Built in 1899 for one of Trenton's captains of industry. this beautifully restored and updated residence in the Berkeley Square Historic District sits majestically above brick ramparts that distinguish it from its elegant neighbors. This restoration's careful attention to detail is immediately evident in the replacement of the original hand cut wood shingles with Hardy-board facsimiles that will stand the test of time and in the new custom wood framed windows called for in Trenton's landmarked neighborhoods. You will enter the central foyer from a porch that will be perfect for three-season entertaining on pleasant evenings. Flanking the large foyer are the living room, featuring crown molding, a cozy nook for additional seating, a card table, or intimate dining, and sliding glass doors to the porch and the dining room and adjacent kitchen with a host of special features. The expanse of custom white cabinetry, quartz counter tops, stainless steel appliances (including a wine cooler!) is complemented by the multi-faceted center island that features a cook-top and a work-station/ dining table perfect both for family dining and the preparation of lavish meals for guests! The second floor, (accessed by the gracious original staircase, embraces three well-proportioned family bedrooms, a dramatic family bath with both a stand-alone glass shower and claw-footed soaking tub, and a convenient, fully-applianced laundry room large enough to accommodate a an ironing board! And, at the center of it all is a light-filled multi-purpose room with French doors that can serve as a second-floor family room, library, or exercise room. The third floor offers an owner's suite with a cathedral ceiling, a walk-in wardrobe, and a private bath. Hardwood floors grace all of the public spaces, all of the bedrooms are carpeted, and the baths are tiled. Ceiling fans abound and the color scheme has pizazz while still being neutral. Please note that the first interior pictures have been virtually staged. These photos consist of two views of the living room and one each of the second floor family room/study with hardwood floors and French doors, a 2nd floor bedroom (1 of 3), and the third floor private bedroom suite. Unstaged photos of all of the rooms follow. This is a home in one of Trenton's storied neighborhoods is not to be missed!
