1539 Rutland St.

This Victorian home from the early 20th century, which is being carefully and thoughtfully renovated and expanded, sits on an oversized 8,800 square foot lot. An L-shaped front porch greets the delightful Heights neighborhood and a secondary porch overlooks the side yard, which is large enough for a pool.

True to its period, there is a formal sitting room at the entry hall, but the rest of the home has been updated for today’s lifestyle. The great room is open to the kitchen, with a fabulous island, and the dining room. The master bedroom is located on the first floor and has direct access to the side porch.

The master bath has stunning custom art glass by Heights artist, Karen Farrell, original claw footed tub and Carrera marble shower and floor. Additionally, there is a guest bedroom and bath with separate entrance off the front porch. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms, each with a private bath, desk niche for two and reclaimed space under the rafters of the original roof line with reclaimed flooring of ship lap. An alley accessed garage, mudroom and large utility room complete the project.
