Enjoy the loft-like ambiance of this super-bright, single family townhouse located in the verdant suburb of Cambridgeport.
R.E. Taxes: $3,427.20/FYR2011 with residential exemption.
A wall of glass floods the main living area with natural light and lends an unprecedented sense of space to the room.
With such high ceilings an upper-wall mounted air conditioning unit delivers cool air-flow throughout the main living space.
Unique to the living-room area is a custom, built-in, floor-to-ceiling open shelving system that formerly held the TV, audio system, etc.
An open stairway with wire stringers and steel handrail + posts... delivers you to the open kitchen/dining area above.
The 2nd level open kitchen/dining area has been newly finished with Brazilian Cherry hardwood flooring.
The kitchen design features wood-paneled cabinetry, a generous breakfast bar with overhead hanging pot-rack and a river rock floor-tiling finish.
Granite counters and a faux steel tile backsplash, which continues above the upper cabinets, creates a kitchen workspace as beautiful as it is functional.
All stainless steel appliances include refrigerator, gas oven/range, over-the-range microwave, dishwasher and disposal.
Adjacent to the breakfast bar is a glass-paneled door which opens out onto the balcony/deck.
The 2nd floor balcony/deck puts you "in" amongst the surrounding trees a perfect outdoor retreat.
The balcony/deck is also an ideal grilling venue when entertaining visiting friends and guests with a BBQ lunch or dinner.
Adjoining the open kitchen/dining area is a stairway leading up to the 3rd level of the townhouse.
The 3rd level houses the rest of the home's amenities, i.e., 2 bedrooms and a full bathroom.
A skylight floods the stairway and 3rd level living area with natural light.
The 1st-of-2 bedrooms is large enough to accommodate a king-size bed with side tables and features an operable window, a wall-unit AC and a ceiling fan for additional airflow.
The 1st-of-2 bedrooms also includes a wall of built-in closets and a skylight, which can be opened for airflow and darkened with shades.
The full bathroom features a super-bright skylight, a suspended washbasin with steel frame + glass tray, mirrored cabinet and wide open shelving for towels, etc.
The full bathroom includes a tub/shower unit with tile tub surround.
The full bathroom is also finished with a unique river rock flooring.
Unlike the 2nd floor kitchen/dining room, the 3rd floor living area is finished in Oak hardwood flooring throughout.
The 2nd-of-2 bedrooms is distinguished by cathedral ceilings and operable upper and lower windows.
The 2nd bedroom can also accommodate a king-size bed with side tables and additional furniture pieces.
A built-in, twin sliding-door closet completes the 2nd bedroom design.
Traversing the stairway back down to the 2nd floor level open kitchen/dining area.
Diagonally opposite the stairway is the entrance to a half-bathroom on the kitchen/dining area level.
The half-bathroom features a wooden storage cabinet with open shelf above the toilet.
A custom vanity, wall mirror, bright task-lighting and river rock floor tiling complete the half-bathroom design.
The view back towards the main living space below the open kitchen/dining area.
Heating, cooling and ventilation throughout the townhouse is via a series of wall-mounted air conditioning units, ceiling fans and hot water baseboards.
A glass-paneled door opens from the main living room to stairs that lead down to a private outside patio area.
The private outdoor patio area is fenced-in and finished with loose pebbles and decorative flower beds.
The clapboard siding of the townhouse has been treated for weather resistance and durability.
Most of the lighting featured throughout the townhouse is ceiling-mounted, recessed cans.
The Cherry wood steps leading down from the 1st level living area to the front door entrance foyer.
The entrance foyer continues the durability theme of being finished with river rock floor tiling.
The entrance foyer can also be accessed from within the garage.
Leading down from the back of the garage is a large, finished basement and utility room, which houses the gas-fired hot water system and boiler for the hot water baseboards.
The basement/utility room is air-conditioned, has a window, is finished with concrete flooring and provides plenty of storage space.
The basement/utility room also serves as the laundry facilities, featuring a full-size stack washer/dryer unit.
The one (1) car garage has additional space within for storage and is accessed via electronically controlled roller door.
The twin-door entrance (one glass, the other solid wood), to number 4 Fort Washington Place.
