Presenting a delightful Leland cottage – a true vintage gem! This in-town residence sits on two large hillside lots, together stretching the width of a full block. Secluded and private, yet proximate to all of Leland’s most desirable amenities, this beautifully lush property offers a combination of features becoming increasingly rare in this market. The original craftsman-style cottage was built in 1911 and has since benefitted from two thoughtful additions, generously expanding the home. While the additions have made this cottage a more functional year-round residence, this home is still rich with authentic features throughout. The main floor plan seamlessly blends old and new. The footprint of the original cottage is host to the primary living areas, including a charming eat-in kitchen with checkerboard tiling, a central dining area, and an oversized living room with hardwood flooring and cedar paneling. The original field stone fireplace anchors the living room and stands opposite an enormous bank of windows which overlook a covered deck and perennial gardens in the yard below. Two main floor bedrooms flank the living areas and are each equipped with a private bathroom. The larger of the two has its own private access to a delightful front patio and would make for a spacious main floor master or guest suite. Added in 1992, a petit powder room, laundry room, and oversized single car garage give this 100-year old residence all the amenities to be expected in a newly constructed home. Upstairs, a second master suite with fireplace, three bright bedrooms and two shared bathrooms will easily accommodate your family members or vacationing guests. Mechanicals are easily accessible via the lowest level of the house, through two garage-style doors which open towards the center of the property. There is much to admire in this spectacular vintage offering – a rare slice of Leland history, ready for its next chapter!
