The story of 968 Grosvenor Place

Throughout this Crocker Highlands Traditional, 1920s elegance underpins fresh updates. Across its composition of majestic public rooms and three bedrooms, original architectural attributes, such as refinished hardwood floors, radiate with renewed luster. Extensive renovations rejuvenate the full and half bathroom and dine-in kitchen, which opens out to a garden with stepping-stone path joining level lawn and stone terrace.

Graceful Grosvenor Place presents architectural allure and glorious walkability to shopping, dining, and entertainment in vibrant Lakeshore-Grand and Park Boulevard hubs. The location offers walking-distance proximity to highly rated schools and public transportation as well. What’s more, pull out of the attached garage and enjoy swift highway access.

Distinguishing the home’s façade, a pair of expansive, divided-light windows imparts luminous symmetry, and a decorative medallion adds period ornamentation. Level lawn banded by a manicured garden composition leads to a broad approach and entry porch.

Enter to an equally broad foyer embellished with ornate crown molding. Reiterated in living and dining rooms, wide moldings outline rooms decoratively and complement the living-room fireplace, its surround also accentuated with intricate silhouettes. Both spaces bask in natural light emanating from large-scale front windows with an elevated perspective.

Within the kitchen, new components dovetail with the home’s architectural character. Classic-aesthetic Carrera marble counters meet subway-tile backsplashes. Fresh, white cabinetry integrates amid high-caliber appliances, including a six burner Pro Thor gas range and Fisher & Paykel stainless refrigerator. Spacious and sunlit, the breakfast area is outlined by an outcurved Bay-window configuration. An everyday and entertaining nucleus of the home, the kitchen links to the powder room and exterior. The garden’s stone terrace and stone-edged lawn form defined areas for al fresco dining and lounging. Fringed by mature flowering trees and perennials, it creates an abundant, serene setting for outdoor enjoyment.

Bedrooms are noteworthy for closets generous in number and dimensions. The hall bathroom, with new marble-topped vanity, correlates stylistically to the kitchen, and freshly refinished tile frames both its tub and shower. Multiple closets line the hall, and a kitchen-adjacent, shelving-configured one serves well as a pantry. Adding considerable capacity, a full basement augments interior and garage storage space.
