Welcome to this classic home known as Fostoria Crest! Lovingly cared for since it was constructed in 1937, this charming home has been updated several times while honoring its original character. Dormering the roof has provided more square footage for personal quarters and reconfiguring the main level by removing walls, expanding the kitchen and adding a family room has given more gathering space. All elements of the work have been carefully crafted to maintain the historical specificity, scale and quality of the home's original cape cod design. From the cheery whitewashed red brick that graces the structure on all four sides, to the HardiePlank siding of the expanded upper floor's dormers, to the four porches, this home welcomes you to enjoy its charm-filled interiors and huge, park-like gardens. The original oak flooring has been stunningly refinished and first floor bath is detailed with classic white and black tiles. Eight over eight true divided pane windows and new French doors bring in tons of light on the main level, while new double-paned windows and two sky lights flood the second floor with sunshine. The gourmet kitchen is complete with Jenn-Air stainless steel appliances, with the stove, large capacity GE wine fridge and seating built into the custom cabinetry, Silestone-topped penninsula. Open shelving with beautiful corbel supports and cabinet pull-outs provide maximum storage space. Orignal cabinets and double aproned refinished cast iron country sink have smartly been incorporated into the new custom cabinetry. A pull-out island has been cleverly incorporated into the penninsula for even more working surface and storage. Enjoy the connectedness of the kitchen/family room combination, which features French doors that lead to the deep, wide back yard of almost a quarter acre. The living room and dining room are open to each other through a broad doorway. The fireplace becons you to enjoy cozy nights by the fire, while the adjacent screened in porch invites you to enjoy quiet nights relaxing and admiring the large landscaped side and back yards. A first floor bedroom and bath provide for daily use or for extra guest space. The details continue! Original five-panel doors from the first floor rework have been incorporated into the second floor design, including pocket doors that lead into two walk-in closets and laundry area. Architect-designed French doors that stack behind each other open up to close off the loft-like open space. A large ensuite bath with huge, classic white subway tiled shower complete with hand-selected carrera marble seating and two deep storage shelves, along with a custom designed curving shower curtain and double pedestal sinks, provide a spa-like experience. Beautiful Kohler fixtures, sinks and toilet round out the charm. The primary bedroom two walk-in closets and laundry area have lots of custom storage, and each has a large new window. The bedroom has ample space for a king sized bed and multiple seating or dressing areas, and has four new double-paned windows and two skylights. The second bedroom has two closets as well, and the far end is graced with original stunning quarter round windows, and two additional new windows. A new easy-care driveway and custom accent fencing complete with weathered copper-topped posts welcome you at the front of the property. The back gardens are graced with delightful pathways that lead to a pregola, pond, and multiple seating and dining areas. This lovely home is located in one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Arlington, at the flat crest of a hill, with a southern exposure, on a quiet, short side street just over a block to the quaint Westover Village amenities, including restaurants, the post office, an old-time hardware store, beer garden and more.
