This expertly preserved, 93-year-old home in Elm Heights is a rare find. The all-brick, colonial-revival style home is located on a quiet street equidistant from the southern border of IU and Bryan Park. The current owner, a carpenter, has loved this home well for twenty-five years and personally restored many of the original details. The oak floors, windows, wood burning fireplace, crystal door hardware with skeleton keys, and front door are some of the original elements still beautifully intact today. Upon entering the home, you are greeted with a bright foyer flanked by the dining and living room. Beyond the dining room, youll find the kitchen is a nod to the 1950s complete with metal cabinetry and a built-in dining table. Just past the kitchen, the beautiful windows in the family room bring the outdoors in. This room is complete with clever built-in coat and shoe storage convenient to an exterior entrance. The upper level includes 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, ample closet space, rooftop access perfect for an herb garden, and a finished attic. The attic currently serves as a fourth bedroom but could be a great media room or home office. The full basement has a playroom, built-in desk, spacious laundry room, storage, and workshop. Outdoor entertaining space flows from the private paver patio, to the fully fenced in back yard, and to the charming gardening/storage shed. The property is complete with a restored 2-car garage with attic storage.
