Property Description

MAJESTIC AND A PINNACLE OF BEAUTY AND PERFECTION! Once in a long while a property presents itself that is architecturally captivating and the gold standard of design excellence. Laser focused attention to every minor detail incorporating the finest quality appointments on both the exterior and interior, 611 E Gorgas Lane is a rare gem for the most discerning buyer. The current owner has spent his life working as a professional architect all over the world to include such fabulous locations as Dubai, New York, Brazil and Paris. The passion, love, insight and vision for creating masterpieces lives deep in his heart. His non negotiable approach to employ the finest of materials, the highest standard of workmanship, a deep commitment to preserve the 'soul' of a property in tandem with a recognition of the requirements needed for a modern day residence, results in transformations not often seen. Every inch is thoughtfully pondered, no stone left unturned. The patience and time involved to finalize the vision is immeasurable, the only thing that matters is that the beauty of the vision is realized. A Cira 1922 Dutch Colonial... Gorgas Lane was a diamond in the rough. An original floor plan with a sad old layout, a useless kitchen, a decrepit detached garage, 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, a dark cold attic and unfinished basement... IT EXPLODED into a showpiece of 5 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, one half bathroom, an office/exercise room, an exquisite over the top impeccably designed finished attic with a full bath, a warm and cozy spacious basement with a full bath (adding an enormous amount of additional living space) and a chef's dream kitchen come true. Throughout this residence an appreciation for the endless custom details are evident from the moment you approach the front porch, appointed with European tile extending the full length of the house and elegant custom designer lighting that encircles the entire property. Enter through the front door designed and built by an artisan to the splendor of the grand foyer, soaked in natural light and warmth. Aware that certain features of this home should be maintained to preserve it's original character, the wainscotting on the foyer wall was carefully restored to its original grandeur, reminiscent of days gone by. Restored, refinished and newly stained, red oak hardwood floors add an elegance to the feel of the entire first and second floors. The entire interior of the property is totally NEW TO INCLUDE: the roof on the house and the garage (old roof removed), beams, walls (plaster walls replaced with dry wall), double pane insulated energy efficient windows in entire house, all entry doors, plumbing, 200 amp electrical service, all interior doors and hardware, dormers, attic reconstruction, renovated full bathrooms, renovated first floor half bath, gourmet kitchen, red oak hardwood floors restored, refinished and stained, mudroom addition with new stairway to the fully finished basement with a full bath, basement laundry, new concrete, 2 HVAC systems, gas heat, lighting interior and exterior, exterior fencing, new lawn and a fabulously designed detached 2 car garage. The kitchen has 2 sets of soft close butlers doors, 2 ovens... one wall oven and one in the built-in range with cooktop, built-in microwave, range hood, stainless steel energy efficient appliances, granite countertops, ceramic tile backsplash and flooring and an island with a quartz countertop, wine refrigerator, cabinetry, plumbed for an additional sink. Breathtaking custom designed glass panels on the second level enclose a surprise room ideal for an office or exercise room. Recessed lighting galore throughout, an abundance of closet and storage space, 2 car garage and a front yard with the gift of a tree lined private rear yard. Attention to the most finite of details allows us to present 611 E Gorgas Lane as the home you will fall in love with.
