Property Description

Welcome to 545 Leverington Ave. This gorgeous Victorian home was built circa 1895. It has the perfect combination of old-world charm and new-age features and conveniences. Outside is a large covered front porch with impressive pillars and plenty of room seating, side yard with patio, and a backyard large enough for your grandest outdoor dreams. A new paved driveway leads to the back of the house with copious parking (detached garage and driveway parking). This home sits on over a quarter acre of land. The rear deck leads into the brand new kitchen and half bathroom. The half bathroom has built-in shelves, a window overlooking the backyard, waterfall sink faucet, new toilet, and new waterproof flooring. The kitchen is all new, perfectly designed, and will satisfy the cooks desire for space and features needed to make a delicious home cooked meal (or hire a chef to come cook in your new kitchen for a fun night in). The tiled backsplash and countertops really pop with the built-in LED undercabinet lighting. There are plenty of countertop outlets for all your cooking appliances. This kitchen comes absolutely complete with brand-new high-end Samsung appliances including a bespoke fridge/freezer (with automatic-filling water pitcher and a dual-size ice maker), dishwasher, microwave, and gas range. The stainless-steel sink has a retractable sensor faucet and garbage disposal (with easy-to-reach matching brushed gold button in the countertop). The new waterproof flooring makes cleanup a breeze. This kitchen has a seating area with space for 4+ stools. Also in the kitchen area is a pocket door with brand new Samsung bespoke smart wi-fi enabled clothes washer and dryer. Through the kitchen, youll enter the dining room with stained glass bay windows, refinished red oak hardwood floors, a built-in corner glass door display, and French doors. Off the dining room is the redone sunroom which includes separate adjustable heat and a door to the side patio. Through the dining room is the front hallway and the oversized living room. The living room has dimmable recessed lighting, built-in wooden seating along the stained-glass bay windows, and a showpiece front window including super-colorful stained glass. More French doors from the living room bring you to the front entrance and jaw-dropping glass panel doors leading to the stately front vestibule. The front hallway has a beautiful wooden staircase with refinished original heart pine stair treads. On the second floor, there is a master suite, complete with a floor-to-ceiling tiled shower. The master bathroom has a brand-new toilet, vanity, and built-in floating shelves. The shower features a waterfall shower head and handheld adjustable sprayer. In the shower is a built-in niche, custom bench, and a window with a deep sill that is fully tiled for even more shelving space. The ceiling has a designer main light and new Broan vent/light/Bluetooth speaker. Custom baseboard molding around the air vent and an extra power outlet hidden inside the vanity for all the extra plug-in items youll want to keep charging round out the finishing touches. The master bedroom includes many windows, recessed dimmable adjustable-color lighting and a center ceiling fan with a color-adjustable dimmable light (all can be controlled independently). The second-floor hallway has a full bathroom with a new Kohler tub (great for soaking), ceiling vent and heater, additional wall heater, new toilet, tiled floor, and built-in shelves. Two additional large bedrooms are on the second floor. One bedroom includes 3 bay windows. The second bedroom includes two oversized windows with deep windowsills and a built-in full-size mirror on the closet door. The third floor has two more bedrooms with original refinished heart pine floors, new windows, and a cedar closet. The third floor has independent heating from the rest of the home to better control the temperature throughout this surprisingly large home.
