4 Bedrooms/3 Bathrooms
Built circa 1905 as an upscale, suburban Victorian "Queen Anne" bungalow, this turn-of-the-century beauty has been lovingly transformed into a sprawling, period-styled four bedroom / three bathroom city home that features Carl Mattison designs throughout.
Sitting atop the hillcrest of Oakland Avenue between Milledge Avenue and Cherokee Place, the New-Orleans-style facade warmly greets you with its flickering gas lantern and three impeccably restored fleur-de-lis stained glass transoms spread evenly along the expansive west-facing front porch. Step inside the front door and you’re immediately greeted with the dark richness of original, restored heart-pine floors in the seven-foot wide original center hallway that’s surrounded by detailed wainscoting, eleven-foot ceilings and designer-touches all around.
The living room to the right features two sets of original pocket doors, a coffered ceiling and original diagonal decorative fireplace with updated tile work. The bedroom on the left has an en-suite-entrance to the ginormous hall/guest bath enshrined with over-sized subway tile, hexagonal floor tile and a restored 110-year-old wash basin original to the home.
Make your way into the dining room for the coziest of open spaces with yet another diagonal decorative fireplace and a view straight into the kitchen where the magic really unfolds. A cool gray cabinet package with 42″ uppers, soft-close drawers and pillow-emboss doors envelops this current yet classic room. The main counters are leathered Absolute Black granite while the 4′x8′ eat-in island is topped with Vermont “Eureka Danby” marble. The master-on-main is outfitted with a walk-in closet (a luxury all its own in Grant Park), a marbled coffee bar and a master bathroom to absolutely die for featuring an over-sized, dual-head glass shower surrounded in luxurious marble, a restored claw-foot tub salvaged from a Park Avenue home, and a dual vanity topped with 5–foot-tall, reclaimed wood mirrors along with three adjustable sconce lights.
Upstairs you’ll find two generously sized, light-filled bedrooms with plenty of closet space, a den area, a third full bathroom with dual vanity and more attic storage than you’ll know what to do with.
Step out back onto the spacious screened porch with ceiling fan overlooking the fully fenced back yard. Down below, you have a stand-up crawl space for extra storage. There’s even an enclosed area under the screened porch for yard tools and lawn equipment. Parking for two is in the far back yard off one of the neighborhood’s last remaining cobblestone alleys. Walk to Grant Park, Zoo Atlanta, the Grant Park Farmer’s Market, tons of restaurants and coffee shops as well as the Neighborhood Charter School.
