Tradition Melded With Modern
Dreaming of simpler times? From the moment you step into the welcoming foyer at 1432 Kilmer Lane, you'll be embraced by traditional Cape Cod charm melded with modern amenities.
The original 1600sf home, built in 1948, was expanded to 3626sf to include an enlarged kitchen, a spacious family room, walk-in closet and full bath for the downstairs master bedroom, two extended upstairs bedrooms, a huge additional bedroom/media room, office or hobby area and a large flex space over the 1.5 car garage.
You'll appreciate the extensive storage of the walk-in pantry, the black walnut shelves+console (reclaimed from a Norfolk judge's office) that accents the kitchen passageway, and the kitchen's recently-installed tall cabinets. Prepping great meals will be easy with a convenient gas cook top and all the space afforded by the new counters. Plus there's a new sink, refrigerator and dishwasher.
You're sure to fall in love with the texture of the exposed original brick incorporated in the cozy eat-in nook that opens to the 22'x15' family room overlooking the back yard. Laundry day will be a breeze in the room off the kitchen that connects to the garage.
Gather your favorite people for holiday dinners in the front dining room with its great wood-burning fireplace and hardwood floor. Access the expansive second floor via the classic Cape Cod “captain's stairway” adjacent to the front door.
Upstairs, enjoy the inviting light allowed by the dormer windows that overlook the front yard. The two original upstairs bedrooms were extended and, down the main hall, the additional bedroom has possible uses as a fantastic media or game room. Remember to explore the office/hobby area that leads to the flex space over the garage (boxed flooring for the room conveys).
Additionally, you'll value the updated dual-zone HVAC system, gas water heater, 30-year architectural shingle roof, and vinyl windows throughout.
1432 Kilmer Lane is situated on nearly ½ acre in the centrally-located Lansdale neighborhood, close to the Norfolk International Airport, the new IKEA and Norfolk Premium Outlets, as well as convenient interstate connections. Make an appointment to visit soon!
