Leave it better than you found it, famously said R. Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scouts. In that spirit, the (original) owner of this radiant residence shunned the oft-chosen path of doing the bare minimum in favor of making meaningful improvements that will delight engaged buyers (the photos are wonderful evidence). Beyond the freshly-finished hardwoods, upscale lighting and list of tasteful updates, the home offers a kid-ready finished basement, sun-soaked interior, and cherished cul-de-sac spot.

Homes are like wine; the best improve with age. A sommelier’s presentation of this peerless 1920s home might read: rich, but not overbearing; surprisingly versatile; crisp and bright with warm undertones; savory from start to finish. The interior is brimming with original character, gorgeously updated (dreamy kitchen and master bathroom), and sensibly laid out. Paired with a jaw-droppingly large back yard, this residence satiates the palates of both old house devotees and new build adherents.

4 Beds/ 3 Full Baths/ 1 Half Bath
Design and décor are happy, back-slapping cousins in this blissfully comfortable home. They eschew pretension and stuffy formality in full favor of interior (and exterior!) spaces that feel dé gagé–relaxed and easy. In two years time, the owners have enriched the already-exceptional livability of the home with a series of brilliant improvements: a backyard mecca; a mouthwateringly cool, 2nd-floor office; walk-in, climate-controlled storage; and even a clever dining room conversion. Ready for show-biz!

“Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August.” J. Han. Summer has delivered on that promise in this dazzling Williamsburg cottage; not a floorboard, knob, or trim piece was left untouched in this first-class remodel. Not only are the kitchen and bathrooms beautifully renovated (as in, gutted & rebuilt to perfection), but even the lighting, carpet and paint are brand new. Refinished heart-pine floors add the right touch of warmth and character. The Valedictorian!

If this home were awarded a senior superlative, it would be the class shoe-in for “Best All-Around”: A stellar GPA (Great Proximity to Amenities). A winsome architectural style. A low maintenance, agreeable personality (an all-brick exterior and carpet-free interior). A warm, congenial disposition, enhanced by fresh updates and handsome finishes. A smart layout that’s as spacious as it is sensible. And to substantiate its humble, well-rounded character…a very compelling price. The votes are in: winner!
