Q. What distinctive features set this home apart?
First impressions are important, and 2124 Tuomy makes a good one. A Georgian colonial with lovely formal design elements – classic symmetry, a pediment and columns at the entrance, a wide cornice at the top, seated atop a rise on a large lot. Inside, more of the same – a lovely banister in the entryway, solid six-panel doors, and refinished hardwood floors. The formal dining room features lovely built-in corner cabinetry with shell detail, wainscoting, and French doors to the terrace. Rooms are spacious, ceilings are high and large windows throughout bring in loads of natural light.
Q. What are the advantages of the location and neighborhood?
Lucky residents on Tuomy Road enjoy the quiet of the Ann Arbor Hills neighborhood and are just a short hop to Washtenaw. Turn left to easy access to shopping and highway; turn right and you’re on campus and on your way to downtown. It’s close to schools and a short walk to Gallup Park, the Arb, and walking paths.
Q. Have there been any recent renovations or upgrades?
The kitchen has been remodeled with marble and granite counters, farm sink, and lots of cabinet space – originals with leaded glass are complemented by new white ones. The walk-out basement has a finished family room with high ceilings and fireplace and a half bath.
Q. What Amazing views will the new homeowner be able to enjoy?
At 2124 Tuomy, the best view of all is your own backyard – a secret garden! There is a large brick terrace with plenty of room for a dining table and seating area. The yard is large, quiet, and private with lots of perennials and mature trees. Off the back of the house and sharing the same views is a sunporch that has paned glass on 3 sides – the perfect place to perch. For a view from above, the master is a 2-room suite with attached bath and private balcony which overlooks the backyard.
Q. Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about the house?
With 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths and 2 half baths, this house has space for everyone along with classic details and craftsmanship that make it a real beauty.
