A timeless home filled with modern conveniences, coupled w the charm of yesteryear, Hunter Mews is one of Old Towns few single-family homes with ATTACHED garage nestled on one of its oldest streets. A true rarity that is seen through two conventional lensesâthe classic look and feel of Old Town from the exterior, yet young and new throughout the interiorâthis home awaits you as you pass through its gates . This gracious home built on land originally owned by John Hunter, is an excellent example of recent architecture accurately blending with its historic neighbors. The site was first used by John Hunter & Thomas Fleming as a ship building yard from 1763 through the 1780âs and later a carriage house. The site had no dwellings until 1889, when the land records note two dwellings. By 1987 only a small portion of one of these homes remained when construction on the present structure began. The owners have renovated it with attention to detail. Welcomed by the entry foyer, with custom leaded glass detailed front door, marble floor & dentil mouldings. You will love the open concept and meticulous attention to detail. The living room radiates from natural light that shines through a full bank of windows across the room. Custom marble mantle sits at its center, across from a built-in wet bar. The gourmet kitchen has been renovated w new appliances : Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, wine cooler, oversized deep sink, smart double oven, ice machine, under cabinet lighting, quartz countertops and center island. The light-filled breakfast/family room has a 20ft wall of floor to ceiling windows which look out to gardens with plush plantings.
