If you’re an older couple looking for a quiet place to tend your garden on Saturdays, you’ll love this quaint, recently purchased Windsor Terrace townhouse with a retro charm.
This 2,090-square-foot town home is like your grandma’s house… made with love. The retro charmer has subway-tiled walls and original claw foot tubs to add to its vintage appeal. And it all starts when you walk through those nine-foot entry doors. A decorative archway greets you, ushering you into the sun-filled parlor with its 11-foot tin ceilings and original heart of pine floors. There’s also a working fireplace so you can read Chaucer while your cat Norman rubs up against your leg.
Off the parlor is a tiled guest bedroom that can double as a study. The bedroom boasts garden views and a wood-paneled bathroom with restored claw foot tub.
Upstairs, the extra large master bedroom has a walk-in closet – or study if you like – and tons of light. There’s also an additional bedroom and a renovated bathroom with marble hex tiled floor, subway tiled walls, restored original claw foot tub and skylight. The entire floor features restored pine floors, tin ceilings, and a stained glass hallway skylight.
The dining/family room has a second working fireplace and opens to a vintage kitchen with a cast iron pedestal farm sink, Chambers stove and custom cabinets.
The kitchen also has an entrance to the backyard, a social haven with custom wood fence, bluestone patio and green grass just waiting for you to put on your farmer’s hat or your old lady gardening hat and go to town.
The downstairs bathroom is also a treat with a walk-in shower with a bench and a vintage corner sink. We can only imagine the sweet, elderly couple that must have purchased this quaint town home, listed by Kyle and Karen Talbott, for $2.2 million. We’re sure they see this as a great place to spend their latter years, a place where their grandchildren can – what? Who bought this home? Alex Moulle-Berteaux?! You mean, the former head of marketing for Rockstar Games?! You mean the company that produces video games like Grand Theft Auto and Max Payne 3?! Okay, now we’ve seen it all.
