Property Description

Come see the Earnest P. Waud House, an elegant, gleaming architectural gem! Designed by Tallmadge & Watson and built in 1915, this historic home is completely updated for modern living. Situated in the heart of the Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District and epitomizing the clean lines and graceful simplicity of the Prairie style, the open, asymmetric floor plan connects the indoors and outdoors in a natural and organic way that just feels great. Airy, light-filled interior spaces, richly stained moldings & long ribbons of windows make the interior spaces feel warm, inviting and positive. The liveable open floor plan has bright, graciously sized rooms, perfect for entertaining. Original, beautifully grained wood floors are in pristine condition and beam light throughout every room while the detailed millwork adds charm, character, and nuance. Designed around the roman brick, wood-burning fireplace, the expansive formal living room stretches out over 23 ft and is the ideal space for entertaining with enough space for large groups and intimate conversations. The office/study space on the 1st floor offers space and privacy and provides a well-lit sanctuary for work, study and relaxation. Perfectly nestled between the Living Room and Breakfast Room, you'll find the large formal Dining Room, bathed in gorgeous natural light and ready for holidays and dinner parties with family and friends. The cozy Breakfast Room is the perfect place to start your morning, offering serene views of the tranquil, park-like yard, teeming with birdlife. The updated, modern Kitchen is a true gem, featuring modern concrete countertops, stainless appliances, and a marble island, with loads of cabinet space throughout. The integrated Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf 6 burner gas stove top with double oven and Asko dishwasher imported from Sweden, all blend flawlessly into the fine cabinetry and built-ins. The result is truly spectacular, allowing the entire room to flow with clean lines, functional elegance and a zen-like calm. Upstairs, the Primary suite is huge and full of natural light. It boasts a spacious walk-in closet, a spa-like bath with heated floors, a soaking tub, and a separate shower. Three other Bedrooms are also blessed with lots of room, ample light, and generous closet space. The full basement is configured smartly with a family room, an additional bedroom perfect for guests, a soundproof music room, a full bath, and plenty of storage space in two dedicated storage rooms. Flood protection is ensured by two sump pumps. High-efficiency Buderus boiler (GB142-60) creates evenly heated living spaces. Integrated 53-gallon hot water heater for on-demand hot water with a lifetime warranty on tank. New radiant heating and control zones in Kitchen/Mudroom/PR, M Bath, and basement Music Room. This house is a 10!
