73 Rochester Avenue
73 Rochester Avenue is a custom built home that was purposely designed to blend in with the traditional looking homes of Lawrence Park. This pretty center hall home is constructed with quality material and has been impeccably maintained. The front garden beds and mature trees border the interlock walkway that leads to the covered front porch. Step inside this beautiful red brick home and marvel at the transitional floor plan and finishes.
This true to the center hall design, the living room and dining room flank off the front foyer. Both these rooms embody more traditional features for formal entertaining. Each room offers privacy with a french door entryway, hardwood floors and a big bay window. The living room has a wood burning fireplace for warmth and the dining room has wainscotting walls and a butler's door to the kitchen.
The massive kitchen has been perfectly planned. Families will enjoy the large and dedicated breakfast area for everyday meals. The main prep area of the kitchen overlooks this casual dining space. Nestled off to the side is a main floor work space and open concept pantry area. Finished with granite countertops and integrated appliances, this kitchen is ready for those who love to cook. Off the breakfast area is a main floor family room. Natural light streams in from the south facing windows and the cozy fireplace is framed with built-in shelving.
Other than the front door, the main floor has two additional exit doors. From the breakfast room a sliding glass door leads to a huge flagstone entertainer’s patio and to the backyard inground pool and spa. There is also a side door to the house leading to the mud room. This space keeps the everyday clutter out of sight and has direct access to the attached garage. The single car garage has room for additional storage, but also has the ceiling height for the addition of a car lift. Finally, the main floor is complete with a perfectly positioned powder room.
Head up stairs to the sleeping quarters. The second floor consists of a primary suite, three additional bedrooms and a bright home office, that could also be used as a smaller bedroom or nursery.
