Welcome to this EXTRAORDINARY 1924 (ELEVATOR )stone ( 16" granite block quarried at the Cleveland Park site where the Uptown Theater still stands) Arts and Crafts Bungalow, in which three generations of the master builder's family lived until the current owner purchased in 2008. The honest and elegant materials, construction, and original design were honored by Vanze Barnes in the expansion and renovation that created the LIGHT, BRIGHT home you an currently considering. DID I SAY ELEVATOR (view at camera icon). Sited above the street giving an airy perch for the expansive front porch complete with romantic SWING, this center entry view thru home and its separate granite solar panel roofed garage with EV charger sit squarely on a raised walled 12,600 sq ft. corner lot with FLAT alley access in the rear. Special attention has been given to the detailed design of this homes systems and services. The reformation of original storm windows considered the equal need for screening and in most cases each window has both available. The audio/video systems and services are managed by their designer ONE TOUCH. The walk ways are flat and have a snow melt assist system. Irrigation and both external and internal lighting have been designed with care. and safety in mind. The expansion was finished with cedar-like ceramic tile shingles to match the original materials and design. The internal elevator reaches all three floors and is easily accessible for system management as is the heating. The lower level, used as a gym and occasional play space has designated mechanical rooms. laundry center, lots of well ventilated storage, and potential as well for further finished spaces (additional bathrooms and living /play space) with a stair-ed rear garden egress).
