If you hear these words- 'It's my favorite house in all of Millbrook!' you can be sure they refer to this home On the Avenue. Originally built in 1910, this exquisitely tasteful and welcoming home on nearly half an acre will turn your wishes into reality. The recent renovations maintained the important period touches while upgrading and modernizing. The south-facing wall-sized panel of glass in the family room is a stylish upgrade of smaller, individual sash windows. An entirely new kitchen, from ample cabinets to brand-new Samsung appliances, with the soapstone countertops and central island, is ideally situated in the heart of the house. The second floor offers three bedrooms, three baths (one half-bath is downstairs), and an office/gym space. All the bathrooms are updated and elegant. An original claw-foot tub with all-new fittings in one contrasts charmingly with the sleek walk-in showers in the other two bathrooms. Outdoors, a wrap-around porch bordered by hydrangeas and boxwood offers a view of the village happenings along Franklin Ave. But the most magical space at On the Avenue is the back property. Fully fenced and lovingly designed and tended, the back garden offers places to rest, places to entertain and gather, and room to create new spaces in the future...even a pool. A sunken terrace is rimmed by flawless stone walls, just the right height for sitting on. Some highlights among the truly unique and beautiful plantings include a Japanese maple in the corner of the front yard, admired by all who pass by, as well as, of course, the Anabelle hydrangea and several limelight hydrangea trees in the back. Columnar Cooper beech trees add a refined touch along the side of the property, climbing roses curtain the entire western wall of the garage, and pear and apple espaliers divide one outdoor 'room' from another.
