The land on which 572 Missouri Avenue sits is the star of this quirky four-bedroom home. Lots in Columbia-Tusculum are generally small—like, 25-square-feet-small— but this one is almost triple the norm for the area.
Woods lining the yard make for a natural privacy fence, while the prime location near Alms and Ault Parks and Mt. Lookout Square keep the convenience of the city center stage. And the two-story deck is worth the price of admission alone.
Inside the transitional-style (that is, a blend of traditional and contemporary) home, the kitchen, dining, and living rooms are just open enough to feel spacious while still providing some separation. Features like galley shelving and bar seating in the kitchen are industrial and modern, while floor-to-ceiling windows anchored by columns in the dining room keep it traditional. The home was built in 1930, and features hardwood floors and charming built-in storage units.
With its Painted Lady rowhouses and riverside view, Columbia-Tusculum is a desirable part of town. And due to its hilly topography, most homeowners need to be prepared for compact urban living. Not so in this home, however, which feels more like a comfy east side estate.
