Update April 11th, 2022. This home closed this morning at $1,305,888. It had quite a few offers and several over a million while being listed at $899,900. It was a 7 day cash close and its closed. If you want to know how to get over asking for your home, give me a call. The marketing in this seller’s market is unique and your agent needs to know how best to handle the flurry of activity. If you’re on for over a few days, something is wrong. I can help. This is one I won’t forget for awhile!
Listed March 24th, offers due March 27th.
One of Vining’s classic homes in one of Vining’s most desirable neighborhoods is on the market for the first time in its history. This home was custom built with love and incredible attention to detail by the sellers, who are now looking to pass a bit of their family history forward.
With four sides of brick, this traditional home is timeless in more ways than one. Built to incorporate century-plus antique heart pine flooring from the seller’s parent’s home, this home is a legacy looking for its next caretaker.
The beautiful wide-plank flooring is found throughout most of the home. A traditional floorplan, the formal living spaces flank the entry hall and beautiful staircase, while the kitchen and keeping room look out over the greenery in the back yard.
Wainscotting, detailed woodwork, and functional shutters are among the lovely and well-kept details throughout the home. The rooms are beautifully proportioned with a lot of natural light in every room.
Fully renovated, the kitchen has high quality custom cabinetry, granite countertops and plenty of integrated lighting. Other amenities are a generous double sink, center island, and cabinet paneled appliances.
The kitchen and breakfast room also open onto the screened porch for 3 season indoor/outdoor living.
Adjacent to the kitchen is an enormous laundry room, with generous built-in storage, expansive granite worktops, and plenty of extra room for a freezer or beverage refrigerator.
The family room, anchored by an arched brick fireplace and hearth, opens onto the home’s expansive screened porch. The stunning heart pine flooring continues through this room as well, adding warmth and depth to the space.
Decks are great, but a screened porch in the south cannot be beat! Shaded in the summer and sheltered in cooler months, it becomes an extension of the home’s living areas with the added bonus of breeze and bird song.
While the home is at the top of a large hilly lot, the areas just off the screened porch and the walkout basement are flat and landscaped, making for a usable private space for bird watching or gardening and plenty of play area for children and pets.
With a full master suite on each floor, which include ensuite bathrooms and walk- in closets, living arrangements are flexible and future-proofed, ready for aging in place or multi-generational living.
The secondary bedrooms are also generously sized and there is room for expansion over the garage.
While the walk-out basement is finished and comfortable (with another brick fireplace to chase away any chill) there are stubbed-in utilities for another bathroom, ready for expansion. The home was custom built in 1975 and underwent extensive renovations about 15 years ago including mechanical upgrades, adding a house vac system and an automatic generator to seamlessly handle any power outages.
Set on almost an acre, the wooded lot is private and quiet. 4270 Lansdowne Drive is on a double cul de sac street in an already quiet neighborhood, meaning through traffic (and traffic noise in general) is non-existent.
Close to Cochise Club, Vinings Village, many of the areas best private schools, and in a quiet and walkable neighborhood, this home has a lot to offer, both in location and in impeccably maintained square footage. If you are interested in more details, visit the listing at my website and give me a call to set up an in-person viewing.
