UNDER CONTRACT!! A great opportunity to live on this popular & friendly Oakleigh Garden District street! So much historic Arts & Crafts style, yet with all the modern amenities, in this historic circa 1911 bungalow home. It is 2 bedrooms and 2 baths with an extra “flex” space that could be a third bedroom or office. Per the seller, well designed and thoughtful renovations to the entire home were done in 2013 by the previous seller with hvac systems and a tankless water heater installed then. The current sellers added a fantastic deck. As you walk into the home from the large 20 x 7 front porch with swing and overhead fan, there is a spacious living room/dining room area with extra seating arranged around the historic fireplace with working gas logs. Then there is the flex space/office/potential 3rd bedroom to the right. There are sets of French doors here and also going into the kitchen. The kitchen was redone with farm style sink front and Calacatta marble counter tops, spacious island, along with a marble backsplash. There is a gas stove here and all appliances will remain, including the washer/dryer. There is plenty of room at the island for at least 4 bar stools. The historic original hutch was incorporated seamlessly into the kitchen cabinetry design. There is also a pantry off the kitchen in the 6.5 x 6.5 laundry room. Off the kitchen, the hallway leads to the primary bedroom suite with its attached beautifully renovated bathroom with vessel sink vanity, white tiled shower with frameless glass accents, and a walk in closet that is 9 x 2.9 . A historic fireplace is in the primary bedroom with a gas hookup as well and there is space for even a king sized bed. A doorway from here opens onto the screened in porch, convenient for coffee on your porch. Another bathroom is off the hallway with a large soaking tub. Each bathroom has a different set of beautiful, original Bellingrath tiles. The second bedroom also has a walk in closet that is 8 x 4. Gorgeous historic wood floors throughout the home with new tile in the laundry room/utility hall. Off the kitchen, there is also another hallway leading guests to the huge back deck and screened in porch to watch football games with friends. The inner deck with a fan and a covered area perfect for a tv is 12 x 9 and the outer deck, which has a retractable awning, is 19 x 7. The entire yard is fenced with plenty of parking to park behind the fenced gate as well as parking off street outside the gate. There is even more storage in the 19 x 13 storage shed. The Oakleigh Garden District neighborhood has an optional fun neighborhood association that has events for children and adults throughout the year. At the end of street just a block away, there is Crawford Park as well as a dog park. The area is within walking distance to Guncles’ Bakery, Callaghan’s, and The Hummingbird Way and less than a mile to downtown.
