Hip. Cool. Mod. Private. Potential. Pick an adjective—they all work to describe this unique home near coveted Blue Ridge. Cool architectural lines, floor to ceiling windows and 60’s inspired interior details make this 40’s home feel way ahead of its time. Seeking privacy and nature? Sitting on a large private lot surrounded by trees, this home is just a short stroll from Carkeek Park’s Mary Ave. entrance. This Crown Hill gem in the rough has been in the same family since its inception and is ready for the next owner to transform her into the Mid-Century jewel she longs to be.
The home provides lots of space and tons of possibilities. One step into the living room and you will feel instantly transported to Mad Men. The floor to ceiling windows bring the outdoors inside and makes the space feel even more spacious and inviting. You’ll appreciate the easy access to the side garden. Just imagine the large parties you can host year around. You will love the large kitchen with endless possibilities. We can picture the super cool focal point that this kitchen could easily become once transformed into a chef’s paradise.
You will appreciate that the home has four bedrooms on the main level. The smallest of the four would make an excellent home office. All of the bedrooms feature lush green views and the primary bedroom enjoys a door to the wrap around deck.
How will you re-imagine the expansive lower level? This space was once used for roller skating and archery practice! There is clearly room for two additional bedrooms and a bathroom. There is currently a 1/4 bath which could be expanded. The other end of this spacious room would make a great family room with fireplace and garden window.
