REDUCED! A custom-built house on a private drive overlooking Sligo Creek Parkway, on a secluded half-acre lot surrounded by trees. The house and its setting invite relaxed, slower-paced living. Open the windows. You will not smell traffic. You'll inhale the earth and nature. The house itself is spacious, solidly built in 1947, and recently upgraded with a new primary suite: a large bedroom with a cathedral ceiling ~ large bathroom with sauna for two ~ long walk-in closet wide enough for 2-3 facing chests of drawers on each side ~ a room for den or office with two entire walls of windows, just off the Primary bedroom. Underneath this bedroom is a room the same size (no cathedral ceiling) with its own entrance, ideal for a large office or private practice. In addition: original living room with cathedral ceiling and loft, a brick fireplace, overhead high-def. projector and pull-down 10-foot screen ~ dining room that can seat 15-20, with a wood stove and a screened-in porch with it's own grilling deck ~ a contemporary kitchen with Viking gas stove, separate electric wall oven, double-unit Fisher-Pakel dishwasher, a large movable island on casters, and concrete counters with a pair of inlaid fossils. This all adds up to 4100-5600 sq ft, depending on how the above-ground basement apartment gets counted. Most of the year, the surrounding foliage is so dense that houses on the other side of Sligo Creek can barely be seen. If you like having trees as "nice, quiet neighbors", this may be for you. The real estate market always has many lovely houses for sale. However, there aren't many that will feel like a blessing every time you approach them on a tree-lined parkway, come up the long, private driveway, open the door and walk in. (Given the Covid crisis, most times the seller will be home and sitting on screened porch. You can direct all questions to listing agent)
