Property Description

This historic home, built in 1925, has been completely renovated from top-to-bottom and a new cottage has just recently been completed in August 2017. Situated on an oversized lot of 7,500 square feet in the heart of Laurel Park, this pristine home is unique in that it sits back from the street, unlike many homes in the area. The first floor has restored pine flooring, 9-foot ceilings and an original fireplace. The downstairs bath has a clawfoot bathtub, two-foot octagonal tile and a new pedestal sink. The kitchen has been totally renovated with new cabinets, soft glide drawers, new appliances and includes a gas stove. There is also a small bedroom on the first floor that is adjoined to the downstairs bath. As you climb the stairs to the
second floor, you are greeted by a cozy sitting area with a desk and two chairs that look out the window onto Osprey Avenue. There are two bedrooms and a new bath upstairs. The cottage was recently completed to complement the original home. There are new shutters to match the existing home along with an oversized 22-by-24 two-car garage. The cottage is 528 square feet and includes a full kitchen, living space, open bedroom, full bath, laundry room and has vaulted ceilings. The home has two on demand water heaters, new metal roofing, two new air conditioning units and the list goes on. If you have been looking for a home in the Laurel Park area that provides a guest cottage for the in-laws or to rent, this is it.
