Description:

Nestled under a stately tree canopy in the Fountain of Youth neighborhood, this sweet North City cottage has more than one surprise in store for you. Watch your garden grow from the shady front porch and get acquainted with the neighbors the old-fashioned way.

On the other side of the beautiful front door lies a traditional living/dining room combination with diffused sunshine streaming in under the window canopies. The honey-hued bamboo flooring continues into the front bedroom.  A sunny room, it opens to the main bathroom shared by the master in the center of the house. Retaining a period look, the new tiles with black insets are reminiscent of the 20s and the cast iron sink is an original.

The first surprise is the generous kitchen. Measuring 14’9 x 11’5 with a 4’2 x 6’5 alcove, you can create the type of workspace your culinary muse has been dreaming about and still have room for all the armchair cooks who come to offer their advice. A handy half bath is nearby for easy access.

The second unexpected treat is the 23’2 x 13’6 family room at the back of the house. Overlooking the backyard through the French doors, this spacious gathering room is great place for movie night. The back deck is ready for action whether its grilling dinner or container gardening for your herbs – there’s room for both. A small thicket of plumbago stands amidst the palm trees and for the green-thumber in the group, the backyard is a sunny oasis for growing flowers and veggies. An attached carport keeps your vehicle under cover and off the street.

Ballard Avenue is a single block running perpendicular to Magnolia Avenue – known for its extraordinary canopy of live oaks (yes, there are some magnolias too!) and the Fountain of Youth which some of you may remember from summer holidays. It may be worth a visit to FOY just to see if it works. It’s definitely worth a visit to check out the cottage and we’ll be waiting for you on the porch.
