If you appreciate a MID-CENTURY VIBE, you’re gonna LOVE this home! But don’t get TOO carried away – the cool furnishings don’t convey! Slated to be a “centerpiece” of Historic Fredericksburg Foundation (HFFI)’s first-ever mid-century homes tour (put on a pandemic hold til 2022) this original 1956-built rambler was remodeled around 2004-05 to add a large open concept kitchen & family room (dining room for current owners), replaced the roof & renovated the 2-car garage, added patios, greenhouse & shed, front retaining wall, driveway, and extensive professional landscaping. Mid-century enthusiasts themselves, the current owners have preserved the authenticity of the original 3 bedroom, 1 bath home, while repurposing period materials to extend their vision & incorporating newer materials & features for convenience & comfort. The original hall bath retains its 1950s black & white tile and cast iron tub, while a steel framed cabinet with curved doors & cast iron with porcelain coated sink (& complementary toilet) complete the room. The newer 3-piece 2nd bath, added with the renovation, has a roomy waterfall shower, period tile, and a vintage 1964 American Standard Gracelynn sink; plumbing was replaced in 2020. The spacious, sky-lit, open concept kitchen features an oversized slate countertop island, with 5-burner gas cooktop, along with stainless steel wall oven, refrigerator, and dishwasher. The kitchen and separate open, sky-lit dining room (current use by Sellers; added as a family/great room as part of the early 2000s addition) – feature beautiful bamboo flooring and 9′ ceiling. So what about that rock ‘n roll study?! Yes! Between the living room and kitchen (with one step down into the kitchen) there’s a separate area where the current owners swoon to Sinatra! You may want to use it as a study area, open library, extension of your living room, or perhaps as a breakfast or dining room (former owners’ use). Or maybe you’ll wanna roll back the rug, kick off your shoes, put on your favorite records, and rock to the peppermint twist! Has this past 2 years seen you working from home – and now have you loving the option but needing a dedicated space? We have the PERFECT solution! Just steps out your kitchen door, past the 2-car garage, walkway and one of your patios (this one with a pergola), there’s a SEPARATE fully-conditioned, hardwired and wireless wi-fi OFFICE/STUDIO! But you might have to toss a coin over just which one of you gets to claim it! Across the expansive, fenced-in back yard, there’s your own insulated, recently rebuilt & freshly painted greenhouse. (And I’m not tellin’ WHAT you might decide to grow there!) Outdoor living, gardening, and entertainment areas ABOUND on this 0.42 ac slice of paradise! With its own Master Gardener’s loving care and enhancement, the landscaping and vegetation have absolutely FLOURISHED! (See attached DOCUMENTS for PDF of summer gardens in bloom.) You’ll find: a fenced vegetable garden, herb garden, flower garden, small goldfish pond, compost bins, rain barrels, perennial shrubs and bushes. Do you love fruit trees? How ’bout 2 apple, 2 pear, fig, & plum? PLUS, grapevines, rhubarb, assorted berries, kiwi, a perennial pollinator garden … and MORE! Did I say MORE? Yes, there’s also an RV parking pad with 30 amp power (no, theirs isn’t for sale!). We’re even offering a HOME WARRANTY. There’s NO HOA. You’re just steps away from the City’s Rappahannock Canal Path & Heritage Trail, the Scenic Rappahannock River & Outdoor Center; and you’re mere minutes to shopping (including the new Fredericksburg Food Co-Op), schools, medical facilities, downtown … c’mon, you’re in the CITY, but perched above Linden Ave, on a super private lot, in arguably one of the coolest mid-century homes in the Village, if not in the City itself!nWhat are you waiting for?
