Welcome to a masterfully re-envisioned extra wide home on one of the prime Southport Corridor blocks in the Blaine School district. This oversized bungalow sits on a 35' wide lot and was completely gutted & expanded a few years back to create a home with a fantastic floorplan that has character & easily differentiates itself from the ubiquitous new construction that surrounds it.

As you enter the foyer, the home opens to a beautiful large living room that is highlighted by the gas fireplace with wood mantel and surrounding shelving, along with the art glass windows above. Beamed ceilings create a sense of warmth and character, while the sunroom in the front creates an additional conversation room.

In the back of the home, you will find a professional grade kitchen, complete with a 6 burner Wolf stove & double oven, quartz counters, backsplash tiles, and pantry closet. A walk-through butler's pantry offers even additional storage to the already spacious kitchen, while the peninsula with overhang provides a gathering area open to the adjoining family room.

The family room stylistically ties in to the front living room with similar wood-beamed ceiling details, while the dining room offers a custom built-in hutch designed in a transitional style that bridges the vintage & modern elements of the home. Additionally on this level is a powder room, as well as a large home office with built-in shelving, cabinetry, and drawers.

The unparalleled layout on the second level allows for four large bedrooms, along with three full bathrooms and a laundry room. No bedroom upstairs is small or shortchanged. The master suite includes two organized walk-in closets and the master bathroom includes an airjet tub, separate oversized shower, and two separate vanities with a multitude of cabinetry.

The middle bedroom includes an en-suite full bathroom. The two front bedrooms share a hall bathroom that offers a double-bowl vanity, tub and separate shower. Additionally on this level is the laundry room, complete with side by side washer and dryer, mud sink, upper & lower cabinetry & an additional storage closet.

In the lower level, a huge recreation room sits in the front of the home, providing a perfect area for kids to hang out. A fifth large bedroom allows for a guest retreat, as there is a full fourth bathroom (with steam shower) directly across the hall. In the back of the home is a fitness room area with rubber floors and a storage area.

Outside in back, you will find a yard area, as well as a paver-stoned patio section that allows for outdoor relaxing and entertaining. As you enter the home from the two car garage, there is a mud room in back for holding shoes, coats, and miscellaneous items.

Everything about this home has been intuitively designed, while striking a perfect balance between elements reflective of vintage character and newer styles. Unlike the floorplan that you find in nearly all of the other homes available, this one has been laid out differently to create a sense of uniqueness that will attract everyone and make it stand out.

Certainly the location has no competition, as you are situated on a prime residential block, yet located only 1 block off the highly sought-after Southport Corridor and only a few blocks from the prized Blaine Elementary school. There is not a better street than Southport in the city to stroll down to enjoy restaurants, shops, cafes, and outdoor dining. The brown line L stop is only a few blocks away for easy access to public transportation, while grocery shopping, kid's playlots and every day conveniences surround you. This is a truly special & unique home in an A+ location.

Welcome home.
