Nestled among shade trees on a beautifully manicured lot, this three bedroom/two bath four-sides brick Tudor-Revival-inspired storybook cottage was one of the first 14 houses built in idyllic Avondale Estates, a community founded in 1924 by George Francis Willis after visiting Stratford-upon-Avon in England. Its timeless style is apparent at very first glance, from the iron nameplate hanging from the lamppost to the arch top entry door to the original hardwood floors and crown molding that are featured throughout. Immediately through the entry is the fireside living room, accented with a beautifully preserved mantel. To the left, French doors lead to a graceful brick-floor sunroom with floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides that flood the room with natural light. Continue to a formal dining area with a built-in display cabinet, through a cozy sitting area with a butler's pantry, to the fully renovated eat-in kitchen offering stainless steel appliances and vent hood, marble countertops, a gas range and plenty of storage and display cabinet space. Admire the oh-so-charming candlestick phone set in a cozy hall nook. The beautiful primary suite offers a custom closet and a renovated ensuite bathroom featuring double vanities, marble countertops and a frameless walk-in shower. Through double doors off the kitchen, roam to the expansive back deck that overlooks a well-groomed backyard oasis, the perfect place to relax and entertain. Hardscaping includes a pergola, a wood deck and pavers. Also on the property is a two-story carriage house that boasts upstairs one-bedroom unit & a ground floor studio which offers another 1229 additional finished sq ft. Located in an idyllic neighborhood named on the National Register of Historic Places, this home occupies a truly scenic setting, with access to greenspace, a wonderful swim & tennis club, a lake and a lake house that often serves as a wedding venue due to its picturesque backdrop. Convenient to swim and tennis amenities, this cottage is a rare opportunity to step back in time while enjoying all modern conveniences.
