Description

In 1895 architects Diven and White designed the elegant and restrained facade of this 5 bedroom, 4 bath Kenwood home for John and Mary Woodhead. They would still recognize the broad southern porch today and although their period details remain, the house has been wonderfully updated. Carved balustrades of the main stair echo the past, while a chef's kitchen provides all of the modern conveniences. Living room with cherry fireplace mantle, coved molding, built-in mirrors, and hardwood floors. Swarovski crystals add to the glow of the formal dining room. An addition to the main level offers a bedroom suite, while upstairs one finds 4 bedroom and 2 full baths. Newer furnace and air conditioner. Kitchen features a Viking stove, freezer, refrigerator, 2 dishwashers, and industrial hood. Tank-less hot water heater, alarm system, walk-in closet and dressing area, new baths, finished basement, 2-car garage and beautiful yard. Beautiful home awaits the next chapter of its incredible history.
