This spacious & updated Albany home just feels good...! The front stairs & delightful front porch beckon, and upon entering the front door you will immediately sense the craftsmanship & design quality of this truly exceptional home. Originally built in 1910, it underwent a major renovation in 2017 including a new foundation, roof, plumbing, electrical wiring/panel, dual-pane windows, radiant heat system, chef's kitchen, and much more. Solar panels & a legal ADU were subsequently added. The original house now features 2,988 sq ft of living space; and the detached ADU at the NW corner of the oversized lot offers another 606 sq ft. The home's gracious entry includes a built-in bench and opens beautifully to the living room and dining room, which in turn flow to the wonderfully large kitchen. Up the exquisitely-crafted staircase you'll find a roomy primary bedroom w/ 2 closets, en-suite bathroom, and lovely outlooks. Two more bedrooms and a hall bath round out this top floor. Stairs down from the kitchen lead to a huge rumpus room with a POOL TABLE, large TV area, huge laundry room, full bathroom, and bonus room perfect as an office or guest bedroom. The fully enclosed backyard is beautifully landscaped and features a lawn, stone patio, and inviting hot tub. Truly a special home!
