You may have noticed over the last year or so, the intensive and complete renovation of 312 Sheridan Avenue.  It has been really exciting watching this Piedmont gem be transformed back to its former glory.

Just recently put on the market after being owned by only two prior families, it is a wonderful old home, circa 1920, with a fresh modern rehabilitation.  The owner had originally intended to restore the house for his parents and extended family to live in, but, upon the family's visit, they realized that it was just too large, and had too many stairs for them to manage.  With that plan out the window, they decided to continue with a full restoration, and put the house on the market. 

As was the mode with houses a hundred years ago, rooms were smaller, most areas of the house off limits to social visitors, and outdoor access not always so immediate.  With today's buyers looking for open floor plans, large "grand rooms", indoor/outdoor flow, and updated features in the kitchen and bathrooms, Sheridan now delivers beautifully. 

Upon entry, the house sparkles with light and crisp architectural details, and invites you in to roam.  The spacious dining room leads to a gourmet kitchen which is equipped with the best that modern living has to offer.  The living room just opposite, has been opened up as well, with French doors that lead to a sweet outdoor entertaining area adjacent to the neighbor's tennis court. 

Upstairs, the master bedroom has been recreated as well into a master suite, with a beautifully appointed bathroom with separate areas for husband and wife to have a little room/boudoir of their own. 

Finished off with lovely and romantic landscaping which complement some of the garden's original features such as the antique well, the home is just waiting for the next family who will love it. 

After listening to listing agents Debbi DiMaggio and Bernie Meyers share the history and process of bringing 312 Sheridan back to its full beauty, I realized how lucky we all are to live here in Piedmont.  So rich with history, so full of architectural splendor, we also have the thriving community it takes to maintain and enhance these beautiful homes for the next generation.  Very inspiring, indeed!
