The story of 912 Underhills Road

Elevated by its garden setting, this Crocker Highlands Tudor is encompassed by a vibrant landscape. Highlighting the interior, a refurbished vintage-effect kitchen and two full bathrooms blend with 1920’s arch-motif architecture embellishing living and dining rooms. Three bedrooms occupy the second floor, while a lower-level fourth bedroom benefits from an adjacent full bathroom and separate entry. Set to savor outdoor-living space, step from the dine-in kitchen to the dine-al-fresco deck amid hushed, leafy surroundings.

Underhills Road spans one elongated block tranquilly tucked in Crocker Highlands yet central, even walkable, to  everyday everything. Enjoy scenic walkability to beloved neighborhood schools, multifaceted shopping, dining, recreation, and commuting options without taking the car from the home’s detached garage.

Characteristic of a Tudor, the façade of 912 features decorative half-timbering outlining the entry porch, a prominent place for a dash of detail; the roofline makes a sweeping curve tracing a Tudor-arch window, winding down over an arched garden passthrough.

Iconic arches carry to the interior, where public rooms fan out from the foyer with an interconnected flow. A wide Tudor-arch opening gives way to the living room, with an original fireplace anchoring one wall; opposing it, arched niches top a pair of library shelves. Hardwood floors reflect abundant natural light cast by nearly floor-to-ceiling windows in both living and dining rooms. They frame outlooks of garden exuberance, and, in the dining room, the leaded-glass expanse topped with Tudor arch correlates to an arched buffet alcove.

Renovated, the kitchen befits the home’s time-honored architecture. In a classic black-and-white composition, matte-black counters and white-tile backsplashes intersperse between stainless appliances and copious cabinetry plus pantry, featuring period-air hardware. The breakfast alcove provides a windowed gathering space with glass-door access to the front deck, perfectly placed for dining under a tree canopy.

Hardwood floors carry to the second level, a polished environment for three bedrooms. Their generous closet dimensions are augmented by two hall closets. With a current take on vintage sensibility, the bathroom pairs gray-veined marble flooring and counter. The fourth lower-level bedroom overlooks the back garden, which envelops a paver-stone terrace for secluded lounging and dining.
