Situated in prestigious University Park near Highland Park Village and within the Bradfield School District, this fabulous 1940’s traditional residence, with a circular drive and great drive-up appeal, has been completely remodeled to perfection.

The stunning home offers approximately 3,270 square feet, two stories, four bedrooms, four baths, two living areas, two dining areas, utility room, two fireplaces, dry bar, balcony, covered porch, patio and a large backyard.
Enter to a spacious formal living room, which gleans with museum smooth floated walls trimmed with coves, hardwood floors and a dramatic stain glass window providing views of the front landscaped grounds. The space is also centered by a wood-burning fireplace, with a tile surround and a wood-carved mantle with an art niche above. Graceful arches lead to the formal living room, the rear of the home and to the second level of living, all providing for great entertaining flow. Capped by a pop-up ceiling, the elegant dining room is spacious and graced by a lovely iron chandelier, gleaming hardwoods, window coverings and also flows to the kitchen. The professional chef’s marble kitchen, with a tile backsplash, showcases richly stained custom cabinetry with glass top cabinets, an oversized island with breakfast bar, premier Viking, Asko and Ventahood stainless steel appliances, a double farm sink and a wall of abundant pantry closet space. A door leads to the outdoors. Setting the tone for a sophisticated atmosphere for entertaining, the kitchen also opens to an oversized family room, which is appointed with a marble-trimmed dry bar, with a Viking stainless wine cooler and glass top cabinets, a flat screen TV with surround sound speakers, window coverings and light-filled French doors opening to the patio. Nearby is a large downstairs bedroom, which may also be used as a study, and boasts hardwood floors, French doors opening to a large closet, and a door conveniently opening to the front covered porch. A full marble bath, with fabulous decorative tile floors, rounds out the first floor.
Second level of living is equally impressive.
