For the ultimate in historic character and modern luxury, move right in to this beautiful and impeccably renovated 1870s brick townhouse, ideally located on a tree-lined street a few blocks in each direction from the vibrant communities of Grove Street and Hamilton Park. Already flooded with natural light through newly restored Marvin floor-to-ceiling windows and copper skylight, this south-facing home also sits on a rare 20-ft wide lot, resulting in an airy openness unique for a home in this area. It features 3 spacious bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, and an enchanting private backyard oasis with rustic outdoor kitchen, storage shed, bluestone patio, and mature plantings. All rooms are in excellent proportion, and each floor's fully windowed bathroom is adorned with marble mosaic tile, glass shower, and marble vanity. The thoughtfully designed kitchen is equipped with ample custom cabinetry, quartzite countertops, Viking stove with XO hood, Fisher-Paykel refrigerator, Miele dishwasher and integrated microwave. The many generous closets throughout the house are stylishly and efficiently designed by California Closets, and a home office nook, also by California Closets, is complete with a built-in desk, bookshelves, cabinets, printer drawer, bonus refrigerator, and window seat for those days when working from home is a little more laid back. While this historic home still retains the character and charm of its original Trinity layout, glass paneled front doors, winding staircase with original newel post, reclaimed and original wide plank floors, and marble fireplace mantels, it has recently undergone a complete transformation which has fully brought it into the twenty first century and then some. In addition to all new mechanical, in-floor radiant heating throughout the bottom level and in all three bathrooms, and two-zone central heat & AC, the home is also wired for all of the modern smart home amenities. Everything in the home, from each of the light switches, to the gas fireplaces, climate control, and smart locks/doorbells, is programmable and controllable using your choice of smart home system (Alexa/Google/SmartThings etc.), and wires have been elegantly tucked away behind the walls for a simple and seamless user experience. Add to all of this the home’s unbeatable downtown location, mere minutes walking distance from countless coffeeshops, restaurants, and the Grove Street PATH Station.
