Comments: Welcome to 560 Shawmont Avenue, a stunning and completely renovated home. This property is located in the quiet hills of upper Roxborough and sits on just under ½ acre. The generous interior provides approximately 4,000 square feet of living space. As you turn onto the newly paved driveway, enjoy the convenience of an oversized detached 2-car garage, perfect for additional storage needs. The exterior of the home has been completely reimagined, seamlessly blending historic character with contemporary architectural elements such as a new standing seam metal roof, energy efficient Andersen 400 windows, and handsome board and batten siding. As you approach the entry, a gracious wraparound porch welcomes all who arrive and offers an ideal space to enjoy breezy evenings surrounded by beautiful mature trees and freshly planted greenery. Step through the grand custom Mahogany door and find yourself transported to a distinguished and elegant interior. On the right is the formal sitting room, which features the original plaster ceiling medallion and an artistic installation of one of the home’s original radiators. On the left is a dream chef’s kitchen complete with double stacked cabinetry, 11’ coffered ceiling, high-end quartzite countertops, Thermador appliances, built-in banquette seating, and a custom desk area perfect for WFH meetings. Just beyond the kitchen is the living room fit out with surround sound, a dramatic 80” 3-sided modern fireplace, custom wet-bar with wine racks, mini-fridge, built-in cabinetry, 11’ coffered ceiling and double sliding glass doors that lead to the spacious rear deck and yard with ample space if a pool is desired! Completing the first floor is a versatile mudroom and powder room tucked just off of the living room and rear deck. On the 2nd floor you’ll find a light-filled secondary bedroom, gorgeous marble bathroom with spa tub and as well as a conveniently located enclosed laundry alcove. Facing the rear yard, enjoy the privacy of your well-appointed primary suite complete with a luxury bathroom, generous walk-in closet and dedicated deck ideal for morning coffee or yoga. The 3rd floor offers a front facing bedroom that can serve as a home office or guest room and you’ll be stunned by the impressive rear bedroom which could be utilized as a flex or play room and features a vaulted beadboard-clad ceiling and another private deck! The home also features a full height unfinished basement with newly poured cement floor just waiting for anything you can imagine. Throughout the home classic details abound - coffered ceilings, stately trim and casework, and custom railings all work to create a home that is at once contemporary and timeless. Dual high efficiency HVAC systems provide optimal comfort for every season, in-wall speakers throughout the house are pre-wired for smart-home devices. To top it all off the house also includes a 10-year tax abatement (pending approval).
