Property Description

Your opportunity to own a Stratton Hammon beauty has arrived. Located on a lovely double lot, the home features a wonderful brick courtyard entry. This rare offering, having had only 3 owners since its commission in 1947, is located on Summit Ave., a Highlands hidden treasure street off Eastern Parkway. Step inside to a gracious horizontal foyer with marble floors, a perfect gallery leading you to the two sides of this stunning home. To the left is the living room with wood burning fireplace, a bright, inviting sunroom with brick floor, and a formal dining room - with fabulous views through a curved wall of windows of the large, flat, private backyard with luscious landscaping and a charming bricked lily pond/rose garden. The original kitchen with stainless and marble counters, and breakfast area, provides a spacious footprint for the serious cook, and it leads into the marvelous, vaulted family room with wood burning fireplace. The first-floor primary bedroom, with another wood burning fireplace, this one adorned with original Dutch tiles, also includes a large walk-in closet. The primary bath, with heated floor, is designed so it can double to create a separate guest half bath. A mudroom/office area and laundry room complete the main floor. Upstairs are two bedrooms, each with huge walk-in closets, and one original full bath. Current owner added hardwood floors on the main level and a new HVAC system upstairs, replacing the original house system. (New owner can complete ductwork coverings and restoration of second floor bedrooms to accommodate their needs). Uniquely, this property offers a four-car garage, one port used as a workshop, and a finished upstairs space, inspiring expansion potential for the new owner. The garage is accessed from the mudroom through a sweet breezeway. A wrought iron gate leads to a back garden area. Special tree features include a Japanese Dogwood and a Tri-colored Beech. Original Stratton Hammon blueprints and drawings are available for the new owner.
