Beautiful Victorian on quiet Elmwood Avenue in lovely, historic Slabtown. Located just on the west edge of town, walk & bike to everything, just 500' from Slabtown beach. This ideally located downtown home features the perfect combination of modern upgrades (open and modern kitchen with loads of natural light) and original, storied trim work exclusive to these treasured Traverse City Victorians. Grand, original tall base, doors, mortise locks, heavy trim and very large- for- the- era double hung windows wash this charming space with light. Main level and upper level have tall ceilings. Marble counters and a large island grace the kitchen. A walk-in pantry and a functional mix of cabinetry and open shelving; all in an open concept layout, located next to the large dining area. Off of the dining room is a large living room with huge windows and a fireplace. Spacious main-floor master off of the living room. You'll appreciate the large mudroom off of the back door as well. Kitchen and mudroom have radiant floor heat keeping your house clean and toes warm in the winter. Two open hardwood staircases lead to the upper level, where you'll find a large landing (nice home office or sitting area space), a large laundry room utilizing granite tops, custom shelving, original built-in cabinetry, with 4 additional bedrooms & two bathrooms. A finished basement space currently functions as a family room/home theater area. New 3.5 car garage with workshop, & planned for living space above which is presently framed in with electric, waiting for your final touches.
