This dollhouse of a home in Mt. Lookout is one of the most charming structures we’ve ever seen. Window boxes, a perfectly symmetrical exterior, and a whimsical front porch make this one-of-a-kind. The sale is pending, so someone must have agreed, but we can’t help but daydream about the details of the $1.1 million home.
The facade immediately catches the eye with its tight front yard, mature landscaping, and stone-paved walkway. The front porch offers space for a couple of chairs and a large, wood front door serves as a perfectly grand entrance. Inside, the foyer features white wainscoting and wood floors that extend through the rest of the first floor. Natural light floods throughout, including in the living space, where elaborate built-ins surround the fireplace, providing plenty of space for a flat-screen TV and storage for electronics.
The open concept extends into the kitchen, where a 12-foot eat-in island steals the show. White cabinets and a Wolf range line the back wall and a massive commercial-grade refrigerator and wine fridge sit off to the side with additional counter space perfect for a coffee station. A quaint breakfast nook, complete with built-in banquette seating, overlooks the backyard and stays true to the whimsy of the home, while the formal dining room is separated by a set of glass panel doors and additional built-ins for storage.
The owner’s suite, also on the first floor, offers a spa-like vibe with a main bedroom and separate sitting area, plus a massive walk-in closet. The serene bathroom is almost completely white with marble counters and floors and a subway-tiled shower stall. On the second floor, there are two additional bedrooms with a Jack-and-Jill bathroom and laundry room. There’s also a third level with a partial fourth bedroom and study with a full bath.
The lower level offers ample space for entertaining with a full-size fridge, bar, loads of counter space, and rustic shiplap throughout. In the backyard, the magic continues with a detached cabin, which already features a fireplace and a drink fridge, but could be a perfect den, gym, or art studio—really, the possibilities are endless.
One of the home’s best perks is that it’s LEED Gold certified, which means it’s tax abated through 2031. An eco-friendly home with a wooded yard and a log cabin out back? What more could you ask for?
