Description

Rare, quintessential McKay-built stunner describes this meticulously maintained home that is in like-new condition thanks to the current homeowners who have been great stewards of this vintage property for the past 38 years. One of McKay's most unique and well-appointed homes, this entire property feels quite special. Upon approaching the home outside, the curb appeal is striking. First, the unique design of the gambrel roof; next, the rich crimson color that gives the house so much personality; then, the carefully sculpted and well-planned perennial landscape gardens that don't present too much of a maintenance challenge for the positive, artful impact they lend to the property. The inside feels even more special with robust paneled archways between rooms; entablature-style crown molding; oversized windows and trim; 9’ ceilings; an immense amount of built-ins so beloved from this art deco architectural era; custom, in-set kitchen cabinetry done in classic white with a tasteful and vintage appropriate bead board backsplash; a Juliet balcony off the second floor hallway that overlooks the well-manicured back yard; hardwood floors that look new despite never having been refinished in the 38 years the current homeowners have enjoyed living here. To continue the theme of rare finds, this home has a bath on every floor and an en suite bath off of every bedroom, each with museum quality original features. The primary bedroom features multiple closets, including a walk-in closet as well as an en suite bath with not only a soaking bathtub, but a walk-in shower. The lower level has a poured, modern foundation with a sump pump; ample storage; a full bath with shower; the second fireplace; wet bar; and a Murphy bed that easily pulls down from the knotty pine paneled wall to create a guest space. With this much to offer at this price, this one won’t last long! Come see this home in person while you still can! This one is even more impressive in person than in the pictures.
