Showing begin on Friday, May 5th the house will be open from 1-4pm. You will fall in love with the soulful renovation of this Victorian gem in the heart of Historic Grant Park. This understated beauty beckons you to leave the sidewalk and perch yourself above Cherokee Avenue to enjoy the spring breeze on a porch swing. The original front door dotted in pastel window panes draws you into the broad central hallway with original decorative transom which punctuates the soaring 11 foot ceilings found throughout the home giving grand scale and an airy quality to every space. This generous hall has been reimagined as a gallery space by the interior designer and architect couple that have reimagined this home into a showplace for living with whimsical and comfortable vibes. To the left of the hall the public spaces flow from one to the next—The living room receives gorgeous natural light to illuminate the artwork hung from picture rails and brings focus to the warm heart pine flooring, deep trim details, the original mantel framing the wood burning fireplace and nearby built-ins. Walk through the opening to the moody dining space enhanced with a custom terra cotta wall color, decorative chair rail and gas fireplace. How many to have at your dinner party? Don’t worry, they will all have a seat at the table. On to the dreamy kitchen with custom cabinets and millwork by Royal Custom Cabinets in a deep green to bring out the mossy undertones of the soapstone countertops. The Cle’ Tile backsplash brings in texture while the brass hardware and Kallista water tap provide a glow. As you turn away from the window above the sink you will find a double set of French doors leading to the new deck and the abundant back yard but wait—best of all, a set of tall cabinets reveals a glorious coffee bar and once you have a cup in hand, sit yourself down in the custom breakfast nook to enjoy nature coming to life through the glass doors. Now we find ourselves back in the front hall with the private spaces to the right. The first of three bedroom style rooms does double duty as an office space and guest bedroom finished in a soothing matte black hue with original mantel and majolica tile, it’s quite a large room and pulls off both rather nicely. A little deeper into the hall we find a whimsical child’s room painted in a bright white with woodland creatures, tall windows, ample closets and original fireplace details. Across the hall is a full bath with a clawfoot tub and pedestal sink, bead board wainscoting and chalkboard paint above. The primary suite is rendered in a rich but pale shade of pink and the soft light peeking through tall southern exposed windows creates a cozy atmosphere for lounging. The rare walk-in closet provides plenty of wardrobe options and the primary bath—well, it's newly renovated and remains rooted in the past with period appropriate wainscoting, large pedestal sinks, light marble floors and shower surround with waterworks fixtures all topped with a tropical 1920’s inspired wall covering. The backyard is an oasis recently groomed and planted for future play and pleasure. Did we mention this relatively flat lot is HUGE, ready for your pool or ADU with parking from the alley and surrounded by a newer privacy fence. All this is about a half of a block to the park, the neighborhood pizzeria and burger joint is even closer, the beltline beyond and the lively Memorial drive corridor in the other direction—our favorite bake shop Little Tart is perhaps a little too close 😉 We can’t wait for you to see the Grant Park dream home! Also, there are several more years of Tax freeze in place due to a Tax Credit for the historic restoration.
