Only a job relocation makes this home available again; this gorgeous historic Victorian is truly a cut above. No expense was spared in making this approximately 4,000 square foot home the premier home in historic Smyrna, with beautiful mahogany porch boards, updated cement board siding and windows, and a wonderfully maintained exterior. The home features all new electrical, plumbing, and insulation throughout the house, and relatively new natural gas heater and central air conditioning throughout the home, plus SOLAR PANELS to reduce electric bills. Inside, there are beautifully stripped and restored hardwood moldings and floors. Just off the main entry is the formal living room with a decorative fireplace and a speak-easy era wet bar hidden behind one section of the floor to ceiling book case. The adjacent dining room has wonderful moldings, light filled windows and an easy flow to the adjacent sitting/family room and kitchen. A truly inspired renovation, the kitchen features floor to ceiling white dimensioned subway tile, a beautiful center island with a Carrera marble top, natural Vermont soapstone counter tops, a commercial dual fuel range with pot filler, exposed beams, stainless steel appliances, and a baking center. Next to the kitchen is the main floor laundry /mud room complete with a dog shower. The second level features three generously sized bedrooms, one of which is a spectacular master suite with multiple closets and a huge en-suite bathroom with marble floors and a custom tiled shower and copper soaking tub. A renovated hall bath completes the second level. There is a full third level to this home, accessed by a beautiful full width staircase. It includes a second family/media area, with a play nook and a full office, a large third full bathroom and fourth bedroom. The exterior of the home has been beautifully landscaped and has winding brick paver paths and patios, a spectacular outdoor pergola covered dining area, a lovely fire pit, plus a detached barn that has been converted into a two car garage with a separate walk-up work room/storage area above it. The backyard is fully fenced and gated and has been planted with fruit trees and lovely native trees. This is truly a luxury renovation; a San Francisco style and quality painted lady Victorian home that is now available in historic Smyrna. Make your appointment and fall in love with this amazing home. You will not find a restoration and renovation of this depth and quality in the area again.
