Spectacular 1921 Belmont Heights Craftsman with design and restoration inspired by Charles and Henry Green’s iconic Culbertson House. The house exhibits many traditional features from the Arts & Crafts movement, along with a mix of unique and beautiful elements including the thoughtful landscaping, organic color palette, custom solid iron work, and the striking green glazed Ludowici ceramic tile roof. The restoration was performed to first maximize preservation of period elements; such as the oversized, quarter sawn tiger oak front door, quarter sawn white oak floors, superb original mouldings and doors, and original Batchelder floral-themed fireplace tiles. In addition, the owner tastefully incorporated many of today’s modern conveniences, including period correct wood sash dual glazed windows and one lite French doors, thoughtful art lighting and fixtures, forced air and heat, and full rewire with 200 amp electrical service. The kitchen is highlighted by custom stained white oak Shaker style cabinets, upscale stainless steel appliances, eat-at bar, and center island with sink. The family room features a voluminous coffered ceiling, tiled fireplace, and access to the spacious outdoor patio and garden showcasing curated plantings and multiple old growth fruit trees. The garage is oversized and offers 2 additional off street parking spaces and built-in storage. This house presents itself as rare opportunity for a buyer to purchase one of the most refined designs to ever become available in the area.
