This light-filled, greystone on a beautiful block between Southport and Greenview is ideal for those who love a perfect mix of rich, old-world style and high-end, modern finishes. The space is filled with kilim-style rugs, skylights, built-in bookcases, and has a gorgeous (and massive) master bath.
The home falls within Lakeview’s community area of Graceland West—a tiny row of streets that features historic mansions and modern homes. Just around the corner is Southport’s selection of cafes, restaurants and boutiques. A handful of other million-dollar mansions are listed in the neighborhood, but few match the perks and pedigree of this one.
The entire interior is updated but the 1900s vintage charm of the 5-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home remains intact. A large island with bar seating separates the kitchen and living room making it great for entertaining. And large floor-to-ceiling bay windows makes the entire area feel light and airy.
The home also features a multi-level outdoor space that’s wrapped with greenery and bougainvilleas. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a wall of wood-framed windows which overlook a landscaped garage roof deck.
Just off to the side is an epic master bathroom that comes with a skylight that falls just above an oversized tub surrounded by jade-colored tiles.
In 2001, the house sold for about half a million dollars. But after renovations in 2005, it was sold for nearly triple that. This is the second time the home has been on the market this year and it returns this week for $1,495,000.
