Living here has been a dream. This home has been the place of countless memories: birthday parties, family Christmas parties, graduations, business meetings, fundraisers, a rained-out block party, and many, many out-of-town guests. And, we hit the neighbor jackpot! This is as cohesive and friendly a neighborhood as you will find anywhere. Neighbors range from young families to retirees; pastors to executives; doctors to sales reps.
When we were looking for a new home, one of us wanted “new and modern,” and the other “old world charm and character.” 3248 Dupont gave us the perfect blend of both, and the ability to make it our own. Updates we’ve made to the home since the purchase are many. In the kitchen, we designed and doubled the size of the kitchen island, and outfitted it with additional power outlets and a cubby for device charging (it’s the little things that matter). We added new high-end appliances, including new range with hood, two beverage drawers, and a microwave drawer. And we added new Carrara marble counter tops, subway tile, window treatments, Restoration Hardware drawer and cabinet pulls, and a brand new sink and faucets.
In the first floor powder room, we added all new imported grass cloth wallpaper, new hardware, and new lighting and fan. In the living room, we took out the faux tile and mantel on fireplace, and replaced it with a custom fireplace designed and painted by Daryll Otto (who used the 18th century Chinese stool in that room as his inspiration). By way of professional context, Mr. Otto designed and painted the walls at the Walker Art Museum. In terms of closet upgrades, we added a brand new Master Suite walk-in closet system with motion-sensor lighting. We added a new organizer system in the office with an attached safe. We also added a new system in hallway closet. Throughout 3248 Dupont, we updated lighting, repainted, and added all new, custom window treatments. Outside, we added a new custom-designed deck with pergola that opens to the backyard, and that architecturally anchors the back of the home. We added new gardens and plants throughout, along with custom aluminum planters, to enhance the serenity of our backyard oasis. Lastly, we recently added a new Bryant Air Conditioner, 13 Seer High-Efficiency 5 Ton Unit, to cool the home on all three levels with ease.
The home is unbelievably energy efficient, thanks to the investments the previous owner made in the new windows, furnace, insulation, and James Hardie siding. 3248 Dupont is quiet and safe and is loaded with a security system for monitoring your home from your phone, at ADT or on your computer. With media in every room, parties are a blast with music piped in from Satellite radio, CD or I-Tunes. This very special home is state-of-the-art and if you’re a techie, there is an entire T1 Internet line running through the home. Probably our favorite thing about the home is the natural light. This home radiates sunshine throughout the day! For night time hours, the programmable lighting system is brilliant, allowing you to create hundreds of lighting scenarios according to your personalized taste. It’s been a wonderful experience living here. We hope you enjoy and cherish 3248 Dupont Ave as much as we have!
