Grand charm and elegant beauty are the words to describe this marvelous home, basking in the historic town of Kensington and situated on one of the most beautiful streets in town. Come experience the lush gardens and landscaping, flowering week after week, as they greet you walking up the slate pathway to the home, and bringing old world charm to this magnificently built and designed home. A wraparound porch with a swing might just bring you back to your childhood days, and the fragrant scent of the flowers will carry you away from the cares of the day. As you enter, a spacious parlor with a wood-burning fireplace cheerfully greets you. High ceilings, beautiful hardwood floors, lovely wood moldings and blown-glass windows create a magical charm as sunlight passes through them onto plaster walls, creating such warmth in these rooms, you can only appreciate it by experiencing it. Through pocket doors to the dining room you look out onto the deck, and I think you'll agree, it's more beauty than one can handle! A marvelous etched glass pocket door separates the dining room and the kitchen. The eat-in kitchen is exquisitely renovated. The design opens the kitchen to the family room (with a wood-burning fireplace) providing a lovely, light-filled open space to enjoy. With glass front cabinets, built-ins, granite counter-tops, stainless steel appliances, pantry, and fully equipped with modern appliances, the kitchen is just perfect! Going upstairs, the staircase is a striking example of the sturdy and fine craftsmanship of the era in which this home was built. On the second level, there are three bedrooms and two full baths in all. The master bedroom, complete with custom built-ins, has two closets and an associated bathroom that has been recently beautifully renovated. Two more nice-size bedrooms and a second bathroom complete the second level. The third level sports a big open bedroom that could alternately be used as an artist studio, office or even a craft space. The space is charming and might also be used as a perfect place to just hideaway and relax ~ perhaps a yoga room! Outside, the gardens are magnificently designed. Truly a master gardener was at work during their creation furnishing you gorgeous plants to admire all the time. The colors and beauty these gardens bring to this home is splendiferous, and an irrigation system takes all the hard work out of keeping everything green! There is a right to use jointly with the neighbor the garage located on the neighbor's property. There is also a right to use the driveway for ingress and egress to and from the garage. Conveniently located to all major routes, shopping, restaurants, MARC train and of course, located in the beautiful historic town of Kensington!
