Welcome to 425 S. Ellwood, an absolute jewel of a home located right on lovely, bucolic Patterson Park. This gracious porch front home is not your run of the mill gray house with vinyl plank flooring. This home, which has only ever been owned by two families, is a seamless blend of original details from 1906 and stylish modern updates. As you enter from the sweet brick porch into the foyer, there is already so much to see. Just look up to see a light fixture that once belonged to Betsy Patterson, daughter of Patterson Park's namesake, William Patterson. From the foyer, you'll walk into the living room with wood floors aged to a warm patina, 9 ft. plus ceilings with intricate millwork rumored to have been crafted by famed architect, August Rogers, the home's first owner. The living room is lush and moody with deep, rich colors, a working gas fireplace, and fantastic built-in bookcases. Beyond the living room is a rare, formal dining room that was designed for entertaining. As you stand here, it's easy to imagine the many glittering dinner parties that have occured over the last 117 years. At the rear of the house is a modern, updated kitchen with plenty of storage and counterspace. If you look carefully, you can still see remnants of where the old Empire refrigerator icebox sat at the rear of the kitchen. From the first floor travel to the spacious second floor with a large rear bedroom with great closet space and entrance to the original sleeping porch. In the middle of the 2nd floor is a light and bright full bath with a skylight, subway tile, plumbing fixtures from 1906, and an elegant marble basketweave floor. At the front of the house is the huge primary suite with a second skylight, a walk-in closet, and bedroom with a lovely three window bowfront. Be sure to check out the original safe that is still in the bedroom wall. Last, but not least, is the large basement with a 3rd bedroom, complete with concrete floors, beautiful natural light from two large windows, and an office just beyond. The rear of the basement has all the storage you could want along with a washer and dryer, Baltimore flush, and rear exterior entrance. Keep this as storage or convert it to more living space. The possibilities are endless. The current owners have made many improvements, some of which include a new hybrid rubberized/asphalt roof that is less than a year old, 2 zoned heating and cooling, a rear bike locker for 4 bikes, and so much more. Special homes like this don't come along very often. Don't miss this one. **Please be sure to check out the low property taxes!
