Complete Craftsman Renovation with added space and modern conveniences. Deep half acre lot with easy walk to Marietta Square and the Mountain. Only two blocks to tennis courts. In this wonderful old intown neighborhood you won't be looking at the blank side wall of a house which minor changes aside looks suspiciously like yours. This is NOT a Builder Subdivision! This house has distinctive details, not a formula. Good as builder formulas can be, they don't always echo the drummer you march to. This house has a unique beat. The trim is beautifully finished, lustrous hand-select pine, styled with the Craftsman love of natural materials, simplicity of form and skilled woodworking. It creates a sense of peace and tranquility and is pleasing to the eye. The floors are full thickness hardwood except where practical considerations dictate tile. The ceillings are nine feet throughout. In the living dining and master bedrooms ceilings are original beadboard. The long and narrow lot dictated a long house oriented north to south This means that the house has the glow of wonderful natural light throughout via its many true divided light insulated windows. The south facing breakfast and family rooms especially benefit from this in winter months when the oaks have lost their leaves. Those same oaks make the two back porches shady havens in hot summer months. The upstairs porch feels like a treehouse in summer when those leaves are up, like a romantic moonlight escape when they are down. The swings and hammock give you good advice- RELAX!! The rooms are graciously roomy, but no, this isn't an open floor plan, set up like a factory loft. The open floor plan seemed like a fine idea for a household of two adults, but this house has lovely space to retreat to away from all those other people who were imported into your fantasy, i.e. kids, in-laws, people obsessing over things that make you wince, (you name it). You can hold a party in this house easily. It has great entertainment space, great prep space, great serving space. It was designed for wander and mingle, but you can always find one of several private corners where a few people can discuss their special interests without monopolizing the party. Check out the photos or better yet, visit the house; this is a great place to be together and alone too.
