Another fabulous Anderson-Jackson renovation in a great uptown location, the Pierson Place Historic District. Steps away from the light rail, along with lots of staples of the urban dweller's life: Lux, Postino's, Windsor and more. A quick ride to downtown employment and activities. Travel? Take the light rail to the airport. Enough about that...
The house has been thoroughly renovated. From floor to ceiling. The underslab sewer pipes have been cleaned and inspected. All new electrical panel & wiring too. New Roof, New Duct, New HVAC, New Insulation, Windows... All the systems are in check and ready to move into a long future!
Walk in to awesome bamboo flooring that is used except in the wet areas that feature 12x24" porcelain tile. Large eat-in Kitchen with all new cabinetry, quartz counters, GE Profile stainless steel appliance package (gas slide-in range, including a refrigerator, and pantry. Glass and metal tile backsplash compliment the clean lines.
A large Master Bath w/walk-in closet was added: Dual Kohler basins sit atop a quartz counter and custom vanity, trimmed with glass tile backsplash; the shower features custom porcelain tile with glass tile accent and a 3/8" glass door; Proflo toilet (1.28gpf). The Full Guest Bathroom has also been completely renovated, with all new fixtures, custom ceramic and mosaic tile tub/shower surround, custom quartz vanity with Kraus basin & faucets.
Front porch living is great on the new paver-lined patio courtyard. Both front and back yards have been professionally landscaped and resonate green with a sensible amount of plantings and water efficiency/ low maintenance. The property is surrounded by a block wall for privacy, with custom metal gate. There's even some grass for the dog. You can take your party to the back of the home with a good sized covered patio to that’s easily accessed from the Living Room French Doors or the Kitchen.
Energy efficiency was addressed with dual pane, low-e windows,R-38 insulation in the attic, R-8 ducting for the air system. Newly constructed areas of the home used 2x6" construction with sprayed in cellulose insulation. To avoid excess air leakage, penetrations were sealed; the air tightness of the home was balanced with ventilation in bathrooms, laundry and kitchen. Water efficiency was achieved with water sense plumbing fixtures and mixed scape landscaping.
This home proves its efficiency by earning EMERALD level certification from the National Home Innovation Laboratories Green Home Program (formerly known as National Association of Home Builders). This is the highest level of certification possible and the home boasts a HERS (Home Energy Rating Score) of 71- an outstanding achievement for a renovated (largely) brick Historic Home. This renovation is fully permitted by the City of Phoenix, and compliant with the Historic Preservation Office's guidelines.
125 W Elm Street is an awesome find for someone who appreciates the charm and benefits of midtown living, proximity to light rail AND who is looking for a turnkey home with quality renovation that is rare.
