Geoffrey Nelson Presents
A Lifestyle of Marvelous Rarities...
The magnetism of the Rousseau Style is on full display at this meticulously renovated architectural jewel...circa 1935 and recently upgraded with immaculate taste and detail.
Steps from Chestnut Street, this is one of the Marina's most charismatic single-family marvels. Cast in the classically-inspired 1930s Rousseau Style, the home revolves around a central atrium that ensconces this Open Floorplan in soothing light. Bridging the best of classic elan and thoroughly modern entertaining flair, this Marina beauty also features a grand lower level with garden access that functions as its own flat with huge media room, luxury kitchenette, and remodeled guest suite. The rear gardens are an instant Wow-Factor on sheer size and depth, along with mature perimeter foliage that inspires your own private park.
The current owners have conducted extensive updates in recent years, including luxury kitchen remodel, new electrical, new roof, updated bathrooms, reconfiguring of garage to full 3 cars, stunning new kitchenette downstairs (with sink, dishwasher, microwave, undercounter refrigerator, and wine cooler), new European white oak flooring, new interior doors, dramatically widened doorways, closet customizations, new lighting, new landscaping, and much more.
The architecture is best expressed as "luxury in the details." Before entering the home, the French-inspired front facade is a composition unto itselfcomplete with elabaroate iron grillwork, arched windows, cartouches, and other design gestures evoking neoclassical richness. Beyond the secure entry, the foyer introduces the orignal ornately crafted plaster moldings. A regal and luminous chamber, the living room soaks in morning sun topped by 10 ft. 3 inch ceilings. A re-designed marble fireplace and artisan built-in library shelving reflect the careful attention to detail of this renovation. European white oak floors with 8 inch planks are the perfect match for the aesthetic. Moving to the dining room, an octagonal tray ceiling is ornamented with plaster moldings. The sense of natural light is a soothing and recurring design theme. The central atrium inspires al fresco coffee or a succulent garden, but more brilliantly, becomes a source of effusive light. By later afternoon, the rear wings of the home are bathed in bright western exposures. At the heart of the home, the open kitchen is expertly remodeled by the current owners. All white custom cabinetry and quartz countertops complement streaming light from the breakfast bar's huge skylight and nearby atrium. A barrel-vaulted ceiling arches gracefully overhead at 9 ft. 3 inches.
With an extraordinary deep lot of 4,813 sq. ft., the home is a statement of indoor/outdoor transitions. The two top floor bedrooms (including primary) open out to a picturesque sun deck overlooking the green garden. Downstairs, the hangout-friendly Media Room, also with plenty of extra space for office desk, opens directly to a sun-soaked party terrace. Imagine your corporate events, barbecues, or simple family leisure, all with seamless ingress/egress with the media room.
Perfectly sited between Chestnut and Union Streets, this retreat is a wonderland of walkability, easily accessing all of the most tony hot spots this famous location has to offer...experience the rarity of this Single-Family offering, unique amongst the City's Finest.
