Precious - Preserved - Priceless. Welcome to a property that is not only thoughtfully restored and updated, but cherished. Upon entry, one is immediately charmed by the rich and retained period detail, from built-in bench seating and the serpentine staircase to high ceilings and original wavy-glass windows. The owner is both a preservationist and perfectionist, a rare and wonderful combination. The result is a master work of old and new. The gourmet kitchen is a chef's dream, and the baths are spa worthy. The systems and infrastructure have been comprehensively updated for ease of use, efficiency, low cost of ownership, and limited maintenance. 3,000sf+, 4-5 bedroom, 2 fireplaces, 1.5 baths, formal and informal living / family rooms, bonus rooms ideal for office or overflow, lovely porches, sun-filled deck, two driveways with curb-cuts, expansive 1/3+ acre corner lot with wonderful gardens and lots of room for that garage or carriage house. It's easy to imagine snowy winter days with kicked-off, half-laced boots discarded on the front porch, and sitting by a warm fire with hot cocoa in hand. Warm summer nights, net in hand, racing through the gardens in hot pursuit of fireflies. Crisp fall evenings, wine in hand and warm wool blankets for a cozy catch up on the upper covered porch. The return from the nursery on a warm spring day, packets in hand, seedlings started, and the dream of blossoms, berries, and abundant beds. Lace up the running shoes for a jog around Back Cove Trail or an adventure walk through Baxter Woods and Evergreen Cemetery. Pop out the door and into the grocery stores, galleries, shops, and restaurants in and around Woodfords Corner and Deering Center. And when staying in, this home will take you to a place where dreams live, and life is ever so much better. Welcome home.
