If these walls could talk!
161 Jessie Street has been lovingly updated while maintaining much of the character and charm with White Oak flooring downstairs, gas insert in the fireplace with new built-in mantle, guest bath has hexagon honed marble tile, custom-built vanity and lovely old clawfoot tub, heated limestone flooring in master bath with large, tumbled marble double head shower and beautiful marble topped vanity in master bathroom. This home boasts 10’ coffered ceilings in the living, dining room and kitchen, original wainscoting in downstairs bedrooms, bathroom and office, many of the original, beautiful leaded glass windows and french doors.
The newly remodeled open kitchen and dining room are a masterpiece! Honed marble slab countertops and backsplash behind the 6 burner Viking range, the handmade Manzanita end-cut butcher block island is a work of art, 36” ceramic Shaw Farmhouse sink with Rohl fixtures and custom soft close built in cabinetry galore, Bosh dishwasher, GE Convection/microwave oven, it’s a chef’s dream. A custom 10’ built-in banquet with additional drawers in the dining area allow seating for many around your dining table. The fully remodeled Butler’s Pantry is like an additional kitchen with its own Shaw farmhouse sink and Bosh dishwasher, wine refrigerator, glass built in cabinets and floor to ceiling built-in pantry. Newly remodeled laundry room with large folding countertop and built in dog bed cubbies are dreamy!
Also new to home are an HVAC system, completely re-piped plumbing, solar system, electric car charging station, many new windows, newly remodeled historic old water tower and much more!
The semi-private backyard is a great place to relax, host friends and family for meals or soccer games! A stone built in BBQ, walls, patio, walkways and fire pit are enjoyable about 9 months of the year. The yards and gardens are watered with abundant well water while the house is served by Kenwood Water Company.
Come see this is a beautiful, unique property before it's too late. Please call with a days notice.
