Looking for Style • History • Modernism • Functionality • Elegance in an Environmentally Sensitive home with amazing outdoor spaces and onsite parking? 764 S 18th is the right place for you. Built to international Passive Home standards, this incredibly well-insulated historic row house equipped with triple pane windows and sophisticated HVAC will not only lower your carbon footprint, it will elevate your living experience with quiet, comfort, and a steady flow of filtered fresh air at a fraction of the monthly cost of conventional home systems. Enter the home through a contemporary, custom-made Australian Blackwood front door designed to fit the arched entry in the lovely mid-19th-century brick facade. A glass panel behind an upholstered bench and the tiled entryway floor create an open, welcoming foyer. The space then opens up to tall ceilings, natural light, white oak flooring, and a contemporary wood and steel staircase creating a voluminous living and dining area. The sight line at the entrance extends all the way through the home 98 ft to the rear of the property on S Cleveland Street, where the custom laser-cut driveway gates will soon be installed. The entrance to the kitchen is flanked by a custom blackwood coat closet. The kitchen floors are multi-colored slate tiles, the cabinets have Shaker lines with a variegated gray/brown finish, the counters are pale quartz, and the backsplash is augmented glass with stainless steel behind the stove. The rear of the kitchen is a wall of glass overlooking the patio and the parking and planting area behind. Currently in progress for completion prior to settlement are a permeable paved surface for parking, a bamboo-inspired laser-cut driveway, and pedestrian gates. There are also defined planting areas in the works, including a wall of bamboo to the south and a variety of specimens to the north, which will also be completed before settlement. Heading down the oak stairs from the living room you will find an exposed stone foundation wall that highlights a large, open, beautifully finished space perfect for a media room, or given the well-appointed adjacent full bath, a 4th bedroom or guest suite. To the rear of this level is a large finished storage area, and a means of egress that opens to a lovely rock garden. Also on this level is a mechanical/technology closet with an abundance of features that are too long to list here. Back up the stairs and to the second floor you will find a pair of well-proportioned bedrooms. One featuring east light and views of the park across the street. The rear unit has a large corner window with west light and views of the patio. In between is a lovely white tiled bathroom with a combination soak tub/shower. Additionally, there is a laundry room with a stacked washer/dryer, sink, countertop, cabinets, and an area for air drying your delicate clothing. The lovely quarter-turn staircase illuminated by large windows rises to the 3rd floor where you will find access to a wonderful roof deck featuring ipe wood decking, a planting area, and frosted glass panels supported by white finish steel railings. Opposite the deck is a small flex space suitable for a modest-sized desk or chair featuring a fabulous view, but this area could also be enclosed to create a second walk-in closet to complement the primary one on this floor. Between the primary closet and east-facing bedroom is the primary bath with a glass shower stall, a large mirrored self-defogging medicine cabinet, and a floating vanity.
