If you’re looking for a place where you can entertain loved ones within the confines of a historical home, look no further than the West End's 909 Dayton Street.
Built in 1880 and just a few blocks west of Rhinegeist, the stately slate blue beauty features 4 bedrooms, 3.1 baths, a 2-car garage, a huge master suite with a giant walk-in closet, and a gorgeous master bath. Whoever moves in will have the best of both worlds: city living and space for all their friends in their huge new living room, private fenced-in backyard, and detached carriage house that features charming rustic beams along its ceiling.
While the home may be fully renovated, it boasts some eye-catching features such as exposed brick walls, rich hardwood floors, and carefully restored arched doorways.
“The biggest selling feature is how the seller has preserved as many of the historical details of the home while modernizing it,” says Coldwell Banker West Shell Realtor Bill Draznik. “The original facade, floors, banisters, trim and plaster-work are features that cannot be replicated today and truly make the home one of a kind.”
When it comes to entertaining friends and family, you can't forget the food—or rather, how you make the food. The gourmet kitchen is certainly the heart of this home. Party prep for all your pals will be a breeze in a kitchen featuring sleek white marble countertops, island seating, a farmhouse sink, stainless steel appliances, and a commercial-style range.
Draznik says that homes like this along Dayton Street have been thoughtfully renovated by owners who are dedicated to improving the homes along the street. “Dayton Street is seeing a large resurgence with many homes being renovated, mostly by individuals, not developers, and this is creating a great community where everyone is emotionally invested because they are doing the work themselves.”
So let’s see.old-world charm? Check. Lots of space? Check. A friendly, history-loving community? Check. You as a resident? Still pending (but hopefully not for long).
