Located between Howell Mill Road and Northside Drive in Berkeley Park, this “impeccably maintained home” does its best to blend the old with the new.
With an addition wrapped around the original 1950 structure, what once was a smaller, more intimate home now sports five bedrooms and four bathrooms in 3,359 square feet.
Updated in 2013, new touches include refinished hardwoods, fresh paint, and modern kitchen and baths. However, one original bath remains, along with the telephone nook.
Also inside, there’s quite the collection of interesting angles, room layouts, and stark lines that seem to try just a bit too hard, in some instances, to be modern.
The listing claims the home was built for entertaining, thanks to the large dining room, screen room, and spacious back deck with additional screened-in space.
Also outside, covered parking for two cars includes an electric car charging station, while that driveway of pavers offers lots of additional parking when entertaining family and friends.
The fenced backyard is said to be “large enough to garden or play, yet not overwhelming,” but there are no listing photos to confirm its actual size.
For those who do want to garden, though, the natural water collection system for irrigation would be handy.
The current asking price of $769,000 is well in line for the neighborhood, although the home’s eclectic touches mean it excels at standing out.
