Built in 1924 on a (nearly) 9,000-square-foot lot, 224 Spencer Avenue is newly remodeled hybrid of both traditional and contemporary design. The home itself covers just over 2,000 square feet, making for very cozy living quarters. On the first floor, refinished wood flooring spans the living and dining rooms, while new cabinets, appliances, quartz countertops, and textured tiles complete the kitchen. ‘Round the corner and accessible from an outside entrance, a part-mudroom, part-laundry room showcases an antique porcelain farmhouse sink…and lessens the chance of dirty floors elsewhere. The first floor is also reserved for the coveted master suite, which may be best recognized by its spa-like bath’s double stone-top vanity and subway-tiled shower. Expecting guests? Two additional bedrooms and bathrooms can be found on the premises, along with enough driveway and garage space for seven cars. Expecting guests particularly prone to overheating? This place boasts double-hung, double-paned, energy-efficient windows — so crank up that central AC and chill.
↑ Two-car garage and additional driveway space for up to five cars.
