This cape-cod styles home, originally built in 1915, has been featured in the Better Homes and Gardens' "Remodeling Magazine" in 1998, in their Bed & Bath issue in 1999, and their "Before and After" issue in 2005. Additionally, this home was featured in "50 Most Beautiful Homes in Atlanta" in 1999. The reason this home has received such notable attention is evident when you walk through the front door into the receiving parlor. Such care and detail has been placed on preserving the originality of the home, yet adding modern touches that make this worthy of a Magazine Cover.
The original Hardwood floors have been restored and maintained throughout the main floor, with exception to a very modern slate flooring in the formal dining, kitchen and breakfast room.
With big windows and tall 10 ft. + ceilings throughout the main, there is an abundance of light that emits throughout the house.
The receiving parlor has a wood burning fireplace with wide open spaces for gatherings, connect ...(show more) ing to the dining room and family room. Wide plantation shutters provide that old world feel. Walking into the dining room there is a subtle shift to a very modern environment with contemporary lighting, built in book shelves and angled slate tile flooring.
Adjacent the dining room you will find the sizeable modern light maple wood kitchen. The large island is conveniently covered with a stainless steel top and inserted with a large 6 burner gas cook-top. With large amounts of counter space, oodles of soft close drawers, and loads of cabinet space, there is room for every appliance in this kitchen. Stainless Kitchen Aid appliances can be found in this kitchen, including an under the counter microwave offering easy access for the entire family. There are double convection ovens built into the kitchen, and don't forget the professional hood vent overtop of the island cook top. The rest of the counter space, including the pass through to the family room, offers a very unique solid stone/concrete counter top surface. Maple cabinetry has been built around the pass through to the family room and the glass door cabinets positioned overhead this section offer a noticeable display of special artifacts, due to the built-in cabinet lighting.
Open to the kitchen, the breakfast room brings back that old world charm, with floor to ceiling windows and transoms made entirely of stained glass. There is a built-in sideboard for serving convenience and modern lighting in the tall ceilings. Overlooking the back yard, this space is the perfect place for that first morning brew or a leisurely English breakfast with a Sunday newspaper.
The wall of windows overlooking the back yard extends through the family room, where the centerpiece is the original fireplace, which has been updated with a gas log insert and recently redone mosaic. The original wood floors have been restored and make this an easy space to compliment any style. French doors lead to the generous decking that overlooks this well-manicured and professionally landscaped back yard. There is an access to a private back alley, where additional parking can be found. There is a small out building for garden equipment storage in the back as well. Overlooking this all is a balcony from the second floor owner suite, where the peaceful serenity is complimented with large evergreen and hardwood trees, beautiful Chinese maple trees, paved walkways, and a water feature.
Moving to the hallway past the receiving parlor we find two bedrooms. The front guest bedroom is quite large and bright, with plantation shutters and hardwood floors.
The bathroom on the main floor is spectacular, offering a very delicate mix of new and old world design. From the claw foot tub, to the mosaic tiles, the modern sink, and the fogged glass windows, this bathroom will meet your highest expectation!
Across the hallway you will find a second bedroom with large walk in closet and separate bath with jaw dropping shower. This room can easily double as a second owner suite. The large windows and a door to the back deck make this a perfect room for a long term guest or mature adolescent.
Heading up the hardwood covered stairs we arrive on the second floor. This level has been completed with thick rich maple hardwood floors. Immediately to the right we walk into the Master Bedroom with attention-grabbing architectural angles, modern lighting, and complimenting built-in book cases in the sitting room. The wall of windows is broken up by a door leading to the balcony, overlooking the back yard and perfect for quiet morning coffees, intimate light night star gazing, or reenacting the balcony scene in Romeo and Juliette. Enjoy the fireworks from home when they are shot off at Piedmont Park.
