Welcome to 519 Fairmount. This exquisite 1912 home features wonderful period details and has been completely renovated with impeccable quality. The transformation seamlessly blends modern touches with meticulous detail to its original craftsman architecture.

Every inch of this home was carefully thought out, from the window trim, crown molding, window placement, large closets and dark floors complementing the quartz countertops.
