Welcome to an architectural gem that has been updated in a historically sensitive manner.
With gumwood trim and quartersawn oak floors on the main level, blown glass doorknobs upstairs, and original light fixtures throughout, 160 Kenyon Street retains most of the ornate original features. The home was passed down through generations of a single family for nearly 90 years, preserving the magnificent details. The current owners then made many thoughtful cosmetic and mechanical updates.
The double entry opens to a seating area and turned staircase. A living room with oversized fireplace provides a generous space for entertaining, and includes French doors to a covered patio. A one-of-a-kind, walnut paneled, oval shaped dining room with built-ins is the perfect setting for any dinner party. Beyond the dining room, a small parlor with built-in bar overlooks the rear yard, and a traditional butler’s pantry connects to the kitchen. The kitchen, which was recently updated with marble counters, new appliances and additional cabinetry, retains the original slate sink and walk-in dry goods pantry.
A spacious second level includes a wide main hallway and four bedrooms. The master bedroom has an en-suite full bath, two closets, and a private balcony. All of the rooms are large enough to comfortably accommodate a king sized bed, and there is a sleeping porch off one of the rear bedrooms. The top level features three additional bedrooms, a full bath, and unfinished attic space.
The home has a newer gas heat and hot water system, updated plumbing and electric, and laundry on the main level. There is a detached two car garage, and the freshly painted exterior accentuates the home’s details. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity for a truly special West End property!
