Description

Unique country-style home in coveted N. Wilm.! Appreciate this 1930s-built 4 BRs/2 bath home where earlier-era charm melds with must-have modern amenities. New cedar/ white siding (2020) and pitched roof (2020) exude classic, clean-lined home that sits on zero-thru traffic street, affording privacy and peacefulness, yet is minutes from all conveniences. Lush all-around-home landscaping (2020) of mulched beds, thriving shrubs, ornamental trees and blooming flowers provide kaleidoscope of color, while stone walkway leads to 5-brick steps that front picturesque wrap-around 5-white columned, white-railed sprawling farmhouse porch. Combination of rockers and accent bench stake their claim, offering invitation to take in quiet surround! Double-width transom windows stretch across top and triple-width transom windows flank solid wood front door, which grants access to beautiful original hardwood floored front almost-parlor-like room where use of natural wood and oversized windows here and throughout is stunning. Natural wood trim around windows/extra-wide baseboards, exposed radiators and hardwood staircase create rustic warmth. From front room, catch glimpse into adjacent FR where angled FP with wood/red brick composition is in full view. Natural light streams into room, thanks to bump-out double and side windows. Hardwood floors continue, and area rug in natural hues adds layer of subtle color and softness. Comfortable and casual, this right-size FR offers anytime-of-the-day relaxing! Although hardwood floors are seamless to DR, 2-tone decorative-designed wood border announces room~s entrance. Hallmarks of elegance of bay window, ceiling medallion and elaborate bronze chandelier raise the bar of beauty! Tucked off DR is appropriately-positioned windowed butler~s pantry, comprised of tumbled marble ceramic tile floor, ceramic tile backsplash with ceramic glass border in gray/green/tan and succession of cabinets above and below countertop, perfect for stashing extra plates, glassware and serving dishes. 2019-renovated full, 1st-floor bath is eye-catching in new neutral gray tones with gray ceramic tile floor, gray vanity with black granite countertop and dramatic seamless glass shower with diagonal seafoam green tile with black tile surround. Floorplan melds into updated ceramic-tile floored French country kitchen with ornate-trim antique cream cabinets, cream tile backsplash with sage/olive/hunter green ceramic glass tile accent and bullnose finished black granite countertops, all elegant contrast to SS appliances. Step down into mini-mudroom with dual window and ~ glass door to quaint deck/backyard. On 2nd level, natural wood doors change to 5-panel white wood doors along with white trim and baseboards. 2 secondary BRs feature plush Williamsburg-color carpeting, roomy closets and original glass door knobs. 3rd carpeted room is currently used as laundry room with stackable W & D in alcove, but could easily serve as 3rd secondary BR. It~s spacious and sun-filled! Bonus is transom-window-topped door that grants access to 2nd-level porch edged with new black wrought-iron railing, offering bird~s eye view of scenic backyard and lovely neighboring homes. MBR is large and boasts pelican-gray carpeting, dual-width closet and stunning bump-out bay window, providing both extra beauty and square footage. Full B & W retro-tile floor bath is accented with white beadboard-style vanity, ~ tile wall, tub/shower and soothing and serene teal-green paint. Off 2nd-hardwood floor foyer is convenient walk-up, floored attic with 2 mini Palladian windows. Easy-up, easy-down storage! New heat pump (2019). Backyard is lush and level with tree-lined side/back yards, providing utmost privacy especially during warm-weather seasons. Detached 2-car garage with barn-style doors, designed in home~s colors and architectural style, sits at end of driveway and has floored 2nd level. Top-to-bottom, front-to-back, striking home on Simon Rd.!
