Property Description

Located on one of the most desirable blocks in the South Kenwood historic landmark district, this stately brick Georgian home was built in 1905 by the firm of Doerr & Doerr. The large and elegant 3-story house, with matching coach house, has been lovingly and meticulously maintained by its current owners for over 40 years (a detailed list of improvements is available). It retains a wealth of irreplaceable vintage features: large graciously proportioned rooms, mahogany and painted oak paneling, hardwood floors throughout, fireplaces with original tilework, leaded-glass windows, plaster moldings, and high ceilings. The first floor features an impressive entrance hall (anchored by a majestic staircase), which opens to the gracious living and formal dining rooms with their wealth of period detailing. The large updated kitchen, with high-end appliances, provides ample storage (two pantries) and counter space, along with room for a good-sized table for family meals. The second floor features a flexible floor plan, with four sunny bedrooms, three with ensuite baths. The full-height 3rd floor has three additional bedrooms, a hall bath, and a cozy paneled den. The bright, clean basement provides a very large finished playroom, a temperature-controlled wine room, a laundry room and extensive storage. Outside there is a charming private, beautifully landscaped backyard. The gated side drive from Kimbark Avenue is a rare plus in this neighborhood. The brick coach house is an impressive structure in its own right, with a spacious three-car garage downstairs and a lovely, fully-furnished two-bedroom, one-bath apartment with central a/c upstairs (currently rented for $2,500/month).
