PARKRIDGE: $289,900 - 2331 Jefferson Ave. 3bd/2.5bth: I was out bright and early today for my first listing shoot. And boy howdy.... was it every worth it!! This was a STUNNING rehab that had all my excitement triggers firing immediately!! This is an American Foursquare home that was built in the 1920's. And I'm loving how much of the original home the owners have kept, mixed in some modern touches, and created an outcome that is just awesome!!
That big front porch was exciting just from the street. But when I walked in the front door, oh my mercy!!! The original hardwood floors have been redone beautifully!! Then I see these dark stained post an beams framing the living room. Then I saw the exposed brick from the original fireplace with that black and white geo tile hearth!!!! Then to my left was the staircase with a beautiful diamond window half way up.
The kitchen is all brand new!! Y'all, those counters are black leathered granite!!!!! It is so pretty and so soft!! And look close at the backsplash tile work..... tiny subway tiles layed in a herringbone pattern!! And the kitchen leads to the laundry area that includes new tile flooring and those wood and pipe open shelving. Just off the laundry room is the cutest study nook, complete with shiplap on the walls!!
There is a nice sized bedroom on the main level as well as one of the full baths. But go up the stairs and immediately see that landing area.... a great common area that could be used in a variety of ways..... a homework area, small tv area, reading nook........ But walk through that door to the 2nd level porch. I love that bed swing, and with the morning sun shining in, I could just imagine what a great place this would be to relax with a cup of coffee and my Bible before starting each day.
Now..... for the glory!! Take a look at that master suite!!!! More exposed brick and gorgeous light streaming in. There's a beautiful sliding door in front of the bathroom. And oh that bathroom!!!! Just take it all in..... clawfoot tub, huge walk-in shower, double vanities, and that closet. It is a serene oasis!
Photographing this home was pure joy for me!
