Forest Hill Classic Colonial Revival View Home!

Front A.jpg

This splendid Traditional Revival view home built in 1919 is beautifully situated on a romantic tree-lined block and over-sized lot in the heart of Forest Hill, close to West Portal Village and public transportation! An inviting walkway with garden entrance leads to the striking vestibule with notable overhead balcony and front door and into the impressive foyer with two coat closets and gorgeous open-banister gumwood staircase. The magnificent light-filled formal living room with pretty outlooks boasts an imposing wood-burning fireplace with original mantel and granite surround, handsome moldings and hardwood floors. The exquisite banquet-size formal dining room with stunning stained glass window and views to the backyard is perfect for entertaining! The fabulous remodeled gourmet kitchen with charming breakfast corner, menu planning writing desk and French doors that open to the terrific wrap-around walk-out deck overlooking the garden showcases all stainless-steel appliances including a Capital six-burner gas stove with industrial-style hood, KitchenAid refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher, convenient pantry, prep-sink, granite counters and custom wood cabinets with slow-close drawers. A sharp remodeled full bath with big walk-in shower ends this floor.

The home's remarkable staircase ascends to the upper level with large landing, hallway, two linen closets and private living quarters. The sumptuous master bedroom suite with multiple arched windows, stately decorative front balcony and flower boxes features and excellent home office/sitting room with views to the garden, lovely dressing room and an outstanding remodeled marble-tile bath with shower over cast-iron tub. Two additional good-size bedrooms - both with spectacular views to Edgehill Mountain - and a "vintage" tile bath with shower over cast-iron tub and pedestal sink finish this floor.


The lower level includes a guest bedroom, spacious full bath with claw-foot tub and a laundry room with huge utility sink, folding table and ample storage. The extraordinary park-like landscaped backyard with mature trees, flowering garden, sweeping lawn, brick patio and arbor with built-in bench completes this truly special home!
