Property Description

Splendor and warmth radiate from this estate home filled with innumerable memories and the unsurpassed charm of yesteryear. It now awaits another family's dream to become a reality. To say this home was made for entertaining is an understatement! What a joyous occasion the holidays were and will continue to be in this extraordinary home! Each Christmas it came alive with a spectacle of lights and song! The spacious living room housed an organ where everyone gathered to sing. There is a wall of built-ins perfect for cherished keepsakes and storage. The stone fireplace is an additional focal point of this massive area with a built-in bar where many a story has been shared. The spiral staircase adds to this room's unsurpassed charm. A wall of windows and double doors face the courtyard with a three-tiered water fountain. Under the stairway, you will discover a closet that evolved into a favorite play space for younger members of the previous occupants. The primary suite is down and gives access to the outside, offers dual closets with external storage above, and entry into the secondary bedroom through beautiful 15-panel glass double doors. This room was used as a nursery but can be transformed into a home office. The primary bath has been thoughtfully updated with a walk-in shower and freestanding vanity and mirror. Original wood floors are found throughout much of this home. Off the foyer, you will experience a den with a fireplace and a bay-style window majestically filling most of the wall. Adjacent you will find the dining room waiting to provide many more cherished memories to its new owners. The 15-panel glass double wood doors lead to the main living area which became the heart of the home. The former owners would swing these doors wide open to transform the living room, dining room, and den into one grand party room. The sounds of Bing Crosby and Perry Como would emanate from the Hi-Fi. This kitchen offers plenty of space to spread out and in the past has aided in catering many a bridal shower, baby shower, and birthday party! It features custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances including a built-in oven and microwave, and a smooth cooktop built into the island. This spacious home entertained all! In the past, it has given enjoyment to more than 80 partygoers at a time. To accommodate the ever-growing parties in the past the owner built a removable cedar and plexiglass enclosures around the patio, then built holders on the side of the house to store them and they are still there! The backyard is a fabulous place for a weekend bar-b-que. Additionally, you will appreciate the corner lot and garage apartment that gives many options for family members, possible renters and etc. Mary Louise is a special dwelling place that harkens back to a different time. A time when we ran at a slower pace; and took time to celebrate many moments. Family became friends and friends became family. This home awaits someone to pick up where it has left off and improve upon what has been well loved.
