This charming Victorian home has tons of history! Built in 1893, it was affectionately known as “Daughter #3” because the original owner built this home and its two identical southern neighbors for his three daughters. Over the years, the home has been lovingly remodeled inside and out with the addition of a bright stucco exterior, front porch and back sunroom, sprinkler system, new roof and updated electrical panel.
A gracious entry foyer provides a convenient space to greet visitors and hang coats before welcoming them into the rest of the home. The living room features a wood burning fireplace with original oak mantel and original ceramic tile hearth and surround.
Between the living room and formal dining room are antique double pocket doors which were once common to Victorian homes but are difficult to find today. A lovely wall of built-ins provides storage for the dining room and new hardwood floors brighten the space.
The kitchen has an open floor plan with a sunny, southern facing window and bright white cabinets. A gorgeous, exposed brick wall and original white wainscoting provide historic charm to the room, while the remodeled granite counter tops, a double oven, tile flooring and movable storage/prep island provide the modern conveniences.
The master bedroom is located upstairs and has a spacious sitting area with great morning light. Two additional bedrooms upstairs would be perfect for kids! The center hallway between the upstairs bedrooms is brightened by beautiful clerestory glass above each doorway.
A fourth conforming bedroom with hardwood flooring, located on the main level, could also serve as a great office or study. A full bathroom with a restored antique claw foot tub (dating back to 1911) and original wainscoting is upstairs and a three quarter bath with newer tile flooring is on the main level.
This lovely home is ideally located on a quiet Washington Park street. Take a short jog to the activity of Wash Park or stroll around the corner to grab a cup of coffee and gourmet pastry at Buffalo Doughboy Bakery. The front yard is home to a rare black walnut tree that provides tons of nuts. The fully fenced back yard has a beautiful plum tree that yields over a bushel of fruit a year and the back deck features a trellis covered with white Niagara and Concord grape vines that offer delicious fruit, shade and ambiance. In addition, the owner has created a spacious, organic urban vegetable garden positioned south of the brick two car garage for plenty of sunshine.
