Conveniently located between Westover Village and the Lee-Harrison Center, this 1925 home brings a bit of history with it. It was originally the “kitchen house” for the larger Hall’s Hill farm house which adjoins it. The home was recently expanded and renovated and now offers the modern amenities that were the stuff of dreams for 1920s kitchen workers.
Enter the home through a sweeping front lawn graced by mature trees and shrubs to a foyer with bench and coat closet. This leads to the expansive living room with a wood burning fireplace, built-ins and space for a desk and several seating areas. The large kitchen features crisp white cabinets, granite tops, stainless appliances and a breakfast area set in a bay window. Adjoining the kitchen is a dining area with seating area for family and guest to catch up with the sociable cook.
A powder room is tucked off the kitchen and entry to an area with sliding doors to the large deck and stone patio. The backyard has large trees providing shady spots for play and sports and sunny spots for gardening. The main level has excellent flow for daily living and a time when entertaining will be renewed.
Upstairs, the primary bedroom is anchored by built-ins surrounding space for a sitting area or second desk. A renovated hall bath with double sink vanity serves the three upstairs bedrooms.
The lower level has a bathroom and laundry room and is otherwise freshly painted and provides clean space for a workout area, storage, hobbies or a private Zoom room. A door leads to the back yard, making it convenient to have a quick clean up in the bath after sports or gardening.
The home is blocks from Big Walnut Park, the bike path and Parkhurst Park, the shops, restaurants, library, grocery stores, and farmer’s market at Westover Village and Lee-Harrison. The home is served by Glebe, Swanson and Yorktown schools.
