This Elmwood Park property is very special. The house was built in 1910,...

This Elmwood Park property is very special. The house was built in 1910, and the property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The backyard English garden is breathtaking - a Southern Vistas/ Mark Schimmoeller masterpiece that features brick walkways, over 200 boxwood, several camellias believed to be more than 100 years old, a fountain, and a garden workshop. The house has been beautifully and authentically renovated and was featured in "Columbia Metropolitan" magazine. In the early 2000's, the house was "gutted" to the studs and re-built, and a new electrical panel, new wiring, and new plumbing was installed. The current owners replaced the roof in 2010 and both HVAC units in 2014. The first and second floors have 10 1/2' ceilings, 10 1/2" baseboards, and hardwood floors. There are 5 gas log fireplaces. On the first floor, there is a spacious front hall and formal living and dining rooms, each with period-appropriate crown moulding. There's also a small den (originally the 4th bedroom), beautiful kitchen with Dacor and Thermador appliances, and a generous, bright breakfast area overlooking the back yard. All three bedrooms (each with a private bath and fireplace) are on the second floor. The bath area in the master suite has a double-vanity with quartz counter top, spa tub, separate shower, and double custom closets. Outdoor living space is found on the nearly 1,400 square of covered porches. Properties like this are very rare in our market.
