Glenwood Estates cottage-style home reimagined as an urban farmhouse. Enjoy banks and banks of new windows to blend with the wavy glass of the old. Dovetailing original charm and modern lifestyle, local architect, J. Timberlake, redesigned this treasured homeplace into a new era leveraging the tree-canopied setting to deliver nature into the heart of the home. Anjer Construction completed the project featuring expansive new owner's suite on main floor that feels bathed in a forest. Also added was a new mudroom, walk-in pantry, updated kitchen, rear gallery sunroom and open air rear porch plus an additional bedroom upstairs and two new baths on main floor. Faithful vision was given to choose new products to vibe in peace with the timeless essence of this now 75+ year old beauty. This eclectic mix blends English cottage, horse country clapboard, low country flicker sconces with wide plank floors, antique brick floor porch capped under a peeled paint plank ceiling. In its completion the home offers naïve charm both current and classic in the "Father of the Bride" storybook style. Marble countertops and unexpected built-ins surprise the visitor and accommodates a more modern lifestyle. With plenty of room for visitors, family of all ages, and work-from-home dedicated office options, this house has ample square footage and plenty of elbow room in the yard (this Glendale Ave. corner lot home is being sold with the adjacent lot behind which has a separate Mt. Vernon address). Stainless appliances, updated electrical, a third furnace and AC unit plus updates to all original baths in addition to the two newly built baths offers much that is new seem perfectly original. Waterproofed, finished large terrace level with walkout glass door and a bank of double windows finishes makes this space into bonus and exceedingly practical living quarters. The Living Room and Family Room are of handsome scale, the transom windowed rear gallery sunroom serves as library opening onto a rear covered porch with sunken deck overlooking the woodland back yard. The landscape is rock bordered beds against a ivy covered natural hillside suggesting a hint of Highland's in the heart of Decatur. Great flow for parties with lots of options outside for entertaining. Compelling opportunity with extra land to consider a pool and carriage house. Award-winning City of Decatur public schools plus destination dining and pubs are a sidewalk stroll away. Tremendous Glenlake park, with nature trails, dog park, playground, ball fields, lighted tennis and pool make a special lifestyle community.
