HISTORIC ELEGANCE -This stately 1905 Home is an excellent example of an early Basse Brothers block style house which is considered to be a locally famous style of architecture. This fine property had a complete and thorough restoration in 2014, adding all modern conveniences of today while staying true to its original charm and feel. Offering 2642 ft.² including 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths. The moment you walk in the front door you’ll notice the attention to detail which stays true to the era, from the beautiful wood floors, functioning transom windows, period lighting, and original pressed tin ceilings. The awesome kitchen features custom cabinetry with tons of storage, 5 burner Thermador gas cook top, double ovens and stunning quartz counter tops along with a cozy breakfast area. The formal dining room is sure to impress with original builtin china hutch and antique Victorian era chandelier from Argentina. The living room boasts a fabulous masonry fireplace with gas logs and a tile surround custom-made by Earthsong. There is also a great study downstairs which easily doubles as an additional bedroom with the use of a pullout sofa. The upstairs master bedroom is truly lovely, from the pressed tin ceilings to the corner fireplace complete with antique mantle which was reclaimed from an old home in New Orleans. There is also a door leading from the master bedroom to a terrific screened in porch which is a great spot to sit and relax. The master bath is equally impressive with his and her sinks, huge walk-in shower with no threshold along with a master closet which offers approximately 180 ft.² and includes tons of storage along with washer and dryer connections. The second upstairs bedroom is equally well appointed with its own private bath. Meanwhile, the third bedroom is currently used as a library with a great built-in display bookcase with sliding glass doors. Both of these bedrooms also have access to a balcony and outside stairway.
PROFESSIONAL REMODEL – in 2014 by locally renowned builder John Akin. This is not just a remodel where you repaint and add some new light fixtures, rather this property was taken down to the studs as it were. Meaning there is completely new wiring throughout the house including a new breaker box, light and dimer switches etc… All of the plumbing was also completely replace all the way to the street. New Standing Seam metal roof was installed. The even took out all the old windows, refurbished them and rehung them with new ropes . So you get that old world feel but with everything functional. The thick masonry walls and the completely foam insulated attic keep the energy usage amazingly low! It is really like buying a brand new, 113 year old house !
OUTSIDE – This gorgeous home sits on a huge 120 x140 foot lot with big mature trees offering lots of shade as well as some fabulous landscaping. Just off the back door is a huge deck area great for entertaining or just having your morning coffee or evening beverage. You will enjoy lots of quiet afternoons listening to the gentle trickle of water from the outside water feature which include two small waterfalls feeding into a lily pond. There is also the old original cook shed which is now used for storage and gardening. The home is located just 2 1/2 short blocks north of Main Street which makes it easily within walking distance, however Sycamore is only two blocks long in itself which makes the traffic very light. This results in a peaceful, quiet setting considering how close to the Main St you are!
THERE’S MORE! In addition to all this, the property also features a spacious two-car garage along with a one car carport big enough to park a boat or another toy. Meanwhile above the garage you’ll find a great 847 square-foot workshop. Currently used for woodworking, this great area is heated and cooled via a mini split system and has its own bathroom with shower. It’s completely foam insulated making it a very comfortable space. The shop is mostly unfinished and works very well as a shop but with a little work could be easily converted into a guest apartment or short term rental. It’s really hard to put into words the quality of the restoration and the attention to detail that went into this home, you really do have to see this one in person!
