With only 3 owners in its 99 year history, this hidden gem in historic Belhaven is full of surprises. The colonial revival has all the charming hallmarks you would expect - rich wood floors, soaring 10 ft ceilings, floor to ceiling windows allowing abundant natural light - and some you might not. A sleek, contemporary kitchen designed by Kitchen Kreators serves as the perfect juxtaposition to the more traditional, formal entertaining spaces. In addition, a screened porch designed by an award-winning architect provides architectural interest while offering abundant outdoor entertaining space from which to admire the beautiful backyard oasis. The home effortlessly blends old and new and the result is timeless beauty. The formal dining room boasts floor to ceiling windows and custom window treatments. The formal living room also features floor to ceiling windows, as well as a fireplace and French doors to the screened porch. A light-filled sunroom adjoins the living room and overlooks one of several outdoor gathering spaces. The kitchen is truly unique and inspiring. European style cabinets in maple create a modern aesthetic and are a work of art in themselves, cleverly concealing a Bosch dishwasher, Kitchenaid icemaker, built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer drawers, pull-out pantry, appliances garage, bar, and providing beautiful yet efficient storage. The double ovens, built-in convection microwave, gas cooktop and exhaust hood are all Wolf. The countertops are a sleek quartz, and breakfast bar offers barstool seating. The maple cabinetry provides a focal point in the keeping room, housing collectibles in the open shelving on top and hiding the TV below when not in use. Both the keeping room and the living room open onto the comfortable and inviting heavy timber construction screened porch with an outdoor dining area as well as a seating area. A stylish master bedroom with fireplace is located at the top of the stairs. It offers an efficient office space with built-in desk and storage that will provide the perfect spot for household mail. The master bath boasts travertine countertops with dual sinks, a jetted tub and a separate tiled walk-in shower. Two additional bedrooms and a shared bath are also located on the second floor. But the backyard is the real treat. A brick fountain with a trio of elephants providing a constant trickle of water serves as the focal point of the lushly landscaped backyard. In addition to the screened porch, there is a covered deck made of durable, long-lasting composite decking overlooking the very private, fully-fenced backyard. There is also a small lawn, in addition to a patio area on the side of the home. With landscape lighting and numerous decorative touches including a bottle tree, the backyard is a truly magical space, especially at night. Between the screened porch, the covered porch and the backyard spaces, the opportunities for outdoor entertaining are endless. Outside the backyard privacy fence gate, a detached garage with remote garage door provides covered parking as well as additional storage. This is in addition to the guest parking in front. 782 Belhaven Street is a truly unique home you don't want to miss, on the market for the first time in 30 years.
