Arlington Home of the Week: 2 Selkirk Road
This corner lot Cape has secured just one family for over 50 years.
This lovely Cape on Selkirk Rd. has not seen a lot of title-holders reside within its walls. That statistic says a great deal about its security and comfort. In fact, the same family has owned and proudly maintained this property for over 50 years. The ownership reigns, however, are now available for its next fortunate residents, and aside from personal touches, unpacking and settling in will be the only labor required.
This property immediately displays its timeless charm curbside with its welcoming cranberry exterior, white fencing, stone wall and traditional architectural lines. The front entry opens into an inviting 17 x 11 square foot living room with a bay window drenching the space in natural sunlight. The 11 x 12 square foot kitchen provides a great amount of storage space, including a peninsula that resourcefully divides the culinary center from an 11 x 12 square foot four-season sunroom with three fabulous walls of windows. An 11 x 11 square foot bedroom and full bath are also located on this level for residents who prefer single-floor living or, if two bedrooms are sufficient, this area would make an ideal den or home office. Two additional generously-sized bedrooms are located on the second story at 11 x 10 and 14 x 11 square feet as well as a half bath.
The semi-finished basement expands the available living space of this home with a fabulous family room surrounded by knotty pine paneled walls and a separate work/hobby area. The detached two-car garage is a surprising bonus for this size and age home and provides supplemental storage space.
This property's Selkirk Rd. address is sited in a highly desirable location in town within a beautiful neighborhood and walking distance to Arlington Heights with many retailing and restaurant choices. Prospective Arlington homebuyers should definitely place this home on their tour list. It's a residence that will nurture a family for many years, maybe even for another half a decade.
