Property Description

Well this is it ... A private oasis in Andersonville featured on HGTV! No need for that weekend cottage up in Michigan. This custom home combines the best of both urban city living and country cottage chill ... all located on a spacious corner lot with unlimited natural light, 10 perennial blooming flower beds, a private pool, multiple terraced outdoor decks, luxury spa features throughout, and all within walking distance to the best restaurants and shopping that Clark Street has to offer in Andersonville. Previously designed by an architect/owner who balanced equal attention to quality living both indoors and outdoors. Forget the boring typical home designs and feast your eyes on this architectural masterpiece. The first floor features a formal living and dining area designed to delight your eyes with flowing architectural details such as an open plan design, doorway arches, lighted columns, recessed lighting, multi-layered soffits, built-in china cabinet, custom made wall sconces, marble inlayed wooden floors, and stained glass. The kitchen and pool area are the obvious heart of this home, with multiple connected spaces making it possible to host private pool parties for family and friends! The pool is built into a furnished deck and is both mineral-based and heated. There are multiple open-air decked areas, as well as a furnished, enclosed screened porch to enjoy spring through fall, with a custom-made martini bar. There are outdoor and indoor showers for guests, including a multiple person steam room. The second floor has been reserved for 3 private bedrooms, all designed to make the most use of space and architectural details with vaulted ceilings, custom niches, skylights, recessed lighting, multi-layered soffits, and more unique touches. The master bedroom includes a fireplace and built-in bar with sink and refrigerator. The attention to detail is amazing. The semi-finished basement is ideal for exercising, a playroom, or even a home office. Situated prominently on the corner of Paulina and Gregory, every last inch of land was designed with flowering plants that attract an endless parade of Monarch and other butterflies throughout the spring and summer. Remarkable? Well, the famous, Bette Midler (@bettemidler) thought so in her tweet about the gorgeous milkweed flowers growing in this unique, urban butterfly garden. Many recent improvements include a new roof, freshly painted inside and out, and new carpeting.
