Hidden among a grove of mature trees, this historic North Avondale stunner has been updated with loads of modern amenities that have us swooning. The white stucco home hardly blends in against the backdrop of trees and shrubs, but thoughtful hunter green trim beautifully ties in with the surrounding greenery.
The entrance, geometric in style, is easily accessible from the driveway and framed by stone pedestals perfect for planters. The front door is subtle and tucked away, but step inside, and you’ll see why this house shines.
To the left, past the charming grand staircase, the dining room features board and batten walls that add dimension to the simplicity of the space. A small bar marries the dining and kitchen spaces together, offering a place to serve food when entertaining or a spot for guests to mingle.
The shotgun kitchen is spacious with a long countertop on one side, a small island in the middle, and a full wall of cabinets on the opposite wall. Dark wood elements like the hood and island pop against the white cabinets, and a handful of glass doors create plenty of opportunities for showcasing your favorite china.
The storage options in this space are plentiful: Think built-in wine racks, open shelving, pantry cabinets, and deep drawers set along the perimeter, perfect for stowing away kitchen tools. Straight ahead, a breezy pantry doubles as a coffee bar.
In the family room, dark wood dominates, creating the ultimate entertaining space. Two sets of glass doors on either side of the mantel lead to a covered patio that serves as a fantastic outdoor TV room.
Perhaps the coolest space in the home is the first-floor bonus room that could be used as an entertaining space or an office with its massive floor-to-ceiling arched window that draws in boatloads of natural light. A set of French doors open to a sun-filled, spacious playroom.
Upstairs, the entire second floor—including all five of the bedrooms—features hardwood floors. The massive walk-in closet in the renovated owner’s suite flanks the en-suite bath, which features heated floors, a chandelier, a walk-in glass shower, and a double vanity that overlooks the yard.
Out back, the wrap-around driveway is easily large enough for a basketball court and the wooded yard offers space and privacy for the whole family to enjoy.
