Take a look at this updated Kessler Park Tudor home that marries timeless elements with modern amenities. Co-listing agent Jason Saucedo called the home a “quintessential” Tudor thanks to its arched doorways, the pitch of the roof and the brick exterior.
The home was originally built in 1925 but updated extensively in 2015 to add square footage on a second level and update the home for modern lifestyles. A spacious kitchen was part of that redesign, and Saucedo said this particular element is a rarity in older homes.
“One of the things that you tend to compromise with when you buy one of these beautiful character homes is you typically get smaller spaces, smaller kitchens, smaller bathrooms,”Saucedo said, noting that the spaces in this home are on the larger side, from the kitchen to the living rooms.
The home is 3,486 square feet with four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The home’s Tudor design elements are visible from the curb at 1111 S. Canterbury Court. A pale blue, rounded front door, the pitched roof and wrap-around porch have an old-world feel updated for today.
As you step inside, a small foyer sets the downstairs living room apart from the entryway. The formal living room, which has a timeless Rookwood fireplace, is spacious and full of natural light. Picture frame molding adorns the walls and adds a decorative flair. The formal dining room sits adjacent to the living room and has access to the wrap-around patio through a set of French doors.
The home’s kitchen is crisp and bright with natural light, white cabinets and a Dutch door that leads outside. The kitchen is set beside a secondary living space that’s less formal than the living room at the front at the home.
A primary suite sits on the first floor of the home and has dual sinks in the bathroom and a large shower. A guest bedroom also sits on the first floor.
The two remaining bedrooms are on the second level along with an upstairs living room.
Saucedo said that this home is a good example of a renovation well-suited to the age of the home, making the most of the historic elements.
“One of the great parts about Kessler Park is that it tends to attract people that appreciate those things,” Saucedo said. “They tend to do the home justice and want to keep the character of the home intact.”
The home sits on 0.258 acres and has a detached garage with a studio that Saucedo said could be used for storage, as an office or converted into a guest suite.
The home at 1111 S. Canterbury Court is listed for $1,100,000 by Kathy Hewitt and Jason Saucedo of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. The home is currently under contract.
