Want to downsize without forfeiting style? A great new listing in the heart of the Cultural District at 3759 West 6th Street may be the perfect solution for you.
Attractive hardscape and manicured lawn form the perfect setting for the charming 1,543-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bath bungalow. The tidy, well-mannered façade however, doesn’t prepare the visitor for the scale and luxury inside.
The living room ceiling soars to a peaked gable, punctuated with bold beams. Coffee colored hardwood floors and complementary wood trim enrich the interior,
Arched, cased openings, period sconces, and built-in cabinets have given the 1928 build a tailored, timeless appeal. A coffered ceiling and bespoke, paneled,\ wainscoting add grace and distinction to the formal dining room.
The eat-in kitchen has the full repertoire of must haves and extras including a commercial-grade Wolf cooktop, built-in coffee maker, ice maker, warming drawer, pot filler, and deep farmhouse sink. Pastel stone floors and granite counter tops complement custom cabinetry.
In contrast to the sun-drenched living and dining room, the library has a rich, dark austerity. A warm wash adds depth to the walls and ceiling. There is a large, double window and a door to the back.
The master bedroom gains added height from a tray ceiling. With its honey-colored paneling, custom marble pedestal sink and comely black marble the master bathroom look as if it were plucked from a venerable old hotel.
And here downsizing doesn’t mean downsizing your wardrobe. With its opulent gilt and verdigris cabinets, the master closet/dressing room is a real stunner and nothing short of sumptuous.
The back garden is a verdant retreat. A one-bedroom, one-bath guest house adds square footage not included in the listing details and offers income potential. Its orderly interior looks like a hotel suite. There are two covered parking spaces.
