Come with me where dreams are born, and time is never planned...and you won't even have to go to Neverland! A historic 112 old Craftsman w/ a porch made for watching the world go by. The cool moist air reminds you the ocean is nearby and this unique home, its configuration and the surrounding tourist features might lend itself to be an ideal investor opportunity for a STR holding. Carroll Parks' circular road harkens back to a bygone era of the horse & buggy and the houses surrounding the green park are a necklace of vintage jewels. Mostly true to its architectural origins the authentic hardware on the solid oak front door sets the stage for the details to come. Original oak hardwood floors flow seamlessly from the sitting room, dining room & den. With Brazilian Koa hardwood in the Primary suite, hall and the second story. Custom stained glass punctuates many of the doors & windows and takes them from merely functional to artistic. The windows have been replaced & meet historic standards of the area being double paned, double hung sash & casement style which keep street sounds muffled & temps controlled. Solid oak kitchen cabinets are anchored by Verde Matisse counters w/ a European edge & the custom, deep cast, country sink is embellished w/ an acanthus leaf motif. Stainless appliances gleam & encircle the Celtic knot medallion w/ four dragons the ancient protectors of the earth & life. Improved insulation maximizes the air delivered from the Mitsubishi zonal heating & cooling; keeping the home comfortable both upstairs & down w/ energy efficiency. All copper re-piping keeps the Noritz Tank-less water heater sated and the Mansfield whirlpool Deep Bathing-Well filled & ready to massage away stress. The laundry alcove off the kitchen houses full sized front loading W/D stacked for economy & ergonomics. Stow fresh towels & linens in the freestanding acanthus motif embellished armoire or use it as an adjunct pantry. The primary suite on the main level opens via French doors, embellished with stained glass, onto an enclosed patio w/ an intricate herringbone pattern brick underfoot. The ensuite bathroom w/ ornate free standing dual sink vanity is anchored by a custom fabricated Verde Matisse marble top. The matched mirrors reflect the same aesthetic lines as the vanity tying together vintage estate w/ practicality. Three bedrooms & another bath upstairs for guests and don’t worry, this Grand Dame has been bolted to her foundation and has remained steadfast.
