$1,125,000 289 Norwood Avenue NE, Atlanta, GA 30317
Perfect blend of history and modern sophistication with this exquisite 5 bed, 3 bath home. Originally constructed in 1890 and meticulously renovated in 2022. Positioned in the heart of Kirkwood, you are welcomed by a sprawling Southern front porch which leads you inside to rich oak floors which have been extended, creating a cohesive and visually pleasing flow throughout the entire home. The expansion not only introduced the concept of an owner's suite and beautiful ensuite bath but also an inspiring art studio on the main level and a versatile frosted glass closet, which can serve as extra storage room or even a second laundry area. With 10-foot ceilings throughout and generously sized bedrooms, the residence exudes spaciousness that is further enhanced by the presence of beautiful decorative fireplaces in each room.
The open concept living room and kitchen have been artfully designed allowing for the inclusion of an inviting dry bar and wine fridge. This new transformation seamlessly converts the living and dining areas into a unified space for entertaining. The kitchen, the true highlight of the owners 2022 renovation, showcases a stunning Ilve Vent Hood and rotisserie-oven, complemented by a convenient pot filler for effortless culinary endeavors.
Additionally, the inclusion of a new screened porch provides an enchanting outdoor retreat allowing you to relish the beauty of the expansive backyard. The renovation also prioritized practicality, evident in the addition of a second pulldown attic complete with shelving, offering more efficient storage solutions in this historic home. This location offers the convenient proximity to Bessie Branham Park, local boutiques and charming dining establishments. Only moments away from Candler Park, Decatur and Oakhurst, this home seamlessly integrates historical allure with contemporary city living, all while providing an unmatched and captivating in-town living experience.
