Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

The Jewel of Victory Memorial Parkway

The Jewel of Victory Memorial Parkway

Only available due to relocation, this parkway facing home is sunset views for days!   The current owners are relocating, only reason for selling!   The home is Rare Form to the handles, lighting, master woodworker trim throughout! A double lot, central AC, attached three car, and nearly 3,000 feet of 1932 Tudor charm for $399,999.

Photos are terrific, but a walk through is needed to grasp this homes impact and grace.  Your abode alters the way you approach daily life- this home exudes success and modern life with classical touches throughout.

A double lot west facing over the parkway.   This home is nearly 3,000 feet and its all BRICK!  Previous owners completed a two story addition that added the upper living room and attached garage, they completed this at a time when brick construction was a more affordable option than it is currently.

Original tudor door and preserved hardware and lighting throughout.  Home was the sight of bootlegging in the 30's, as the entry has a trap door into the basement: where a false floor used to house inventory of alcohol in the 30's.

Modern Pella windows throughout, and ductless AC with economy heat pump settings for fall/spring, allowing you to run your boiler less to save on energy costs.

Unique millwork throughout separates the living and dining, storage in this home is outstanding for an original urban home.

The original crest of the family that built the home adorns the knobs and lights in the home.  Dining room below has a rare combination of corner built-ins, and 20's era buffet built-in, typically you see one, but not both, a blend of elements from the 20's and 30's.

Current owners renovated the kitchen to modernize its functionality while maintaining the classic cabinetry vibe.  This is a remarkable space for an urban home.   Adding the grandeur of the main floor from an entertaining and hosting perspective.

No expense was spared on this kitchen remodel, even the faucet is motion sensing for water conservation and ease of use.

Breakfast nook makes for an excellent social space and serves as the coveted "mud-room" leading to the fenced back lawn.

Upper level media room is one of a kind, all the pleasures of a huge family room without the cold energy of a basement.

The lower level was finished with cork flooring and mirrors as a current dance studio workout space.  An adjoining finished space currently houses their sauna, would also make a great wine cellar.

The double lot on the parkway is priceless, side-lot patio and rear lawn on the opposite side offer huge outdoor living potential for the incoming buyer.
