbnb. Truly the best Old Town Locale, steps to some of the best well known and award-winning restaurants, fabulous entertaining and shopping.
