Travel back to the 1920s in this beautifully renovated two-bedroom, two-bathroom home historically known as the Czechoslovak Society of America (C.S.A.) Lodge Laurel No. 452. Originally built in 1922, Lodge Laurel (aka “The Bungalow”) was the place where many attended dances, theatre performances, live bands, weddings, and other gatherings. The mud room, originally the entryway to the C.S.A. Hall, still has the original ticket window. Beyond the ticket room is the massive 1562 sq ft hall, now turned living room, that features original pine wood floors, beadboard walls, and 17ft beadboard barrel ceiling. Eyes will be drawn across the room to the accent wall made of Italian marble tiles that is equipped to become a waterfall wall. The open space is perfect for entertaining and will be sure to awe your guests! As you move through the home you will notice the gorgeous sconces, brass door hinges, glass doorknobs, stain glass doors, and hand-cut oak trim and rosettes that give off Great Gatsby vibes. Just off the hall, the dining area lets in natural light from the windows and French doors. The 395 sq ft performance stage has been transformed into the spacious and bright primary bedroom which includes tall ceilings, walk-in closet, and private deck. In the primary bathroom, soak in the claw foot tub or enjoy the large shower with built in benches which, when connected to a steam generator, can become a sauna. The second bedroom has large walk-in closet which originally was the hall’s coat and hat room. The additional family room/office space towards the front of the home has the potential to become a third bedroom. The kitchen features tall ceilings with skylights, granite countertops, and stainless-steel appliances. The back of the home provides even more space to entertain on the 480 sq ft deck. Create your own workshop in the large basement which includes built-in work benches and welding outlet. The home even has a generator hookup. This home is truly one of a kind and full of character! As stunning as the pictures are, this home needs to be seen in person to do it justice. Don’t miss the chance to own a piece of history and schedule your showing today!
