A storybook home with a rich history, this is the sort of property that doesn't come on the market everyday. One of the first houses in the neighborhood, it was built in 1893 by a stone mason, explaining why it is one of only a few houses on the street constructed of brick and stone and the only one featuring sandstone for the exterior front cladding. A one-of-a-kind property, it beautifully combines traditional features with modern upgrades. Beyond the charming front porch that leads to a rare, enclosed vestibule, an original wood and glass door opens into a generously sized, light-filled living space with 9 ft ceilings, original crown mouldings, wood floors, and large arched windows. The modern kitchen pays homage to the home's past with exposed brick and a tin ceiling, and includes a passthrough to a cozy addition, which could serve as an office or a coveted main floor family room. The addition's reclaimed wood floors are sure to please preservationists while modernists will appreciate the addition's custom built-ins with recessed LED lighting. Upstairs the storybook continues with vaulted ceilings in the primary suite, accented by exposed stone and brick, wood floors, and another arched window. A true sanctuary, the bathroom boasts a clawfoot tub, separate shower, and classic finishes. With an exposed brick and wood shelf gallery wall, the second bedroom completes the tour of one-of-a-kind rooms found throughout the home. The property is in a pocket of Leslieville dubbed #Gerrones, steps from restaurants, shops, and bars that truly embrace East Side Pride. Lovingly cared for over the years, this special home is ready for its next owner to become the steward of its delightful combination of the traditional and the contemporary. (id:58072)
