Usually when I see things like "original home added on to" in property remarks, I cringe instantly because a lot of add-ons are truly AWFUL. But when we pulled up to 857 Bank Street yesterday for broker's caravan I was very pleasantly surprised.
The Victorian house was originally built in 1890 and then moved to its current location in 1966. It is currently lender owned, and the bank is actually responsible for finishing the upgrades and add-ons. While there are some finishes that I might have done differently, the lender managed to maintain some original charm throughout the home. There are great floor inlays in the hardwood floors, beautiful tile work in the bathrooms, and large windows flooding the house with light throughout.
Modern upgrades include state of the art kitchen with two sub-zeros and a commercial range, master bath with jacuzzi tub and his-and-her's steam shower, central air and heat, and in-kitchen laundry
The home also has a good sized yard with a deck and a patio overlooking the lawn.
Specs: 5 bedrooms, 3 baths, two fireplaces (living room and master bedroom), a two-car garage, hardwood floors throughout, 3,190 SF on a 11,617 SF lot. Listed for $1,200,000. If you'd like to view this home, give me a call at 626.827.9795.
