Description

Step into the timeless charm of this 1887-built home at 96 Holmes Avenue. The home's many recent improvements include a new roof, a new gas boiler, and new/newer appliances, adding modern convenience to its classic appeal. With 5 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, this residence offers a spacious 2347 square feet of living space, nestled on a generous .52 acre lot. Approaching the home, the newly rebuilt wrap-around porch which includes a screened portion, sets the tone for what's to come. A welcoming foyer and first floor with 9ft ceilings, victorian window mouldings and extra wide original pocket doors create an inviting and airy atmosphere. The main level features a thoughtfully designed layout, ideal for both entertaining and everyday living. The second & 3rd floors not only house the 5 bedrooms but also offer a dedicated office space, providing a perfect setting for remote work or study. The property also includes a partially finished basement, ample storage space, lovely perennials, a new enclosed vegetable garden and a detached garage. Experience the allure of this historic home, where modern updates harmonize with its original character, creating a truly special place to call home. Close to all Darien amenities, including train and schools. And be sure to ask for the lengthy improvement list. No flood insurance required. HOUSE FULLY AVAILABLE!
