A unique and immaculate home, 27 Meriam Street offers a prime location, meticulously renovated to fit the needs of today’s lifestyle with striking details at every turn. The exterior charms in true Queen Anne fashion with bay windows, rounded turrets, and decorative balconies as lovingly maintained gardens surround the wide front porch. 

The front foyer is welcoming as the study draws you in on the left, accented by curved walls lined with built-in shelving and double windows for peaceful views of the front landscape. A wood burning fireplace provides a cozy place to curl up with a good book.

Sunlight streams through the large bay of windows in the formal living room featuring dentil molding and shining hardwood floors. A seamless transition flows into the family room, mirroring the same gracious details of the living room with hardwood floors and lovely dentil molding. The wood burning fireplace provides a visual centerpiece with a stylish white mantel.

Enjoy sweep-around views from the heated sunroom with walls of glass, an easy connection with the front porch, and slate floor tiles to smooth the transition to and from the outdoors.

Share special meals in the elegant formal dining room with another wood burning fireplace for ambiance and style. A decorative arch adorns a bay of windows welcoming the sunshine as wainscoting, crown molding, and gleaming hardwood floors encircle the beautiful space. A gorgeous china cabinet with glass-fronted upper cabinetry offers the perfect space to showcase your fine dinnerware.

The gourmet, open concept kitchen is a true show-stopper with an open floor plan, high-end stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, an oversized center breakfast bar island with pendant lighting above, a gas cooktop, subway tile backsplash, stylish white cabinetry, butler’s pantry, beverage refrigerator, ice machine, crown molding, recessed lighting, and shining hardwood floors. The spectacular kitchen spills further beyond opening to an open concept informal dining area with walls of windows. A sliding French door from the dining area connects to the side entry and half bathroom with a pedestal sink and beadboard accents.

Even the laundry room impresses, perfectly situated for multi-tasking while managing family life and featuring a sink, overhead cabinetry, extra pantry storage, and an easy transition to the mudroom. Step out to a secret patio area surrounded by lattice work for added privacy. The mudroom, lined with cabinetry and beadboard trim, provides convenient access to the home’s generous two-car garage. The garage offers a charging system for an electric vehicle, which may be the perfect excuse to buy a Tesla once you move in.

Outdoor living is easy amidst the stunning grounds accented by multi-level hardscaping and lush perennial gardens. Be the envy of the neighborhood with your very own fully fenced sport court to keep the kids entertained for hours. Raised garden beds on the yard’s upper terrace await your green thumb and a brand-new storage shed will help keep you organized. Dine al fresco as the middle terrace opens with a circular, paved patio nestled by plantings and mature trees for ultimate privacy. Step down to yard’s lower level with more sprawling, green space.

Dazzling style continues at every turn on the second level offering the spacious master suite, four more family bedrooms, and a large landing. Prepare to be amazed as the master suite opens with an inviting bedroom bathed in natural light with a decorative arch highlighting a bay of windows, hardwood floors, and a fireplace for a cozy feel on chilly nights. 

A French door opens to an adjoining room perfect to use as a home office, gym, nursery, or whatever you desire. The room is just as beautifully appointed as the master bedroom with hardwood flooring, a bay of windows, a double closet, and a wall of built-in shelving. Surround yourself in luxury in the master bathroom with marble floor tiles, a marble-topped dual sink vanity, a beautifully tiled steam shower, a marble accented Jacuzzi tub, a huge linen closet, overhead shelving, and recessed lighting.

Another en suite bedroom is perfect for guests with a huge walk-in closet featuring a built-in shelving system, hardwood floors, and a full bathroom with a dual sink vanity and a tiled shower. Each bedroom has its own unique style and the versatility to choose one as a home office if desired. The family bathroom has a marble topped vanity, white beadboard trim, and a marble accented tub with shower.

Retreat to the finished third level with two more bedrooms and another full bathroom, perfect to use as a teen suite. Both bedrooms are full of natural light with shining hardwood floors. A full bathroom on the third level has a steam shower and a separate soaking tub.

A 2020 renovation created an entertainment haven in the finished, walkout lower level. No need to leave home when everything you need to enjoy special moments with family is right under your very own roof. The lower level was meticulously designed to be both highly functional and stylish. Barn door accents cleverly disguise convenient storage areas. A large open concept space is perfect as a hangout space or recreation area. The lower level full bathroom has a custom teak vanity and pebbled wall tiles with a sink to match. Relax and unwind at the end of a long day in your very own sauna. A private office is tucked away on the lower level, perfect for working or studying comfortably from home, with custom finishes including a designer chandelier and walls of shelving. The bartender will love to show off their skills at the bar with a trendy polished concrete waterfall countertop, a prep sink, ice maker, dishwasher, and beverage refrigerator. Toast to special occasions with a vintage bottle of red from your very own custom built wine cellar, perfect for the most particular wine aficionado.
