Stunning restored home in Fortwood! Seller has painstakingly converted this home from its most recent use as a triplex back into a stunning single family residence, providing all of today's desired amenities, while maintaining the charm and integrity of its original stature. The home boasts hardwoods and tile throughout (w/painted concrete in the basement), beautiful trim, pocket doors, transoms, restored lighting, built-in cabinetry and storage, and 6 fireplaces - 5 of which have gas hooked up and 2 with gas logs inserts in place. This home has a very versatile floor plan and many of the rooms could serve multiple purposes, especially the sunroom which is being used as a light-filled dining room, the current main level 4th bedroom which has a 1/2 bath and could also be a spaciousoffice or library, and the daylight basement which is heated and cooled and has been used as an art studio/apartment, as the front portion has a kitchenette with sink and wine fridge, walk-in pantry, access to the private water closet, laundry room with shower, as well as the back area that is mostly open but has plenty of nooks and crannies for storage and even a fridge and oven. Your tour begins with the covered front porch that opens into the stately foyer with its pocket doors to the formal living room which in turn has pocket doors to the family room. The kitchen has beautiful marble countertops, a center island, built-in buffet with glass display cabinetry, stainless appliances and access to the sunroom. The second level features a master suite that was converted from 2 bedrooms and has a fireplace, a ''walk-in closet within a closet'' and access to a private balcony overlooking Oak St. The oversized master bath also has a fireplace, 2 pedestal sinks, a claw footed tub and a separate shower with tile and glass surround and body jets. There is also a lovely landing which doubles as a sitting area, an additional bedroom and a full bath. The entire 3rd story makes a wonderful private suite with sitting area, study nook and spacious full bath with built-in closets, pedestal sink and claw footed tub/shower combo. The back patio and yard is accessible from both the sunroom and the basement and a portion of the yard could also be used for parking if such a conversion is desired with access provided for by the deed of neighboring 856 Oak St. The property is zoned R-3 and is being successfully utilized as an Air BnB, so showings will have to be scheduled around guests. Please call to check availability, but keep in mind, it will probably be easier to show during mid-week. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed.
