This home has been in the same family since 1937 and an ambiance of an era gone by is prevalent in every square inch of this solidly, well-built home. The original owner was a lumber importer and TLC has been lavished in every corner while maintaining the homes original character and charm. Step into the living room onto the original heart pine floors and eyes will be drawn to the beautiful Alabama marble fireplace where many family pictures have been taken. Further to the right is a Danny Lipford renovated family room where a gorgeous brick fireplace catches the eye. This room has an abundance of windows allowing lots of natural light to flood the space. To the left of the formal living room is a light and airy formal dining room where many family gatherings have been enjoyed. Just beyond the dining room is a breakfast room with built-in storage along one wall. The cozy kitchen has butcher block counter tops, pretty white cabinets and plantation shutters. The butler's pantry and built-in ironing board evoke the simplicity of a bygone era. There is a master bedroom on the first floor with hardwood floors and a walk in closet. The en suite master bath has a garden tub and marble topped vanity. There is an additional first floor half bath for guests. On the second floor are three spacious bedrooms all with original heart pine flooring and walk in closets along with a full bath in the hall. Stepping into the backyard of this corner lot, one will find privacy, if desired, but also an openness for cookouts on the huge bricked patio shaded by beautiful oak trees. If a more secluded spot is in order, there is a bricked patio off the family room on the side of the home. This home is situated not only on the corner but on a double lot so there is room for a pool which is nearly unheard of in Midtown. For some "nuts and bolts" of the house, there are two HVAC units, a new roof installed a year ago, loads of closets and storage space, a garage (highly prized in the area) and room at the head of the garage for a workshop or additional storage. For energy efficiency, all windows have been reglazed and the home is set up to accommodate a whole house generator. Come visit and be ready to truly fall in love with a wonderful home where many new memories can be made.
