The stately exterior of 1518 State St. gives clues to the quiet elegance to be found inside this $2.225 million Uptown residence.
Simple yet eye-catching details hide in plain sight on this two-story dwelling, from the graceful arch over the glass front doors to the oval multi-paned window tucked onto the second floor above the wraparound porch that shades floor-to-ceiling windows.
And while immaculate landscaping completes the street-facing image of a welcoming home, the interior abounds with warmth and character.
With five bedrooms, four full and two half baths, the home sports almost 4,400 square feet of living space on an almost 8,000-square-foot lot steps away from St. Charles Avenue.
Gleaming wood floors lie throughout the foyer, the soaring stairs and elegant living room, which features a black marble fireplace and large windows. The floors continue into the formal dining room and parlor (currently used as a music room) and onto a diminutive sun room with access to a powder room.
From the dining room, two doors access the kitchen and breakfast area. The inviting kitchen features commercial-quality appliances with a functional layout, voluminous storage and marble counters.
Slate floors from the kitchen and breakfast area lead to the roomy den, which features a wall of windows looking out to the side garden. A marble-surround fireplace is flanked by built-in shelves and cabinets. And just off the den is a wet bar with wine cabinet, glass shelves and access to the upper floors.
The private quarters on the second floor include five bedrooms, with the spacious primary bedroom having access to two en suite baths. A second bedroom also features an ensuite bath, while two of the other bedrooms share a hall bath.
A fifth bedroom, located at the rear of the floor, has a half bath and generous amount of built-in storage. The current homeowners use this and one of the other bedrooms as inviting offices, with plentiful space for casual seating in each.
The baths feature elegant marble tilework, glass showers and contemporary fixtures with classic lines.
The home also features a whole-house generator and elevator, tankless water heater, sprinkler system, surround sound and a heated and chilled pool, plus a 2019 roof.
