Highlights include all new zoned HVAC, a delightful courtyard, a brand new kitchen and brand new baths. All the hard work and heavy lifting is done, and this gem is now waiting for you. This would make a great home or pied-a-terre and is low maintenance with durable hard coat stucco.

607 HabershamApproach this well-built home and ascend the easy-access low stoop entrance with covered front porch. The foyer features beautiful exposed brick, sumptuous refinished heart pine floors that are found throughout, and a new powder room located under the stairs. There are also great wall colors throughout.

The large combined living and dining room is located off the foyer and highlights built-ins and neighborhood views from the front of the home. The wall separating the two downstairs living and dining rooms was removed, creating a large open area showcasing two fireplaces, lovely wainscoting details and abundant wall space for artwork. At the rear of this large room is a 15-lite French door leading to the nicely re-done bricked courtyard with water feature, lovely planted beds and softly painted fencing.

The thoughtfully designed kitchen offers brand new granite countertops, handsome cabinetry and all never-been-used stainless steel appliances, including the refrigerator, smooth surface range, built-in microwave and dishwasher.

As you ascend the stairs to the bedroom level, notice again the handsome brickwork. Lots of time went into this feature, and the results are certainly worth it! Also note the outstanding heart pine flooring is also featured on the upper level, all lovingly completed by a very talented flooring craftsman. The front bedroom includes the third fireplace, good closet space, nice east facing light and a great view of neighboring architecture with onion domes and peaked roof lines. The back bedroom features the fourth fireplace and a view out back into trees and private back yards — very leafy and warm. The nicely finished new full bath is in one of the two trunk rooms upstairs; the other is a laundry room in the front.

Step back and view history — this happy row in a great neighborhood beckons you to schedule your private showing today.
