The story of 853 Paramount Road
Crocker Highlands’ aptly named Paramount Road is home to this elegantly located, preserved, and renovated property. Well-appointed kitchen and bathroom remodels complement time-honored majesty throughout the three-bedroom, two-bathroom composition, and infrastructure upgrades include central air conditioning. Its grand-scaled floor plan features sparkling, spacious public rooms, a multi-chamber master, family room that doubles as guest room, plus lower-level bonus space. French doors open to an exquisite deck, slate terrace, and park-like gardenscape.
Idyllic in its setting amid distinctive architecture, the location combines a tucked-away sensibility while remaining convenient, even walkable, to everyday vitality. Within strolling distance, highly rated schools, commute options, and a world of vibrant shopping, café culture, and recreation animate the neighborhood. Leave multiple cars in the detached garage while enjoying the area on foot or bike.
Tudor architectural facets accentuate the home’s exterior, including towering dormers, charismatic window arrays, and a second-story oriel window. A notably level approach arrives at the arched entry, emblematically outlined by tabbed masonry. Enter to a graceful framework of architectural attributes circa 1924, commingled with fitting updates. Hardwood flooring meets casement-window expanses. Stretching from baseboard to crown molding, they present garden outlooks and radiant natural light throughout the center-hall layout. The fireplace-enhanced living room and wine-closet-equipped dining room ably accommodate large-scale entertaining. Adding indoor-outdoor ease for entertaining and everyday enjoyment, arched French doors open from the barrel-ceilinged breakfast room. With a divided-light composition, they echo the room’s windows and floor-to-ceiling glassed built-ins.
The kitchen integrates dazzling and durable quartzite surfaces, uber-configured cabinetry, top-of-the-line appliances by Thermador, and a layout supplying bar seating. Cabinetry conceals appliances and offers optimized storage with heavy-duty pull-outs calibrated for every need. Professional grade, the range combines convection and steam ovens, warming drawer, and six-burner cooktop with grill. Step from the sumptuous kitchen out to a terrace for dining al fresco in a picturesque setting of sophisticated hardscaping with manicured leafy surroundings.
A main-floor family room becomes an inviting guest room, adjacent to a renovated full bathroom. Classically styled components intermix with a tile scheme of smooth, sand-hued porcelain.
Upstairs, which offers peeks of the Bay, three bedrooms include the master with Bay-windowed sun room. An extra closet within the second room equips it nicely as a nursery or office. Within the hall bathroom, porcelain tile reiterates, and leathered quartzite forms the countertop.
The lower level, open to the terrace, includes a room well suited as media den or for wine tasting and storage.
