A Colonial Beauty
For some love takes time and for others a mere glance is enough. Mark's passion for his home needed no patience and was sealed by the divine moldings, beautiful high ceilings, and striking rooms. Simply put the home exudes a sense of grandeur and grace seen in the entry foyer flanked by the splendid dining room. And while many dream of changing quirks of their loved ones and fail, Mark succeeded because he could envision the potential of this 1920s beauty although it had not seen any updates since the 1960s.
He did a number of renovations including designing a chef-inspired kitchen with white Shaker-style cabinetry and custom upper cabinets that reach the 10’ ceilings. Then he made old new with a travertine lead walk, refinished hardwood floors, period sconce lighting, half bath on the main level, and designer bathrooms. And if that had not been enough to seal the entanglement, the siren call of the yard would have: Set on a 7,600 foot lot the captivating garden oasis is anchored by towering oak trees and a gorgeous enclosed porch. As a realtor, many homes have called Mark's name, but not till this 1921 Wardman Colonial Home beckoned was he ready to settle down.
