Welcome to Belhaven's secret, urban oasis—6 Park Avenue. An historic craftsman bungalow with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths all on one level (plus a rental opportunity below), the home is tucked away on a Belhaven street that few outside the neighborhood even know exists. Countless thoughtful upgrades and enhancements with a watchful eye toward preserving the history, style, and character of this home have resulted in an effortless blend of old and new. Soaring 10.5 foot ceilings; rich wood floors; beautiful double-hung craftsman windows (many with original wavy glass) restored by stained glass master craftsman Andy Young; a fireplace mantel designed and crafted by renowned woodworker Fletcher Cox—the list of noteworthy features goes on and on. All three bathrooms were recently taken to the studs, including all new wiring, plumbing, and fixtures. Cararra marble countertops, vintage-look marble basketweave flooring, and premium, period-appropriate light fixtures provide a fresh, updated look while also staying true to the original style of the home. Soft-close cabinet doors and drawers, cleverly-concealed electrical outlets, and custom-designed medicine cabinets with beveled mirrors are just a few surprising features one would not expect to see in a home of this age. The primary bath offers double vanities, a large walk-in shower with bench, and new double-hung wood windows with custom-made wood-frame screens. The large kitchen offers plenty of space—while the current owners have a kitchen table and chairs in this area, it could easily accommodate an island. Slate floors and dark lower cabinets provide an appealing contrast to the crisp, white walls, further accentuating the soaring ceilings. The perfect bar area has glass-front cabinets, a second sink, and additional storage. A study off the formal dining room provides a stylish and functional work-from-home space with its built-ins and task lighting. Meticulously maintained, the entire exterior of the home was scraped and painted just a few years ago and the majority of the interior has been recently repainted. Recessed incandescent lighting has been replaced with LED fixtures. A sizeable deck off the kitchen overlooks the expansive park-like backyard complete with a carefully cultivated, bountiful vegetable garden and provides the perfect spot for crawfish boils or neighborhood gatherings while also offering covered storage below. In addition to the large backyard, there is a fenced side yard for pets that is accessible from a spacious laundry room with plenty of extra storage. Another exciting and potentially lucrative feature of the property is a 519 square foot downstairs apartment with full bathroom, efficiency kitchen, and separate entrance. While it would be perfect for short- or long-term rental, it could also serve as a mother-in-law suite, home office, or craft space. The possibilities are endless. (Although this space is heated and cooled, the square footage is not included in the 2,457 square feet of the home.) There is also a basement workshop area for the hobbyist. Call your realtor today to see all this unique property has to offer.
