Main Level Details
This one-of-a-kind 1916 Craftsman home is situated on a lushly landscaped quarter acre adjacent to Koiner Farm in the heart of downtown Silver Spring (protected from development for posterity). From its elevated perch, the home exudes vintage charm and has been thoroughly renovated to create gorgeous and thoughtful living spaces. Exacting attention has been paid to every detail and finish. The classic wrap-around porch, with its haint blue beadboard ceiling, period-appropriate lighting and ceiling fan, is just one of several awesome outdoor living spaces. The graciousness of this home is immediately apparent. Its richly-stained rift and quarter sawn white oak flooring offsets 9’ high ceilings on the main and upper levels, providing airy rooms accented by handsome trim, five-panel doors, fabulous lighting fixtures, custom window treatments and other superb architectural features. It is a work of art. Defined rooms flow effortlessly into one another to capture an open feel while retaining warm, livable spaces. Enter the living room with custom lighting and wood-burning fireplace. A grand cased opening leads to a family room with a door to the wrap-around porch; an elegant dining room with built-in bar and an antique glass-front Shaker corner cabinet, an exquisite crystal bead chandelier; and, a truly extraordinary gourmet kitchen with windows galore, a stainless steel GE Cafe appliance package, a wine cooler and an elegant glass tile backsplash. Providing seating for 7 and loads of prep space, the elongated center and additional peninsula island with pendant lighting feature rich Stromboli granite countertops with magnificent movement and veining.
