Maybe the coolest home to come for sale in the Drive this year! A 10 from the outside & a 10 from the inside. Taken back to the studs in 2011, this home was converted to a single family 3 bedroom home but easy to convert back, zoned RT-5 with 2 addresses already! 1st floor features an entry way, 3 bedrooms, the master with a walk-in closet & French doors to your private patio + yard. 2nd floor is an open plan with wide plank fir floors, tons of natural light, a chef kitchen with Thermador gas stove and Traulsen fridge. There is a veranda off the front, a deck off the back leading down to the yard, plus a small loft great for a home office or homework area. The list goes on and on but the home has the perfect blend of quality craftsmanship, outstanding design, and the perfect blend of form, function… fabulous! Just very cool.
