Built in 1912, the Kate S. Payton and Anna D. Ballou House is a rare example of an Arts and Crafts style home. The renovated interior blends period details, including inlaid hardwood floors and detailed moldings, with modern conveniences.
Flanking the entry foyer is a Great Room with an elegant brick fireplace that sets the mood for any occasion in both the sitting area or formal dining space. French doors step out to the bright sunroom where walls of windows warm the entire room with natural light. The avid cook will relish the eat-in kitchen boasting stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, a nearby butler’s pantry, and a breakfast area. The adjoining family room is a great place to entertain and completes the main level along with a convenient powder room.
The rear stone patio is a serene setting to dine al fresco in quiet privacy with a beautifully planted city garden.
The second floor master is an incredible suite with a brick fireplace and an ensuite spa bath with a walk-in shower. A second generous bedroom, study, a home office, a laundry, and a full bath make this floor a versatile living space. On the third floor are three additional bedrooms that all share a full bath with a vintage soaking tub.
Further living space can be found on the partially finished lower level with a spacious rec room.
