Looking for a hip home with minimal maintenance? This 2,000-square-foot Columbia-Tusculum abode is calling your name. Its modern vibe hits you the moment you step through the front door.
To the right, a study with sliding glass walls provides a quiet retreat from the rest of the home’s shotgun-style open floor plan, which offers a natural flow for entertaining. A spacious dining area leads into a sleek kitchen featuring glossy white cabinets, quartz counters, subway tile backsplash, a wine fridge, and an eat-in bar. Right off the kitchen, an open living space opens up to a walkout back deck overlooking the intimate, fenced-in backyard. The living space also offers access to the basement, the home’s ultimate entertainment space. Here you’ll find a rustic bar made with reclaimed wood, a carpeted media room, and a half bath.
Upstairs, the home’s second floor boasts three decently sized bedrooms (two of which are connected via a Jack and Jill full bath) and a conveniently located laundry room. The master suite has to be our favorite room on this level, though. It comes complete with vaulted ceilings, a walk-in closet, an adjoining master bath with a double vanity and walk-in shower, and loads of natural light, thanks to a massive window.
Perhaps the home’s most beneficial features are its Silver LEED certification and 15-year tax abatement, which saves the owner more than $10,000 in taxes each year. Green features include a high-efficiency HVAC system and insulated windows. Other perks include wood floors throughout and a two-car garage with a contemporary glass garage door. Best of all, the home is located in the heart of Columbia-Tusculum and walking distance from popular eateries and bars like Jeff Ruby’s Precinct, Taglio, and Pearl’s Bar. The neighborhood is also just a quick bike ride from Mt. Lookout, Hyde Park, Oakley, and Walnut Hills.
