This "True" North End hip-roofed colonial impresses with extensive upgrades and clear attention to detail by the current owner! Enter the front door and step into the impressive foyer that features a winding grand staircase, gorgeous trim details and gleaming oak floors. A formal, but comfortable, paneled dining room connects to a large screen porch. A butler's pantry and wet bar lead to an expansive chef's kitchen which includes a 10 ft. island with a 48" Dacor double oven range as a center piece. Loaded with cabinets, a generous window seat, and a gas fireplace in the eat-in area, this space is made for entertaining with glass doors that open to a patio and fenced-in flat lawn; the setting of many summer parties past and future! A large front-to-back fireplaced living room, where past US Presidents have addressed the neighbors, connects to a bright sunroom with an Italian frieze fireplace and coffered linen ceilings. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms, a tiled bathroom, and large primary bedroom suite with wood fireplace and new bathroom which includes a tile and glass oversized shower and double sink vanity. Top floor has a 5th bedroom and full bathroom-perfect for guests, office or a workout room! Radiant floor heat, whole house speakers, irrigation, a high efficiency Buderus boiler and Craftsman-era architectural details, all on a large double lot, close to Stark Park and within walking distance to all the cultural happenings in Manchester, make this a spectacular elegant home.
