Property Description

Pelham Road is a very special street in a unique and wonderful neighborhood. All of the houses were built by well known architects in the late 1800s to early 1900s. Each house is an architectural gem. 15 Pelham Road is no exception! Colonial revival in style, this brick home is set above the street with an inviting front porch and entrance. There is a large welcoming entrance room filled with decorative period details which include matching coat alcoves, mahogany doors and an ornamental staircase. The Living room boasts oak double pocket doors, a Mercer tile fireplace, a fanlight window and built-in bookshelves. The Dining room has oak paneled wainscotting, built-in china cabinets and a door to the outside covered porch with a flagstone patio floor. These rooms complete a stunning layout, perfect for entertaining! BUT, that is not all! The Parlor, a Family Gathering room off the Kitchen and the Den complete the main floor layout. (The Den, with a separate entrance, was once used as a doctors office for the original owner). The Kitchen stainless steel appliances include a glass top 4 burner electric range, single built-in oven with convection, microwave and dishwasher. There is also a mud room and a side door to the driveway and separate garage. The Palladian window on the landing to the second floor is a perfect place to relax and enjoy a quiet moment.
