This rare state street beauty, known as the "Ernest T. Robbins residence", is a Tudor Revival style house built in 1933. Unlike many homes in the neighborhood, the home remained in the same family for 44 years. Consequently, it has remained mostly unmodified until 2020 when it was taken under new ownership. The Kindred Homestead team, along with CU Under Construction came into this home and immediately saw the potential in its extraordinary craftsmanship; the arched doorways, original hardwood floors, beamed ceilings and window seats flanked by alcoves with built-ins. Together the team wanted to preserve as much of the character of this home as possible while giving every space the much needed attention it deserved. That's why they used only the finest products and intentional design planning to ensure each item placed in this home would look as though it always belonged there. On the main floor, the dining room featuring recessed paneled wainscoting was opened up to the kitchen to allow that seamless flow between the two spaces. The kitchen's custom made cabinets and marble floors, along with the soapstone quartz countertops make this space the place to be! Also enjoy the newly placed 1/2 bathroom off the kitchen, full of so much charm and character you would have thought it was original to the house! Right off the entryway is the large, brightly lit living room, with the original limestone fireplace & built in bench seat. Located near the rear of the home is the prestigious in home office furnished with the original built in shelving and cabinetry still in perfect condition. Off the back of the house, enjoy the screened in back porch that looks over the large wooded oasis of a backyard; home to various species of birds. On the second floor, the Primary bedroom got a major makeover; the original closet was converted into a bathroom suite with a large walk-in shower and easy to reach shower valve. A large walk-in closet was integrated using some existing attic space to create an even more spacious & functional closet. On the other side of the upstairs are 2 additional bedrooms that are steps away from the hallway bathroom. This bathroom was also completely redone to include all new floor and wall tile, vanity, and fixtures. All new plumbing & 200 AMP electrical service has been run throughout the entire home. A new water heater was installed, as well as, with an entire new HVAC system was put into place throughout the home for the modern conveniences of central air and heat. In addition the original steam boiler has been serviced and functions along side the upgraded HVAC system. The basement level contains a storage/mechanical room, the original laundry room, wine cellar, and large recreation space. . *This house is a true example of preserving the character of an old home with the modern amenities of a new one. This team did all they could to modernize this house for the next home owner to continue making it theirs.
