A Feast for your eyes! This stunning Queen Anne inspired home was brought back to her glory in a two-year renovation that didn~t miss even the smallest of details. With the guidance of noted architect Steven Ware, this Victorian era home was painstakingly transformed from a Plain Jane to an exquisite Painted Lady. Strikingly beautiful, it~s not unlikely to find a local artist on the sidewalk creating a painting of this gem and its manicured landscape. Enter by way of the grand sandstone staircase to the inviting and colorful front porch enclosed by a custom wood-turned spindle railing system, notice the detail in the beadboard ceiling and exposed rafters, standing seam metal roof, as well as elaborate porch overhang and curlicue corbels. The vestibule leads to the foyer with rebuilt turned staircase and gleaming hardwood floors. Original floors were restored where possible, hardwood extends throughout the home. The living room opens to a fireside library both with large windows and your introduction to the gorgeous custom millwork fabricated with custom profiles to replicate period woodwork throughout the home. All the charm of a bygone era but with new Pella windows throughout. The center island kitchen offers all 21st century conveniences with quartz countertops, classic white cabinetry, stainless appliances yet has the charm of a vintage kitchen. A large laundry room was added in the renovation. There is also a full bath on the first level and a formal dining room with French doors that lead to the alluring back patio. With the backdrop of the renovated 2 car garage, aesthetically authentic to the era, fencing, manicured planting beds and stone walls, the patio is the perfect spot for entertaining or just relaxing. The Master Bedroom suite addition on the second level is spacious and luxurious. There are 2 closets and a walk-in closet, a sitting room, and ensuite bath. Marble abounds in the spectacular master bath, with a vaulted ceiling, diamond window, 2 separate vanities, a claw foot tub, and a stall shower in its own room. There are two more bedrooms and a hall bath on the second level. Climb the stairs to the third level, and you~ll find a built- in computer desk area and additional storage areas that lead to an expansive vaulted-ceiling 4th bedroom with walk-in closet. The HVAC system in this home was converted from oil to natural gas, and the radiators were removed and replaced with cast iron convectors for hot water baseboard heat. Most first level areas have radiant heat. High velocity air conditioning was installed to the second and third levels. The second garage addition was constructed, and a new high-pitched roof was added to accommodate another diamond window. No expense was spared in this renovation, from the costly diamond windows to the rafter tails, spindle system and gingerbread. All renovation and addition plans were approved by the Historic & Architectural Review Board of Wayne. Located in the sought-after South Wayne Historic District on fabulous Bloomingdale Avenue, you will have a 7-minute walk to the center of town, one of the most popular on the Main Line for shopping, dining and entertainment. Walk to the R5 commuter train to Philadelphia, or connect to all major highways (476, 202, 76) in minutes. Radnor School District. Move-in ready and truly a pleasure to show, an artistic treasure to own!
