The classic Tudor. There are not enough of this distinguished residential style to go around. Its lines and architectural details compare to none and they simply have a way of standing out among the crowd in any neighborhood. This lovely 82 year-old property on Orchard St. next to Stone Estates lives up to its reputation both inside and out. Potential homebuyers are almost guaranteed not be disappointed.
Many of its prominent period details have been preserved throughout the ten rooms in this home providing eye-catching glimpses into its rich historical roots. The first floor consists of a gracious 24 x 11 square foot living room with an exposed natural beamed ceiling and a brick fireplace and a charming 13 x 12 square foot formal dining area. This level also offers a lovely kitchen with a casual dining nook nestled within a bay of three windows and a 16 x 9 square foot inviting sunroom and screened-in porch.
The second level includes an impressive 19 x 12 square foot master suite with a full private bath and two additional bedrooms with charming alcoves. This story also contains a 9 x 8 square foot study and a full family bath. The third floor expands this home's living options with a mini suite of a 13 x 12 square foot bedroom and an inviting 12 x 12 square foot sitting room. Finally, the basement is an ideal recreation site with a 23 x 21 square foot semi-finished playroom (not included in the listed square footage).
This beautiful property is located in the picturesque neighborhood in the Burbank School district, but again, it's the character and specialty of this home that earned its role as the Showcase of the Week.
