Gracious, stately Highlands Queen Anne Victorian, adorned by gorgeous detail and gleaming hardwood, offers all the right spaces and her own carriage house too. With her commanding presence, set back from the street and nestled amidst homes of similar architecture, this beauty presents herself as a showpiece and you will not be disappointed by her expansive first floor living spaces. The enclosed front porch has been converted into a sitting room and office making fabulous use of this area and opens to the front reception foyer boasting a decorative fireplace, detailed balustrade and a bay. The sun-kissed living room and dining room were built on a grand scale with beam and wood ceilings, gorgeous natural woodwork, oversize windows and pocket doors. The living room hosts a wood burning fireplace with Chelsea tile and the dining room hosts a built-in china cabinet. The renovated eat-in kitchen, crafted by Pegasus Design, a renowned local design and build firm, boasts granite counters, tumbled tile backsplash, cherry cabinetry and a dining peninsula, with the half bath which includes laundry, as well as a rear mudroom adjoining. The second level holds generous bedrooms, the master bedroom with four closets, full bath and sitting area, and the third level holds a fourth bedroom with turret space, an unheated office and a large storage room just begging you to create a media or hobby room, study or another bedroom. The three story carriage house holds a one car garage on the lower level on Orris Street and the upper area offers two-levels of storage, or perhaps a studio space. The back patio is surrounded by perennials, your own oasis. This belle is sited in this envied Highlands nook, convenient to the Roosevelt School, secondary school complex, Highlands and Cedar Park train and amenities, as well as the Fells and Melrose’s bustling downtown shops, restaurants and cultural activities. Enjoy the best of updated spaces suited to meet the needs of today while paying homage to the heritage of the 19th century roots of Melrose, all in a neighborhood convenient to the train, downtown, the Fells and more!
