A Signature Home in Beresford Manor
This beautifully updated home has it all – a Mediterranean ambiance with designer interiors, outstanding outdoor spaces, and an amazing location just 2 blocks from vibrant 25th Avenue with its myriad restaurants. The spacious corner lot is wrapped with a long gracefully curving stucco wall with custom front and side gates, pineapple finials (the symbol of welcome), and an array of tropical and colorful foliage. The contrast of crisp white with the green foliage and verdant front lawn makes this home a standout in this desirable Beresford Manor neighborhood, also known as the Storybook House District.
Arriving at the covered entrance, draped in vines, the front door opens to a gracious living room with a focal point, half-circle fireplace that is replicated in the adjoining large office. Continue into the formal dining room through a wide passageway with slightly vaulted peak and discover a brilliant vintage chandelier that provides a dazzling reflection on the ceiling. Refinished hardwood floors and freshly painted interiors unify the entire floor plan. Ideal for today’s work-from-home needs, the large office just off the dining room (with potential as a third bedroom) showcases a half-circle fireplace plus French doors to the rear grounds and the convenient side gate. Serving it all is an updated kitchen with granite slab counters, tumbled marble backsplashes, and quality stainless steel appliances.
The home’s 2 bedrooms are amply proportioned and beautifully appointed with vintage-style ceiling lights, and stylish plantation shutters. The bedrooms are served by a fully remodeled limestone bath, which blends perfectly with the home’s style. Adding to the appeal of this lovely home are the wraparound outdoor living spaces with vast lawn edged in grasscrete brick pavers, a mature magnolia tree, and a soothing water feature. Welcome home!
