The Craftsman style of this Winnona Park brick bungalow, with its board-and-batten shutters and the decorative corbels under the eaves, belle the modern five-bedroom three-bath space with a gorgeous open floor plan, sky-high ceilings, and loads of natural light. Imagine enjoying a fantastic meal at one of the great places on nearby Decatur Square, then walking a couple of blocks to The Corner Pub for a round of craft beer before the scant three-block walk to your Winnona Park home. Prefer a great home-made meal? No problem. The kitchen is a chef’s dream, with a gourmet six-burner, two-oven Italian range – complete with stainless steel vent hood and a convenient pot filler just above the burners – and a bevy of custom cabinetry, including a microwave space and a generous island with shiplap siding and stone surface. The walk-in pantry is just off of the kitchen and features its own wet bar, and take a quick, casual meal in the breakfast nook.
The open space is adorned with breathtaking details, from the exposed beams in the living area, to the lovely gas fireplace, to the Craftsman-style glass globe chandelier over the dining section (where there’s room enough to seat 10 hungry guests to enjoy that meal you’ve whipped up). From here you’ll have soaring views of the expansive back yard and its gardens. When you want to get even closer to nature, there’s a covered patio for drinks or grill parties, with a ceiling fan ready to help extend the outdoor season. A two-car garage is here to keep your cars protected from the elements, which is handy as the Decatur Square Marta is so very close by.
The home’s main level also includes a guest suite, complete with personal closet and easy access to the hall bathroom. But the other four bedrooms are upstairs, including a spacious owner’s suite with features you expect from a home of this caliber: a large walk-in closet with sliding barn doors, a marble bath, a walk-in shower with tile seat, and double vanity. The remaining bedrooms each feature a personal closet and share a full bathroom. Look for more lovely touches throughout, including hardwood floors throughout and herringbone tile treatments in kitchen and baths.
