Featured in the September edition of Metro Home in the Metropolitan Magazine! Approximately 5474 finished square feet! Set far back from Camden Ave. sits the iconic home that so many have admired. As it was sought after by its' current owners 20 years ago, this home is ready to make your dream a reality. Originally built in 1922 for Lloyd U. Watson and his family, the updates that have been recently done could make some say, "you don't look a day over 20". Enter the grounds thru the gated circular drive off Camden Ave. or off of Powell Ave. The living room, meant in the day to be the central part of the home, proven by the 5 sets of french doors leading to all other areas of the house. Two sets of the french doors are on either side of the gas fireplace and lead you to the bright and cheery sunroom to the right, one set leads you to what is currently a home office with mahogany paneled walls and curved windows, down and to your left leads you to the butlers pantry, and directly to your left is the magnificent dining room with a wood burning fireplace. An open doorway brings you to the hall leading to the turned staircase and the upper levels or continue straight ahead to the breakfast room with half bath and a door to the carriage porch. This is still used for undercover entry. Remodeled and updated, the kitchen is a cooks dream. Set on the back of the house with lovely views of the patio and outdoor fireplace, and pool, there is still the original wood floor along with all of todays kitchen trends. A wine cubby, glass doored cabinets, granite counters, butlers pantry with bar sink and even more cabinetry, and has a gas oven/range that was placed there because when doing the reno, they found that was where the kitchen chimney was from long ago. Every detail was considered in all the remodels to keep true to the period of the home! There is also the 2nd staircase that leads up to one of the bedrooms. However, the primary bedroom is close to the main staircase and was totally redone, adding 2 walk in closets and updating the primary bath with large, step in tiled shower, wainscoting, and a long, double bowl vanity. Tucked away, there is a lovely sitting room separated by a french door; perfect for reading and relaxing while taking in the backyard view. Three more bedrooms are on the 2nd floor, one has the 2nd attached full bath, and another full hall bath makes a total of 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths on that floor. On the 3rd level is great finished space for guests to visit, or more family to stay full time... There's privacy and the 4th full bath for quiet and comfort. Off the kitchen are the steps to the basement that is both utilitarian and fun! Three porcelain soaking sinks in the washer / dryer area and tons of space in the workshop and storage room. Or have some fun and play on your regulation pool table in your rec room area w/ceramic tiled floor and wood paneling and built ins, and another room currently used for work out equipment . There's a half bath down there and steps to new basement patio doors that lead outside to the patio, pool, garage and fireplace! The saltwater pool with up lighting is surrounded by privacy shrubs, and has an electric cover to keep the leaves out and make it safe year round. Last year, the owner's built a huge, outdoor, brick fireplace; now for your enjoyment! Get cozy on the slate hearth and warm up on cool fall nights! Enjoy every minute of every season whether inside or out in this glorious home and property. And so central to all Salisbury has to offer! Walking distance to Salisbury University and Local Eateries, as well as close to Tidal Health Hospital and Downtown. I can't think of a thing this house doesn't offer!! It's your turn, don't miss this opportunity!!
