Langston feels magical inside and out

By
From page HS20 | June 06, 2014 |

If the Langston looks magical to you, you’re not alone. The steep roof and gingerbread trim on this Victorian cottage evokes memories of fairy tales.

While its footprint is small, this home offers more than 1,500 square feet of living area on three levels. Dining room, kitchen and an expansive vaulted living room are on the main floor. The owners’ suite is upstairs, along with a large storage area and a wide balcony overlooking the living room. Utilities are in the basement, which could also accommodate another bedroom.

Diamond-shaped gridding accents the arched window in the front door. A slender, similarly gridded window nestles under a tiny street-facing gable. This mini gable echoes the eye-catching two-story A-shaped gable next to it.

That magical fairy tale feeling continues inside. The living room is vaulted to the second floor ceiling. On the left, natural light washes in through a two-story stack of multipaned windows crowned by mirror-image quarter rounds. More light beams in through the gridded glass in the tiny front gable. A plant shelf below it takes advantage of the light.

Flames in the masonry fireplace serve as a warm focal point when the sky dims and darkens. With the exception of the pass-through in front of its sink, the kitchen is a separate space. An arched opening links it to a dining room with a windowed bench alcove. Basement stairs are off of the kitchen, while stairs to the second floor angle up behind the fireplace.

Upstairs, a window bay crowned by a half round expands the owners’ bedroom and creates a cozy window seat. Inner shutters can be opened or closed, allowing the Langston’s owners to overlook their living room, or opt for privacy.
