A picket fence welcomes you to this seamless blend of old and new - this house was doubled in size in 2005. The original home retains the old world charm of a welcoming foyer and dining/living room with beveled glass pocket doors and beautiful trim work. The large dining room, open to what was originally a bright living room with bay window, can now use that space for quiet reading, music or even accommodate a second dining table for large family/holiday dinners. A butler's pantry/service bar leads to a hallway with 1/2 bath (small bureau with vessel sink) and a mud room/laundry that can only be described as charming with it's re-claimed brick floor (see if you can spot the bricks with original doggie paw prints), antique pedestal sink with exposed copper piping/faucet and exterior door. The new large, multi-purpose family room has a wood-burning fireplace, log storage and glass French doors leading to a fabulous brick-edged flagstone patio with seating & dining areas and a second brick fireplace outfitted with wrought iron cooking apparatus, all looking at the fully-fenced, sodded and beautifully landscaped backyard. This is a true oasis for close-in Eastport, all on a quiet one-way, 1 block of State St.A lovely staircase with stained glass window leads to an upstairs sitting area, a front sunny guest room, 2nd guest bedroom, hall bath with antique clawfoot tub (updated with Euro brass fixtures) and a 3rd bedroom currently used as home office for 2. The 4th bedroom is the Master Suite with his/her walk-in closets (Elfa Decor Birch & Platinum organization system) has French doors to a large balcony overlooking the stunning backyard.The very large Master bath can only be described a sumptuous - sunken spa shower for 2 with heated pebble floor, dual sink vanity and soaking tub.A partial basement is dry and pristine - spotless, with natural gas water heater & furnace serving zoned, heated floors throughout the house and has an exterior side door at top of stairs in addition to access from the kitchen.There is a 1-car garage/workshop and gravel off-street parking for 5 cars, side-by-side, accessed by Emory G. Bowen, Sr. alley between 802 & 806 Chesapeake Ave. A gate leads into the backyard.This is truly a special property - one that has been thoughtfully expanded and upgraded, including custom masonry and meticulous attention to detail throughout - will not disappoint!
