A Platt Park gem! Beautiful Victorian charm with all the modern amenities and a location that can't be beat. Half a block to historic Platt Park and library, two blocks to all the shops and restaurants on Old South Pearl Street, and centered among the blue-ribbon McKinley-Thatcher elementary school and Grant Beacon middle school. This rare large Victorian includes an addition for more living space and a three-car garage you won't find in any of the other well-built historic homes in this sought-after neighborhood. A recent $200K+ main floor renovation features a custom designed entertainer's kitchen that opens up to a formal dining room and family room like a modern dream home. Smart home features found throughout like a nest doorbell and thermostat, tankless hot-water, remote dimmable smart lights, and solar-fed electricity. Yet, the charm hits you immediately as you walk in the door. Victorian Esque classic features include a spindle staircase with a leaded glass window, built-in bookcases and crown molding throughout. A formal sitting room with a fireplace fits a baby grand piano. A main floor office/study has French doors and a charming ornate tin ceiling. High-end light fixtures fit the elegant design era. The contemporary features are a professional working kitchen with beautiful white cabinets, striking Quartz counters, 36" Jenn Air gas range with custom designed metal hood, beverage refrigerator and island bar. Sliding doors from the family room open to a backyard private oasis with stamped concrete patio area, garden area, and room for a hot tub. The second floor has a total of four bedrooms, hallway full bath with clawfoot tub, and primary bedroom has a four-piece bath, walk-in closet and great balcony overlooking the backyard.
