OPEN HOUSE 10/24/2020 11AM TO 1PM. 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. Upstairs wood floors to be refinished. SPECIAL SHOWNG INSTRUCTIONS FOR FRIDAY/SATURDAY/SUNDAY SHOWING RULE:This section of Sligo Creek Parkway is closed Friday through Sunday from Flower Avenue, turning right on Houston, going past Roanoke and turning right again at Brighton Avenue by the Cambridge apartment complex. you will need to go STRAIGHT AHEAD on Brighton and not turn left as it curves to the left. You will be entering what will seem like a nondescript alley, but if you go straight ahead for 30 yards or so, you will be facing a big blue dumpster and our driveway will be on her left. There are two speed bumps we installed, so you will want to expect those, and then our house will be on the left.
