Built in 1974, this custom Greek revival home for sale was designed by architect Jim Guthrie. Two historic doorways were the inspiration for the design of this home, and continue to be a conversation piece to all that enter.
Upon entering 190 Wexford Place, you will marvel at the 16 foot ceilings which were necessary to appropriately showcase the exquisite front door. As you look forward through the front entrance hall, the rear historic door provides beautiful light to the outdoors, and provides the perfect compliment to the front entrance. The formal dining room and living room flank the foyer, and feature beautiful hardwood floors, and an abundance of natural light. The gas log fireplace in the living room provides a wonderful back drop for family gatherings and is a show stopper with the historic mantle.
The sunken family room boasts 16 foot ceilings, a wood burning fireplace and custom built in shelving. The antique door leading to the rear brick patio was upgraded with glass double doors to bring the outside in. Additionally, there is a door leading to a private screened porch which overlooks the tranquil setting provided by the private 2.57 acre lot.
The kitchen is a bright spot in the house with 12 foot ceilings, great cabinet storage and tile floors. Currently used as a sitting room, the breakfast room will easily accommodate a table for 6. Located on the main level, the spacious guest suite features an en suite bath and double closets. This bedroom could easily be increased in size by bumping into the recessed screen porch which is on the opposing side of the rear wall.
Upstairs is home to three graciously sized bedrooms, each with ample closet space and storage. Currently, the master suite is upstairs and has 4 walk in closets and an en suite bath with a dressing table, and separate tub and stand up tile shower. The two secondary bedrooms share a full hall bath which boasts two separate vanities, and a tile surround tub/shower combo. You will be delighted at the size of these bedrooms, which could both easily hold two queen size beds! In addition to the great closet space provided in each of the bedrooms, you will find two wonderful storage closets with full size doors. One of these storage closets is large enough to create an additional bathroom for one of the secondary bedrooms, or could even serve as a wonderful home office! The biggest surprise to this home is that there is a large unfinished rec room in the basement with a working wood burning fireplace.
