A colleague in my office has an amazing home for sale and I get to share it with you today. It's located in the coveted Westmorland Place neighborhood of Sugarhouse right where Sherman Ave & Glenmare St meet. It's tucked way back on the unprecedented .36 acre lot and it feels very private and secluded. In fact, this property used to be a park before the house was built in 1917. Part of the original river rock wall from that time period still stands on the property. So very cool!
This home was extensively renovated in 2005 - it was featured in that year's Parade of Homes as the "Sherman Cottage." They renovations were very careful to preserve the integrity and character of this historic home while at the same time adding modern functionality and space. They even plumbed for a swimming pool in the backyard to be added when ready! It also has a huge 3 car garage!
I had the privilege of walking through the home before it hit the market. I'll highlight some of my favorite aspects. First, I love how it sits back a bit off-set from the street. It adds to the stateliness and privacy of the home. And it truly is private. You have a view of greenery from nearly every single window on both the main and 2nd floors. And the backyard feels like the park it once was - beautiful lawns & patios surrounded by trees and sky - you forget you have neighbors. If you decide to add the pool that has been planned for - you would not lose any of that greenery. There is still plenty of room for the patio and lots of grass for dogs or football games.
The addition off the kitchen was so smart too - it provides the great room these historical homes often lack. The main floor master is excellent as well. It even has french doors leading out to the spacious front porch. The home feels like an oasis in the city. I'm so surprised someone hasn't snatched it up yet.
Some of the features - 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, approximately 5,731 square feet, 3-car garage, main-level master bedroom and laundry, with a second laundry room on the second floor, 4 fireplaces, formal dining room, tiled roof, extra refrigerated drawers, royal crown chimney tops from England & a dog shower. At at price of $1,490,000, this home is very reasonably priced for it's location and exquisite condition.
