May 30, 2012

Van Brunt Boulevard is one of the Indian Mound Neighborhood’s showcase parkways. Between the Avenue and Gladstone Boulevard, it is lined with homes ranging in architectural styles from cozy Bungalows to stately Neo-Colonials that have been in old line Northeast families for decades.

This week’s feature home is located a stone’s throw off of St. John at 120 Van Brunt Blvd. and is listed by Bill and Jim Lawless of Northeast Realty.

This four bedroom, 2.5-bath home is an immaculate brick modified Shirtwaist oozing with original charm and packed with amenities. The present owners note that the home has been part of their family for over 60 years and that pride of ownership shows at every turn.

The front door enters in to a huge front foyer flanked by a spacious living room on one side and a large dining room on the other. Original features have a commanding presence in each room, which includes a huge, quarter-sawn golden oak built-in china and silver cabinet in the dining room and the original wood-burning fireplace equipped with operational gas-logs in the living room. The kitchen has been updated and is large enough for entertaining the largest family gathering. A spacious den has been tastefully added to the back of the home along with a half bath for extra convenience. Upstairs, off the center hall plan, there are four large bedrooms and a huge master bath that’s been updated from top to bottom for today’s modern lifestyles.

Mechanically, this home is thoroughly updated and turn-key for the new owner. Hardwood floors lie under the wall-to-wall carpets and are in very good condition. The plumbing and electrical systems have both been updated completely and, according to the present owner, very carefully. A brand new, single layer composition roof protects the entire house from the elements and storm windows ensure that the inside is comfy in the cold weather as well as the heat of summer. Fully outfitted with central heat and air conditioning add year-round comfort, too! An additional bath has even been added in the unfinished full basement and a large, two-car garage is out back for secure vehicle storage.  

One trip through this fantastic Van Brunt Boulevard home and you’ll appreciate its fine appointments and the seamless melding of functional updates and old world charm. Don’t wait. The owners have reduced the price again on this lovely Indian Mound home. Give Bill or Jim Lawless a call at Northeast Realty. They can be reached at (816) 231-8442.
