Preserved vintage 1926 built English style with original charm and details in a great NW neighborhood.

If you have ever heard of "preservation by neglect" and wondered if such a home still existed or what it might mean, well, this is it. The seller inherited this preserved home over 30 yrs ago and moved in and lived there without ever even emptying a closet or changing a thing. While all of the personal items and furniture are now removed, the originality of the house is preserved. The architectural details include Batchelder-like tiles (most likely the real thing) surround the fireplace, wrought iron curtain rods, sconces, hex tile kitchen counter, fabulous tiled bath, hardwood floors, mahogany window moldings and more. Of course, "original" means original and the plumbing and systems are also original. A new roof was put on in 1992. The three bedrooms are very large as is the grand living room with high coved ceiling. The great sunny breakfast room is in the front of the house and one can picture the original the owners sipping coffee while chatting and watching the neighborhood. There is an inviting front porch to welcome passing neighbors and a huge backyard and double garage. With 1400 sf per assr on a 6037 sf lot per assr, this is a great home and property for the purist looking for vintage and charm.
