It’s really no surprise that when a Realtor tells you he has a listing on the highly sought after estate block of Mercedes Avenue, the home is a showstopper.
But when Robert Kucharski of the Kucharski Group with David Griffin & Company Realtors is using superlatives like “magnificent,” you best believe him.
The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath, 4,126 square-foot Traditional home sits on a third of an acre on one of the most coveted stretches of Lakewood real estate.
From the moment you walk into the home, you can tell it is something special. Grand traditional architecture that has been maintained and updated beautifully showcases a floor plan that plainly wants to host amazing gatherings, but is also inviting enough to truly be a home for a family.
In addition to all those bedrooms, this stunner also has three living areas.
“This home offers an excellent floor plan for entertaining yet exudes a welcoming warmth throughout,” said Kucharski. “The functional center hall floor plan flows into the effortlessly elegant formal living and dining room and continues into the gourmet kitchen.”
And can we talk about this kitchen? It’s spacious, and has everything a home chef could want from a six-burner cooktop, double ovens, dishwashers (yes, more than one), a prep sink, walk-in pantry, and a butler’s pantry.
And bonus, it’s open to the richly paneled family room, which means that the cook can still be part of the fun.
But the home isn’t just functional — it is beautiful, with much care and clear deliberation taken in the finishes.
“Exquisite moldings and trim work are found throughout the home along with top-of-the-line hardware and finishes,” Kucharski said. “The beautiful crystal chandeliers and sconces will remain with the sale of the home.”
And just like the interior space was carefully planned with entertaining and warmth in mind, the outdoor space was given equal consideration. A gorgeous pool and pergola outside serve as not only a showcase for outdoor entertaining, but also a beautiful backdrop and view for a spacious master suite inside.
And that master suite is truly an owners’ retreat — it’s clear in the details. From the view from the bedroom windows to the incredible bathroom with a steam shower, jetted tub, private water closet, his-and-her vanities and fully customized walk-in closets, this is a place you go to relax at the end of the day.
The current owners also added some more guest space recently, Kucharski said, and even those quarters received the same attention to detail.
“The recently built oversized two-car garage with incredible 615 square-foot guest quarters above was designed and finished to mirror the architecture of the home and features custom cabinetry, a serving bar, reclaimed wood floors, separate bedroom with cedar lined walk-in closet, and full bath,” he said.
The grounds have seen the attention of professional landscaping to complete the picture-perfect package, and a gated motor court in front provides an extra level of privacy and convenience.
The home is listed for $1.395 million.
