Craftsman Style is an understatement. Craftsman Built is more like it! Outstanding detail inside and out. The level of materials are of the highest magnitude and are not just high end but synthesize together in perfect harmony. Think of your favorite melodies and living that everyday! The invite begins as you roll up the smooth asphalt driveway that leads to a clean front entry white sidewalk. Pass the two stone pillar supports that match nicely with the stone fireplace exterior. The tapered dual columns and covered A-frame portico sets the craftsman's stage... and we have not even walked in yet. Step up onto the Pennsylvania Blue Stone portico landing and saunter through the theme appropriate 6 lite craftsman front door. Walk in to an arched vestibule and your gaze is momentarily unmanageable! Your eyes do not know where to first! What do you see when you see everything beautiful, all at the same time! Everyone see's something different at first, but what is the same, is how everyone feels! Your brain just knows that your somewhere special. Look to the left and there's an original 15 lite French Door that leads to another covered porch, look to the right and feel the warmth literally and figuratively from the classic stone fireplace with fireplace insert with (lovely mantle cap and stone hearth). Look through the second arch and the sightline continues all the way into the dining area and kitchen. These stimulate the macro senses. Then there's the detail. Gorgeous engineered hardwood ties the public areas together, while the craftsman correct thick baseboard moldings with exquisite accompanying window and door trim work continuing to inspire. If the living room is the melody, then the dining area and kitchen is the chorus. Your eye is immediately drawn to the kitchen. Texture upon texture makes falling in love easy. The ceramic wood-grained plank kitchen floor provides the base for your raised panel cabinetry with soft-touch drawer and blacksmith custom hardware. Every great song has a great hook. Here it's the kitchen counter tops. You must see it to believe it, personally, I would buy this house just for this piece of granite! There's something about the wasabi green base color with gold and silver flecks mixed with curved rust veining... it's reminiscent of a modern artist randomly flinging paint on a canvas that is instant dopamine every time you see it! The only difference is... there was no human involved. It's all from mother earth! Call it wasabi or call it pistachio, you can't go wrong either way, these blend perfectly with the high-end stainless steel appliances and fixtures. These include a Bosch dishwasher, Samsung refrigerator, Frigidaire natural gas range, GE microwave, undermount stainless steel sink, and angled goose-neck faucet. For extra credit lets include the glass tile backsplash, recessed lights, and crackled amber pendants. The greatest songs have multiple hooks and this home has more to give. The down stairs full bathroom is Architectural Digest worthy. It's not the biggest full bath but is it may be the finest. Again, the pattern repeats itself. A representation of texture unmatched. Where to look first? Is it the dual arched faucet? Maybe its the emerald green sink vessel? How about the granite countertop, the furniture grade vanity, tempered glass frameless shower enclosure? Is it the 5 different types of custom tile, all in different sizes and patterns? How about the bead board ceiling? No, it must be the etched lights. Of course it has to be the raised 5 panel solid core fir door. The result is not contrived... its just Wow! There's two bedrooms down and two bedrooms up (4 bedrooms total) all good sized. The master is large and elegant with plenty of morning and afternoon light. The master showcases accordion radiators, these are sprinkled throughout the house, and everyone knows that the radiator and boiler system is still the best and most durable type of heating.
