Welcome to 207 Wendover Road in historic Guilford! Over $500,000 in improvements in last 10 years! Ask for list. Built in 1916, by renowned architect Laurence Hall Fowler, 207 Wendover is bold, grand, and totally, carefully renovated; a sweet mix of restoration with the modern updates/improvements for today's lifestyles. This dramatic 6 bedroom/5 bath home has been featured in several books, newsletters and architectural digests dating back to 1920. Enjoy the 11-foot ceilings on the first floor (9 foot + elsewhere), 2 wood burning fireplaces, redone bathrooms w/heated floors, recessed lighting added throughout, large, restored windows, sound system, and so much more. Kitchen features high end stainless appliances including a Marvel refrigerator, 5 burner gas stove with Viking hood, a butler's pantry with bar sink/icemaker, breakfast nook and a mudroom/2nd pantry. As one enters one faces the handsome entry hall with an extravagantly large living room on one side and entrances to kitchen and the gracious dining room on the other. At the rear of the entrance hall, there is a light-filled study or small family room. As is Fowler's design, combined with the more recent efforts of Vincent Green Architects, the home abounds in light with French doors leading inside and out! On the 2nd level, enjoy the comfort of your oversized primary bedroom with custom, dual walk-in closets. The adjoining bathroom features lava tile flooring, marble vanities, and radiant heated floors. Elsewhere on 2nd level, don't miss the hidden door in the 2nd bedroom leading to a full bath. 3rd bedroom is used as an office. The top level (also renovated) features 3 bedrooms (one used as a TV room) a full bath and a storage room. Abundance of home upgrades include; electric (now 400 amps for home & garage), updated plumbing, 2 zone CAC/HVAC, recent (2019) tankless water heaters, French drain system with sump pump in a dry basement, whole house water filtration, water circulation and softener systems, home automation system (all house systems operate on phone remotely), and an audio visual system. There is an expansive, 2 level bluestone patio around house in back and a 2nd patio area with fire pit as well as a private garden with a hammock. The large, flat backyard offers great play/garden space, and the Guilford Association has already approved the installation of a pool/pool house, if so desired. This home is a must see!
