Picture yourself in this outstanding example of mid-century colonial modern style home built in 1956 by the late Marion and Maxine Slavens. The Balzers are only the second family to occupy the home. The house was designed by Portsmouth architect Earl C. Hayes Jr. who also designed the Jackson High School ?new addition? during the Atomic Plant expansion. (The home?s blueprints and construction specification catalogue come with the house.)
Constructed in 1956, the home features a beautiful entry hall with leaded glass windows and an open stairway. All rooms in the house have nine foot ceilings providing an extra sense of spaciousness. Off the hallway is a luxurious wood-paneled office with built-in bookshelves and cabinets, a large formal living room, family room, formal dining room with ample storage capacity, a gourmet kitchen updated with granite counter tops, custom cabinets and a commercial oven and Viking hood, a large utility room with ample storage and cabinets as well as a half bath. The second floor consists of a large master bedroom with generous his/her closets with built-ins, a master bath (an allowance to be remodeled by the buyer provided), a guest bedroom, two additional spacious bedrooms with ample closet space and a newly remodeled bathroom featuring a handsome tiled shower and modern vanity. The home has undergone significant renovation and updating, including new windows, vertical blinds, hardwood floors, dura-ceramic tile flooring, and carpet. The home?s exterior is now low-maintenance with shingle-style vinyl siding accented with black shutters, window moldings and dental molding installed when the home was purchased in 2007. At the time the home was purchased, the electric was upgraded and renewed to provide grounded outlets and a new breaker box to better manage modern devices and consumption demand. The attic insulation was upgraded to maximize energy efficiency. Central air was added downstairs in 2007 and the upstairs central air was upgraded this July to include a new air handler and modern refrigerant. The home is heated with a high-efficiency hot water boiler. The gas budget is a mere $76.00 per month for 2,790 square feet of living space! In 2013, the house and garage received new 25-year shingle roofs. At that time, the original screen porch at the back of the home was enclosed and finished to create a sunny and pleasant 3-season sitting area which can be heated or cooled by opening the French doors if desired to be used during more temperate weather. A large paver patio enclosed by a stone wall was constructed at the side and rear of the home to provide an impressive (800 sq. ft.) outdoor living, dining, and entertaining area which can be enjoyed throughout most of the year. The patio provides a quiet haven in which to unwind after a long day at work and a venue for entertaining second to none. The back yard is completely enclosed with a beautiful low-maintenance vinyl picket fence creating a secure haven for children and pets while maintaining privacy. This home could be yours!
