On the Market: 101 Wendover Road

This Palmer & Lamdin-designed house at 101 Wendover Road was built in 1929, at the height of construction in Guilford. It is one of their more traditional-style homes, alternately described as Charleston-style, French Regency or Colonial Revival. Regardless, the classic style holds its own after nearly a century.

As you enter from the bluestone patio and through the double doors, you come into a black-and-white checked marble floor, with beautiful millwork details on the walls and a sweeping staircase with a wrought-iron railing.
From there, you will find the beautiful living room with its elaborate fireplace with carved marble surround and numerous French doors leading to the gardens.
Or head the dining room with its arched inset display cases and then into the recently upgraded gourmet kitchen.
Or head to the cozy library/home office where you can curl up with a good book or catch up on your emails. There is also the former garage which has been converted to a family room, complete with ceiling beams and a fireplace.

The bedrooms and baths in this house range from sumptuous and luxurious to cozy and intimate.
The smaller ones were most likely the servants’ quarters, but they still have the details expected in a house like this one.

The grounds are filled with mature plantings including flowering bushes, old-growth trees, a private garden and beautiful lawns. A swimming pool, just off the blue-stone patio which extends the length of the house provides a perfect backdrop for any party.
There is on-site parking with a private “motor court” which will hold several cars. 

The listing for the house is here. For an article about the renovations of the house, click here.
