This property is no longer available to rent or to buy. This description is from January 08, 2022
One of the grandest homes on Lake Avenue is available now. This fabulous home has been lovingly updated top to bottom while retaining its turn of the century charm. Enter through the front foyer and soak up the soaring ceilings, intricate carving of the open stairwell and the stained-glass windows. Walk down the hall to two living rooms with pocket doors and a dining room that will accommodate the largest table. The showstopper of the main floor is the gorgeous kitchen with a center piece island, granite counters, full wall of pantry cabinets and high-end appliances including a Kitchen Aid built-in fridge and GE Cafe series induction range. Rounding out the main level is a beautiful full bath with dual vanity and heated floor. Step out the back door to a large deck overlooking the shaded backyard and garden area. There is also a convenient storage shed for your garden tools. On the upper level of the home are 4 bedrooms and a second full bath with custom tile, heated floor and a large linen closet. There are also stairs leading to the attic space which is wide open and perfect for possible expansion space. In the basement you will find the mechanicals, water softener and filtration systems, laundry room, abundant storage and new electrical service. Get to know your neighbors or relax with a book on the covered front porch. All this is in an excellent location just 2 blocks to the lake trail and 3 blocks to downtown. This home is in the 1st year of a 5 year partial tax abatement (2021).
