Everyone knows this house. That it impresses others does not impress you. You are more attuned to the soul of this landmark two story Spanish located in the desirable Rossmoyne.
Stress falls away as soon as you enter the shaded courtyard. The formal entry sets the tone with magnesite staircase and hardwood floors with subtle inlay detail. Intelligent conversation is had in the glorious Living Room with wood beamed ceiling, arched window and double french doors to the courtyard.
But the crowd always gathers in the nearly-new-but-looks-vintage cook’s kitchen with center island. Perhaps the door leading to the perfectly designed backyard is the reason. The kids are frolicking in the sparkling pool and a little one scurries to the remodeled bath and dressing room located just off the pool and adjacent to the downstairs bedroom/den.
Upstairs there are three more bedrooms, including two preserved vintage baths featuring Washington cast iron tubs and rare waterlily tile liners. Modern features include dual zone heat and air, copper pipe, foundation bolt and sheer wall bracing. Electric wires, main roof, main sewer line, pool pump, gutters, and chimney are all recently replaced.
