Situated on Town Creek, this three-level colonial home with an eye-catching cedar shake siding exterior design, a welcoming front porch, a delightful court yard garden, multiple balconies that boast serene water views, and a private pier is definitely worthy of admiration—a dream home that embodies architecture at its finest. The property, which was listed on April 20, 2017, closed on December 14, 2017.
Since the home’s exterior design is so captivating, it’s not surprising that the interior spaces are equally impressive. Indeed, superior craftsmanship coupled with exquisite architectural detailing create an interior design that is absolutely breathtaking. The charming home features a stunning main-level open floor plan that seamlessly blends the kitchen, dining, and living areas into one common space, creating an easy flow. Dramatic ceiling heights and numerous oversized doors and windows further enhance this sense of openness and provide a welcoming, light-filled atmosphere. And teak wood flooring throughout the home’s interior spaces adds a touch of absolute elegance.
On the second level, a spectacular catwalk, which is accessed by an exquisite staircase, beautifies the home’s interior and reinforces the feeling of openness established on the main level. A relaxing retreat, the elegant master bedroom features a spacious walk-in closet, and the spa-like master bath with an expanded dual sink vanity, a soaking tub, and a separate glass shower is absolutely luxurious. The home also includes a recreation room, which can serve as a bedroom, on the third level. And, of course, a waterfront home simply would not be complete without features that maximize the water views. Balconies are located on all three levels, and these lovely spaces offer ideal settings to relax and simply enjoy the tranquil views.
“I loved showing this home,” says Cornelia C. Heckenbach of Long and Foster Christie’s, the listing agent for the property. “The exterior blends so nicely in the historic town of Oxford. The front porch is clearly designed for rocking chairs and mint juleps, and the waterside porch is perfect for taking an afternoon nap during the summer or watching the sailboats. The tall folding doors form the open kitchen/dining/family room, and when opened, the outdoors becomes part of the living space. The contemporary interior with many oversized glass doors brings the exterior inside and creates wonderful lighting. There is a sleepy courtyard garden, and I always envisioned myself sitting there with my morning tea. It’s a very happy, sun-filled home.”
