    Description

    Situated on a cul-de-sac in the historic Kenwood neighborhood, this gracious house was designed for Charles Hawkins c.1890. Many of the details of that era remain, yet this special house has been beautifully updated. With over 5,000 sqft of living space, the home is grand and elegant, yet entirely welcoming and comfortable. The formal areas of the first level are beautifully proportioned and can be used in multiple ways. Entertain in style or simply enjoy cooking in the new kitchen and relaxing in the adjacent family room. An extraordinary yard, with award winning plantings and terraced deck, brings joy to summer days. A striking carved wood staircase with original stained-glass leads to 6 bedrooms and 3 full baths on upper levels. The Primary bedroom offers a new luxurious bath, a walk-in closet, cedar closet and seating area with gas fireplace. Two additional bedrooms share a bath and the bright sunporch overlooking the lush yard. Up the second stairway to the third level there is a large ensuite bedroom nestled under the eaves, along with two additional bedrooms and another full bath. The basement partially finished with a work out area, space for watching television, a cedar closet, full laundry and a second kitchen. All systems have been updated and the a/c is zoned. Located on a beautiful block, this property offers space inside for each family member to carve out space for their particular activities, and beautiful space outdoors to relax and enjoy nature - and the magnificent magnolia tree that blossoms each spring. A once in decades opportunity to write the next chapter of this home's amazing history!
