Exquisite Victorian Home
Stately Victorian home lovingly preserved by the same family for nearly four decades! 2009 Pacific was designed by celebrated architect Samuel B. Newsom in the late 1800’s. In its 130 years, it has been occupied by only four owners.
The 6 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home was lovingly restored and refurbished, both internally and externally, by the current owners, who were enamored with the architecture and fine flourishes of the home. The owners worked closely with craftspeople and artisans to bring the home back to its glory, retaining the original details wherever possible.
The impressive entry vestibule features entirely original Victorian detailing. Two Doric columns support an arch and vaulted ceiling. Original, colorful stained- glass windows brighten the entry, and the Palladian window floods the area with natural light. Note the dentil moulding and original hand laid parquet flooring.
The formal parlor offers an expansive sitting area, fireplace, and glass paneled pocket doors separating the living room from the dining room.
The formal dining room remains entirely intact from the Victorian era and highlights the very best of wood ornamentation featuring original vaulted beam ceilings with butterfly joints, original hardwood parquet flooring, fireplace, dry bar/parson’s library, stained glass windows, and “Gingerbread” detailing in the archways.
Off the dining room is an updated kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances, abundant light, ample cabinet space, and a lovely breakfast area/great room which opens up to the dramatic south-facing yard/garden.
This level offers 4 spacious bedrooms including the elegant primary suite with walk- in closet, decorative fireplace, office/seating area, custom built ins and bathroom with double sinks. Three additional light-filled bedrooms, bathroom, and large linen closet complete this floor. (4th bedroom/office does not have a closet.)
This floor was renovated in 2022. It features 2 spacious bedrooms, an expansive media room with water views (great for entertaining), bathroom with original cast iron claw foot bathtub, original marble sink with polished chrome claw foot legs, and kitchen with brand new appliances, quartz countertops and wood cabinetry. The renovation also includes new flooring, new electrical, new copper plumbing, new insulation, and new furnace.
This level houses the laundry (side by side washer & dryer) and serves as a very large storage area and/or home gym… possible expansion potential! The lovely tiered backyard/garden can also be accessed from this level. A 1 car detached garage is located in front of the home.
The home features three original fireplaces, two with original and quintessentially Victorian ornamental tiles in earth tones. All fireplaces include the original mantels with ornate wood detailing. The upper portion of the original primary bedroom fireplace is in the basement. The dining room fireplace facade was replaced with a rich, green marble when the original material was not deemed salvageable.
The original winding set of stairs sets the tone of the home with monumental proportions and restful landings. In the Victorian era, these staircases were built to impress and make life easier. The original newel posts, balusters and railings are showcased. The runner is new Fibreworks natural fiber and jute material.
The home boasts many original, colorful stained glass “picture windows” as well as delicately-tinted beveled glass at the front entry.
All the flooring on the main floor (save the kitchen) is original to the home. The Parson’s Library features a striking Greek key pattern and diamond medallions in contrasting light and dark Oak.
The original door hardware from hinges to doorknobs has been lovingly restored. The hardware on the first two floors has been recast in polished brass. The hardware on the third floor has been stripped and hand polished to reveal the brass patina. The front door has the original face plate and locking mechanism.
