Five-bedroom traditional home available in Highland Park
The traditional home at 4417 Southern Ave. in Highland Park provides three floors of functional living space, a covered outdoor living area and a guest apartment above the two-car detached garage. The three-level residence is two blocks from Highland Park Village and one block from Bradfield Elementary School and offers proximity to dining and shopping options. It is listed by Karla Trusler with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty for $2,079,000.
Quality details are evident throughout the home, which was custom built in 2008, said Trusler. The exterior has architectural cast-stone detail that complements the brickwork. Inside, wide-plank wood flooring is found throughout most of the design, as are solid doors, precise tilework, generous closets and high-efficiency systems. These, together with a simple, symmetrical floor plan, millwork, high ceilings and an abundance of windows, make the home adaptable to traditional, transitional and modern furnishings, said Trusler.
A center hall flanked by formal living and dining rooms widens to reveal a curved staircase. The family room at the back of the home is adjacent to a white kitchen with marble counters, stainless appliances, a commercial-grade range and a breakfast area. Just off the family room is an outdoor living area with a covered dining, cooking and living space anchored by a large woodburning fireplace.
A second center hall upstairs creates a wide gallery that leads to five bedroom suites, including the master retreat, and a large laundry/utility room. The third level consists of a sixth bedroom, a bath, a game room and a craft room or home office. A stained-glass window saved from the original house crowns a dormer window at the top of the staircase. A gated side driveway accesses the two-car garage.
