3523 River Rd

The hands of time were turned back at "Top Hat," a former toll house with separate guest/rental house that has undergone an update of its most important elements all while maintaining its historical character. Set amid a dramatic quarry wall backdrop at the base of scenic Cuttalossa Road just steps from the canal path, this stone and frame residence, guest house and two-car garage likely dates to the 19th century. Step inside where woodwork was stripped and freshly painted, electric and lighting have been updated, floors and stairs were sanded and stained and tile was steamed, cleaned and sealed. A vestibule entry opens to a library/parlor with a wall of built-ins. Pocket doors slide open to reveal a striking, cathedral-ceiling living room with stone fireplace, now outfitted with new custom fireback and a gas hookup should one wish. The rear of the floor plan provides a casual sitting/TV room with custom wall-mounted flat screen, a formal dining room with fireplace and built-ins, powder room, updated laundry room and recently renovated kitchen with Jenn-Aire appliances, Shaws porcelain farm sink and new faucet. The breakfast room has been refreshed with a new tile floor. A wide stairwell leads to a second floor where refinished wood floors now run along a catwalk that overlooks the great room and leads to both bedrooms. A hall bath serves one bedroom. The main suite includes a large dressing room with three closets that now have organizers installed and a full bath with new sink and faucet, a bidet and tub/shower. The guest house now has a new roof. The space includes a new 1950s-style, stainless-steel kitchenette, vaulted-ceiling main living room and a bedroom with sliders to a roomy private deck. Because the sellers had anticipated spending many years at the property, they made quality improvements throughout. There is a long list of updates, among them new thermostats, new generator panel, new wireless security system for both houses, new garage door openers, new water heater in guest house, UV water treatment and UV air filtration systems, and more.
