Spectacular inside and out, this historic Craftsman bungalow on one of Ormewood Park’s best streets will be hitting the market soon, but it won’t last long. This thoughtful renovation retains the historic character while providing all the modern conveniences, as well as energy-wise upgrade throughout. Features include original unpainted woodwork, heart pine floors, three gas fireplaces, plantation shutters, a master suite on the main floor with an exquisite master bath, recently renovated kitchen, and a large upstairs bedroom/loft (easily converted to two rooms) with a full bath. Out front there’s an over sized rocking-chair front porch overlooking the beautifully landscaped garden, but the big payoff is right out back, with the extra-large fenced yard, a relaxing screened porch, 2-story workshop with lots of extra storage space, plus a saltwater swimming pool and hot tub.  This house is soon to be listed, but give us a call and we’ll see about a preview.
