Exquisite & Thoughtful Crocker Highlands
Remodel Features 3 Bedroom/3 Bathrooms

Fresh from an exquisite and thoughtful remodel, this Prairie home enjoys a wealth of modern upgrades while maintaining all of its original charm.  A custom oasis set atop a quiet street in Crocker Highlands and walking distance to the heart of Lakeshore Avenue and Piedmont, this home enjoys sunshine and expansive views of the western sky.  The main floor is divided into a perfect layout, with private bedrooms on one side and public rooms on the other.

Prairie-Style Home
Approximately 2000 Sq Ft of Modern Living Space

The warm and inviting living room is illuminated by day through a classic picture window and by night with a unique Heath Ceramics fireplace.  French doors open to an attached bonus sunroom that is perfect for a nursery or a home office.  The expansive dining room and kitchen have all of the current amenities for the modern chef (Wolf stove, Carrara marble countertops, farmhouse sink and custom cabinets, among others) perfectly married with the fine details of the 1920s (original hardware, classic light fixtures, recessed ceilings and oak hardwood floors).  This great entertaining room spills out onto a back patio with a lively fountain adjacent to bright, detached art studio. The three rear terraces of a combined nearly 1000 square feet provide multiple al fresco locations in which to dine, sunbathe, enjoy the city sunset views or install a hot tub and stargaze.  The privacy of this coveted property is a rare asset, with no neighbors across the street and a backyard secluded by mature landscaping.

Immaculate Master Bedroom & Bath

Each of the two upstairs bedrooms has been fully remodeled, with the master bedroom featuring an extraordinary array of built-in electric closets and drawers.  The brand new master bath boasts heated floors, a walk-in shower with subway tile and Grohe fixtures.  The second new custom bath features Carrara marble and a cast iron, deep bathtub.

Downstairs Space Flexibility

Downstairs opens onto flexible space that has been fully upgraded.  An additional bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette can be locked off and used as an in-law with a separate entrance and its own storage space.  The spacious laundry area connects directly to the attached garage.  Further downstairs space can be used as storage, a workshop or a wine cellar.
