Own a piece of historic Pullman! This 1880s ‘skilled craftsperson’ row house is in one of the most desirable parts of the historic district, across the street from the beautiful Florence Hotel. And at 1,772 square feet, this is one of the bigger homes of its kind in the neighborhood, thanks to a spacious two-story rear addition.
A charming screened porch with jalousie windows, ceiling fan, and motion detector lighting provides a homey place to read, dine, or relax and a sheltered entry to the front of the house. The front hallway features a gallery of track lighting and parquet floors leading to the dining room and to the recently refinished original vintage staircase.
Arched doorways open between the dining and living rooms and the kitchen, creating light and air flow. The arches are echoed in living room wall niches for displaying your favorite pieces of art or treasured memorabilia. The living room also showcases the home’s original fireplace (currently decorative) with original 1880s marble mantel and ornate iron cover. Tall double windows facing west in the living room and east in the dining room provide great light all day and cross breezes in the summer. The eat-in kitchen models a vintage 1950s double sink cabinet with sought-after red linen patterned formica top and chrome trim, as well as a built-in bread box and cutting board. Mid-century vintage stove and refrigerator are included. The kitchen also showcases a mid-century vintage fully functional chrome exterior exhaust fan. The north-facing kitchen windows bring cheery light to many cabinets on the south and east walls that provide room for all your cooking and serving items. You will find even more kitchen storage in the shelf-lined pantry that also hides the interior stairs to the basement.
The first floor bedroom and full bath, part of the rear addition beyond the kitchen, have been recently renovated with new insulation, walls, ceiling fan/light fixture, and ecologically sustainable bamboo flooring in the bedroom, and new plumbing, glass and ceramic tiled walls, and porcelain tiled floors in the bathroom. The bedroom boasts two closets and two large windows looking out to the garden and garage. The bed and bath are separated from the rest of the house by a French door, and are also adjacent to the rear exterior door, making them perfect for a master suite, home office, or guest quarters. The rear of the house has yet another small broom or linen closet, as well as a mudroom/hallway between the rear exterior door and back door of the house.
The second floor houses three generous bedrooms, more closets, and another full bath. Windows facing all four directions allow for great light and cross breezes. A former nursery adjacent to the master bedroom is now being used as a walk-in closet, complete with vintage (possibly 1930s) built-ins. The front bedroom has its own closet as well as new sound-insulating walls and eco- and health-friendly Marmoleum floors (natural and durable linoleum layered over insulating cork). The rear bedroom has newer windows, new sound-insulating walls and ceiling (it was used as a home music studio), a good-sized closet, and vintage flooring in an outstanding mid-century modern harlequin pattern. The middle bedroom boats a lovely dormered window, neutral Berber carpeting, and a closet with hanging rod and shelves. The upstairs hallway includes the original wood flooring and staircase balustrade, skylight, hall window, another large closet (storage galore!), and two well-lit niches each big enough to house a computer desk or comfy oversized chair for a reading nook. The upstairs full bath displays a delightful mid-century modern confetti print floor.
The basement, accessible by interior stairs, also has stairs to the rear yard. Washer and dryer in the basement laundry room can be included or not as you prefer. Additional crawlspace storage under the front porch and rear addition could also be converted to a wine cellar or sheltered home for pampered outdoor pets. The two-car garage is newer and has a recently serviced automatic garage door opener.
Recent building upgrades including plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and roof work. (See MLS additional info tab for list.) The boiler has been maintained in excellent condition, and the water heater is only a few years old. Note that tax for 2016 was reassessed lower at $1,102, already paid.
