This house is a mirage! It is so much larger than it appears from the outside! Over 3,120 square feet of thorough and thoughtful living space plus 1,500 square feet of unfinished two level basement space. The renovations are balanced by contemporary design at this exceptionally spacious Braddock Heights Cape Cod. Many practical and convenient amenities meet modern household needs and make home maintenance a breeze. Nothing has been overlooked in the details of this home. Solid wood doors, with solid brass plates and crystal knobs, are true to the 1940s era Cape Cod build. Through the living room with a gas fireplace and past the formal dining room, a chef's paradise awaits in the gourmet kitchen where professional grade culinary is possible at home. Entertain guests at the one-of-a-kind 8~ center island with seating for four and featuring a prep sink, disposal, and cabinet space. KraftMaid solid wood cabinets above and full-extension drawers, for easy access to kitchen utensils, form an 'L' around the island. The kitchen opens to the family room where French doors lead to the private patio, surrounded by thoughtful landscaping and lined with flowering Camellias. The patio adjoins the oversized two car garage. Two first floor bedrooms and a full bath offer versatile space, ideal for a private in-law suite. Upstairs, a spacious master suite beckons you to enjoy a sound night of sleep. The tray ceiling adds dimension. Two exceptionally deep wall closets and a walk-in closet offer one hundred-plus square feet of storage. A luxurious master bath provides the perfect space to unwind with a jacuzzi soaking tub for two and separate tiled shower with a bench, two shower heads, and four body jets. The fourth and fifth bedrooms are also on the second floor with a third full bath finished with a refinished original claw foot tub and true-to-period fixtures, flooring, and tile. The 1,500 square foot two level basement is as spacious as the main level and offers the potential for a sixth bedroom, an expansion of the half bath into a fourth full bath, and additional recreation space. All windows have been upgraded to Anderson 400. The two sets of exterior French doors are also Andersen. A two-stage water filtration system purifies drinking water. A dual zone, high-efficiency HVAC and two gas hot water heaters allow temperature control and unlimited hot water. A separate natural gas generator can power the home and support the two basement sump pumps for peace of mind. A network wall is wired for all possible media configurations.
