2411 Davis Avenue is a splendid example of a well maintained, improved and expanded Craftsman Bungalow. Purchased in 2001, the present owners have thoughtfully created a welcoming home with generous spaces and calming Japanese garden. The broad gabled roof with overhang, exposed structural roof rafters and knee braces top the shingle and clapboard residence while a wide deep front porch dressed with tapered battered columns defines the exterior. Even the closed front railing of the porch exhibits the boundary between outdoor and indoor space. A winding stone front stair from the driveway to the porch is complemented by the low-maintenance plantings embracing the façade of the home and sets the tone for delights found within. Step into this Braddock Heights beauty and feel the essence of this early 20th century abode with all the 21st century joys! Archways join formal rooms with a hallway leading to two main level bedrooms and full bath. In keeping with Craftsman structures, glorious built-ins including window seat, drawers and closets frame a window in one bedroom; a reading bench is tucked beneath the ascending red oak stair and an intimate breakfast nook with benches and mango wood table offer the perfect respite for casual dining and enjoying the unique garden. The kitchen elicits joy not only in its layout on cork flooring and appliances but in the cheerful backsplash tile. Exceptional appliances include a Viking gas stove, Bosch dishwasher and Jenn-Aire refrigerator. Counters are custom soapstone or mango wood with maple custom cabinetry, soft close drawers, two appliance âgarageâ cabinets and xenon under cabinet lighting. Storage is abundant. Julia Child would be ecstatic here! Crowning the home is a second story primary suite addition. This idyllic haven for sleeping encourages retreat with its own corner reading nook, built-in desk, bookcase and table as well as enviable primary bath. Stained glass windows and a bank of clear story windows add to the ambiance of this refuge, further enhanced by an organized walk-in closet with all the bells and whistles and a sky-lit primary bath including heated flooring, over-sized shower, pedestal sink, dressing table inset and water closet. Even the laundry is located on this level. Quietly concealed in the basement are the utilities servicing the home including a 75 gallon water heater and boiler. With good head height, parts of this area could be finished for additional use but presently serves as wood working space and storage. If you are searching for the ultimate in serenity, step into the Japanese garden where a bluestone patio awaits and extends to river rock dry stream paths surrounded by planting beds leading to a tea house replete with shoji screen doors and Ipe porch. Cedar, cypress, mahogany and redwood are prevalent throughout as is a delightful mix of creeping ground covers, ferns, bamboo, Japanese maple, dwarf conifers and a large variety of perennials. The garage as well has been refreshed to reflect the serene adjacent Japanese vista. The carefully contemplated improvements are widespread and too numerous to list but an accounting of them is available for your perusal. Just ask! Finally, the location of this unique property caps its assets. Within easy reach of schools, churches and shopping while quietly tucked into a stable neighborhood of congenial neighbors reached along sidewalks and friendly streets, itâs a forever residence awaiting you!
