Grand Georgian Detached Single in the heart of Roxborough with 4 Bedrooms, and 2 and a half baths. Large yard and wrap-around porch set this house apart, even on an already outstanding street with many lovely homes. The property is almost entirely surrounded and protected by a large hedge. This and the wrap-around porch provide a sense of privacy in the vibrant City. This is a wonderful spot from which to watch the occasional bicycle race or the approaching thunder storm. Original details, wood work, and charm have been meticulously preserved by the owner. The house is largely intact in its original state, and much of the handsome woodwork is stained and not painted. This is immediately apparent as one enters the home into the stately foyer and staircase. In the large combined Living Room/Dining Room area is an arched alcove with views of the porch and the yard, providing just enough space of a comfortable chair or game table. Large and many windows provide great natural light throughout the house. The Kitchen has the original wood butler's pantry. One can walk out of the Kitchen through double doors to a patio for outdoor entertainment. The main Bedroom has a large bay window allowing light throughout the day and a rear window for afternoon sunsets. Indeed, the oriel windows are beautiful features of the house, one providing a pure southern exposure. In the main bedroom the former back staircase has been converted to a cedar-lined closet that runs the length of the room. The Washer and Dryer are in second floor bathroom. Both second and third floors have full bathrooms. There is a second kitchen on the upper most floor, making for either an in-law or au pair suite. The owner/seller is an antiques dealer who over the years had installed over $15,000 in period lighting fixtures. A detailed list of those may be produced upon request. Over the years the sizable yard has proven wonderful for gardening and has even had space for fruit trees. Dexter is a one way, well maintained street with lighter traffic. The neighborhood has its own community park, known as Fairview Park, cared for by many neighbors which has helped to make this a true neighborhood. Seller has contracted for installation of a gas line to house, just waiting for PGW to connect.
