Welcome to 5700 Main Street in Mt Jackson, VA. Built in 1933, this nearly 2, 000 sq. ft brick home is a classic Craftsman bungalow. Elegant arches frame the tile-covered front porch, encouraging you to sit and watch the world go by, and a portico beckons you up the paved driveway to a beautifully-landscaped back yard and 3-bay garage with original carriage doors. An enclosed back porch welcomes you to sit and watch the season change on Short Mountain. The interior of the home has original American chestnut woodwork and floors, pristine art deco fixtures throughout, and a large fireplace with a custom-made wood burning insert and Carrara marble mantle.The pulled plaster medallions in the living room, dining room, upstairs master, and TV room (or downstairs master) set off deco chandeliers and deco milk glass lighting fixtures to perfection. 20+~ Crown moldings of pulled plaster trace the 9-1/2~ ceilings on the main level. The walls and ceilings are sculptured plaster ~ indicative of 1930~s design. In a nod to the 21st century, energy-efficient, low-E windows and outside doors were installed in 2015 and 2016. The over-sized front door has 15 panes of original beveled glass and two sidelights each with 5 panes of the same beveled glass. You enter a large living room from the covered front porch area. From the living room, walk through a wide cased opening with French doors into a lovely dining room ~ perfect for both formal and informal gatherings, and into a fully renovated kitchen with custom cabinetry, glass tile backsplash, quartz counter tops, and top-of-the-line Jen-Aire appliances with Energy Star ratings. It is a delightfully bright space, conducive to creating special meals! Off the living room the current TV room/office can be converted into a master suite with bath with original cast iron sink and a deep garden tub/shower combo, and linen closet. Adjacent is an office area with a separate entrance from the portico area of the driveway. This space would also be a cozy sitting or library area, completing a perfectly private area. There are three large bedrooms on the second floor with walk-in closets, and a fully-renovated bathroom (with original cast iron sink and bathtub) and ample linen storage.The home has been re-piped, and a new soft water system has been installed along with a new, Energy Star-rated hot water heater. The unfinished basement is large, dry and has plenty of built-in storage cabinets and shelving, furnace, washer and dryer, along with a second stove/range and refrigerator. There is outside access through double doors leading back to the driveway, garage, and parking area. With .45 acre, the property, with nature in mind, has large garden areas with carefully curated perennial plants. The back yard features a multi-level patio area planting beds, and a 100-gallon fountain. A lighted pergola overhangs an outdoor kitchen area with built-in cedar cabinets, smoker/grill, sink, and Pennsylvania bluestone counters.With only three owners since it was built, this very special home has been lovingly maintained and improvements have kept the original aesthetic in mind. It begs you to come in and make this house your home!
