Description:

You can tell immediately that a master gardener calls this North City cottage home! Native plants and shade trees thrive on this 1/4 acre property bringing welcome shade. Follow the path from the sidewalk to a quintessential front porch that serves as an outdoor living room all year round. A peaceful spot to greet the day with a cup of coffee while the birds wake and start to sing.

Living and dining room share a large area, separated by contemporary columns. Windows line the space inviting in soft natural light. Tall ceilings, picture frame wood floors and classic moldings are all original. Sleeping quarters are tucked off a short hallway. Main bedroom is very private and enjoys a walk-in closet and en-suite bath. The owner loved her slipper tub as will any bath lover who likes a long soak. A generous size, this room can easily accommodate a sitting nook too. 2nd bedroom has a wall of built-ins and it overlooks the front porch. 3rd bedroom is also large and shares the hall bath.

The floor plan was smart when first designed and hasn’t missed a beat in today’s living. Thoughtfully arranged for maximum privacy with no wasted space, you can easily put your personal stamp on it. Kitchen and family room span the back of the house making for easy flow out to the studio and back yard. Laundry closet is tucked in a corner of the family room – multitasking made simple. One door leads to a “bridge” that takes you to the conditioned studio. Built to be a screened room, it was later enclosed and makes a great flex room or future guest suite if you add a bath. Full of windows, an artist would be delighted with the light.

A stately magnolia is the centerpiece of the garden and there are soft paths leading to sitting areas and the secret garden hidden in the northeast corner. If you’re a gardener then you have come to the right place. If other outdoor recreation is your passion, let your imagination take flight – with so much room, almost anything is possible. Detached barn has a screened potting shed/workshop and the soft driveway is wide and long to keep all your cars off-street.

Flood insurance is not required here and the house sits up nicely from the street. Tree-lined sidewalks, a rich menu of architectural styles dating back to the late 1800s, a small town ambiance with neighbors who make you welcome – that’s life in Fullerwood Park. We think you’ll like it here….
