With its crisp white wrap around deck and balcony, tidy black shutters and deep red scroll work screen door, 2808 Rothesay Road is a home that catches your eye as you drive down picturesque Rothesay Road. Set back from the street, this beautiful circa 1928 four-bedroom home has curb appeal aplenty, but that's not all. The 82-year-old home is a perfect blend of classic character, quality workmanship and modern luxury and convenience.
This picture-perfect 2312-square-foot home is set on 1.87 acres of mature, landscaped and wooded property with a winding paved driveway that leads to the back of the house where you'll find a detached, insulated and heated 26 x 30 two-car garage with a loft.
Inside, the home is sure to impress. The grand foyer is reminiscent of days gone by with hardwood flooring, elegant panel wainscoting, a beautiful hardwood staircase, a ceiling medallion and chandelier. A pretty stained glass window, next to the solid wood door with old-fashioned door bell, brings natural light to this classic foyer.
To the right find a huge formal living room with more hardwood flooring, deep baseboards, crown moulding, and two large picture windows. Transom windows flank the wood burning fireplace with a wood surround and brick hearth. This room is made for entertaining!
Great dinner parties will begin across the foyer in the formal dining room. Another large space, the dining room boasts more hardwood flooring, deep baseboards, plate rail, huge windows, including a walk-out bay window, an impressive chandelier, and double French doors. Dinner guests will love dining in such an elegant room.
Handy to the dining room, through those double French doors, find a renovated kitchen with plenty of custom cherry cabinetry, gleaming black granite countertops, and ceramic tile. This large, bright and sunny room has a center island and breakfast bar topped with more black granite. Quality stainless steel appliances are included in the sale (fridge, stove, dishwasher and microwave) . A mudroom entrance from the back of the home is handy to the kitchen.
Also handy to the kitchen, find a lovely powder room with hardwood flooring, and a dresser style vanity with a marble top.
Climb the grand staircase to an equally impressive second floor. Here sunlight floods in through large windows. Off the main foyer, find a spacious den/office or reading area. There is an updated 3-piece bathroom with marble tile on the floor and surrounding the tub, plus an attractive modern vanity. Four bedrooms make up the rest of the second floor. All very nice-sized bedrooms have hardwood flooring, closet space, and large windows.
A staircase from this floor leads to an insulated attic, ideal for storage or a potential children's playroom.
Unlike most home's of its day, the basement of this home is finished. Downstairs, find a large newly carpeted rec room with a built-in bar, wainscoting, and attractive lighting. There's a separate games room or den, as well as a utility/workshop room and a 3-piece bathroom with ceramic tile, a large stand-up shower and pedestal sink. You'll also find the laundry room (LG TROMM front-load washer and dryer included!) with ceramic tile and sink.
This beautifully maintained and updated home, on lovely mature grounds, is move-in ready. Experience the grandeur of 1928 and the convenience and luxury of today.
