Welcome to 429 Old Eagle School Road! This elegant, late 1800's estate home was built during a time when exceptional materials, superior craftsmanship, and custom millwork were of greatest importance in constructing the finest, most attractive and impressive homes in Wayne. Situated deep on a 1.60 acre property and shielded by lush mature landscaping, this home is located in an incredibly convenient location with amazing character, plenty of living space, and private grounds. This beautiful home is set back off the road down a long driveway with welcoming white gates to a beautiful 7 bedroom, 4~ bath Victorian Colonial. This home has been loved and well cared for by the same owner for the past 45 years. As you enter this home, you will be impressed by the magnificent center hall foyer complete with gorgeous brick fireplace, refinished hardwood floors, wainscoting, and decorative moldings. On either side of the foyer, you will find the formal light filled living and dining rooms, both with floor to ceiling windows, refinished hardwood floors, and brick fireplaces. The renovated kitchen has all new stainless steel appliances including a double oven, cherry cabinets, beautiful granite counter tops, and a center island. Enjoy the bright breakfast room with a bay window, skylights, and a gas fireplace. While the kitchen has been recently updated, the charm of the original kitchen still blends nicely including the original built-in china cabinets with glass doors. Next to the kitchen and dining room is the butler's pantry which is great for entertaining. There is a convenient back staircase that leads to the 2nd & 3rd floors, the basement level, and garage. On the 2nd floor, you will find a large master bedroom with a full bath, walk-in closet, gas fireplace, and a private balcony that overlooks the beautiful, peaceful yard. The 2nd floor has 2 full baths and up to 4 bedrooms which may be used as an office, a master sitting room, or nursery. The laundry room is also conveniently located on the second floor. On the 3rd floor, you will find an additional 2 full baths, 4 more bedrooms, or rooms to be used as an office or playroom. The wrap-around veranda with a copper roof completes this historic Wayne Victorian. The hand-carved moldings, fireplace mantels, and millwork throughout the home are impressive and a rare find. The 9~ foot ceilings, the original inlaid hardwood floors, the 6 fireplaces, and the circular driveway all add appeal, charm and character.
