One of the classic Georgian beauties of the city nicely situated on almost a half acre and just a short walk to beautiful Rockford Park and the restaurants and shops in Trolley Square. You will find this gracious home perched on the corner of Bancroft Parkway and Delaware Avenue with beautiful vistas from the front of the home looking down the Parkway. From the time you enter the front door of this impressive brick colonial you will realize the quality and architectural detail of a bygone era. The first floor will impress you with its circular flow for entertaining. A large addition consists of breakfast room, family room with gas burning fireplace, and a game or reading room that are all open to the kitchen. A spacious, original butler's pantry separates the kitchen from the formal dining room. Highlights of the dining room are twin, lighted built-in corner cupboards. On the opposite side of the home you will find a library with handsome casework from the early 1900's when the home was constructed and a four-season sunroom with custom, original tile floor. The sunroom adjoins the living room, highlighted by a wood burning fireplace and lighted mantle. The three-story staircase will lead you to six bedrooms, four full bathrooms, laundry room, and craft room, which can be used as another bedroom. Master suite has custom built-ins in the sitting area, newly renovated Carrera marble bathroom, custom walk-in closet/dressing area. Lovely brick terrace overlooks the very private, large fenced-in rear yard with mature plantings in the gardens. Oversized, two-car detached garage with ample driveway parking. The curb appeal of this home is unrivaled with the time-honored features that make a colonial one of the most desirable styles of homes. Beautifully updated and renovated through the years, this home is ready for the next steward to enjoy all the home has to offer.
