The asymmetrical façade of this handsome Ashbury Heights residence is a blend of architectural styles, primarily borrowing Tudor elements of old brickwork, brown shingles and plaster work framed by half timbers. The verticality of its four stories is softened by well-placed windows and a prominent balcony with carved beam supports. Verdant ivy and tall trees complement the brickwork of the driveway and steps leading to the front porch.
The gracious ENTRY FOYER introduces the interior architectural details of the home, including tall ceilings, crown and base moldings, period lighting and beautiful hardwood floors. Leaded art glass inset in the front door and side lights allow natural light to brighten the entry way.
The well-proportioned LIVING ROOM features a coved ceiling, period fireplace flanked by built-in bookcases and bay window looking out to the tree-lined street. The formal DINING ROOM comfortably seats a large dinner party.
The light-filled modern KITCHEN enjoys access to a large walk-out deck
and staircase to the manicured EAST GARDEN with pond and serpentine terracing.
