Description

This 1926 home in Avondale is a grande dame worthy of the finest in entertaining. Walk up the front steps and into the foyer with checkered marble floors, and feast your eyes on the grandeur before you. Step inside to 10 high ceilings, original heart pine wood floors, quality molding work and wainscoting, and an abundance of space, easily customizable to your family’s needs. The formal living room centers around the wood burning fireplace with a stunning mantle, making it a wonderful gathering space. A separate nook off of the living room is ideal for a tv room or library. You get to enjoy two porches – one is enclosed with natural pink marble and exposed wood ceilings; plus French art deco sconces and a gorgeous chandelier. The additional porch, off of the formal dining room, is open and ideal for starting the day with your morning coffee. Right off of the kitchen, the formal dining room offers space to spread out, exposed brickwork, and historic home lovers will appreciate the small piece of original wall paper that was saved and is now a focal point.
The kitchen features Carrera counter tops, a farmhouse sink, gas stove, large refrigerator, tall open ceiling, and laundry room with travertine floors. The flow will allow guests to mingle with you while you’re preparing dinner.
Downstairs also has a cozy half bath underneath the stairs. As you make your way upstairs, where the three bedrooms are, pause at the landing with the Juliet balcony and take in the backyard views.
On one side you’ll find the owner’s room and an expansive en-suite that takes up an entire side of the upstairs, with a walk in closet, clawfoot tub, Carrera marble floors, and a separate shower. Two additional bedrooms offers plenty of windows with natural light, providing wonderfully airy spaces. The full hallway bathroom features subway tile and hex tile, and a beautiful clawfoot tub.
Step outside to your expansive newly fenced in backyard; with a multi-level wood deck, covered patio, storage shed, and plenty of green space. The meyer lemon tree, orange tree, and olive tree will provide delicious additions to your culinary and cocktail creations!
This home has gone through an impressive renovation, and also includes updates such as an architectural shingle roof, insulation in the exterior walls, pillars added to the foundation, almost all energy efficient windows, updated plumbing and electrical, two AC units, a gas water heater, and more! The top half of the home is Cedar shingle, and Cedar siding makes up the bottom half.
It is tenant occupied until early December. Please do not visit the property without an appointment (48 hours notice is required) and do not disturb tenants. Reach out today to schedule an exclusive showing! (Buyer to verify square feet.)
