Description

The Hayden House designed by architect William K. Johnston in 1893 sits prominently on an elevated 75 X 193 lot. The current owners have restored, updated and expanded the house during their tenure. Because of their sensitive restoration the house was granted historic landmark status in 2017. The stunning, rebuilt wraparound porch greets you and welcomes you into the grand foyer with a working FP, turret sitting area and 1/2 bath. Off this elegant entrance, a traditional double living room allows for the placement of a piano, multiple sitting areas and another working fireplace. This room opens to the glassed-in portion of the wraparound porch which serves as a sunroom for many months of the year. The dining room is gracious in size and opens into the versatile yet formal butler's pantry before you enter the kitchen. The kitchen is a joy for any creative cook and was updated with creamy white, handcrafted cabinetry and top quality appliances. The kitchen opens directly to the newer family room. During construction the sellers added a full bath to this space. Both rooms enjoy expansive views of the large fenced-in backyard. There is a huge deck off the family room that is great for entertaining. The sellers also removed the old garage and built a custom, 4 car garage with an additional single spot for guest parking. Two staircases to the 2nd floor where you will find a primary bedroom and bath and 3 additional ample bedrooms, one with an original decorative fireplace. There is also a large hall bath with a garden tub. The 3rd floor is massive and has areas for a bedroom, office, media room and fun turret room, there is also a full bath on this floor. This floor is truly flex space. The basement has teriffice ceiling height, a summer kitchen, rec room, workout room, bedroom, full bath, laundry and storage too. This house has style, location and excellent condition all wrapped up in one beautiful package.
