CHEROKEE BOULEVARD TREASURE! This one-of-a-kind, beautiful home gracefully situated on 1.2 acres captures the breathtaking view of the famous Dogwood Trail. Enjoy overlooking the Boulevard from the covered front porch with privacy from your perch and take in the park-like atmosphere of your own lush lawn with flower beds, mature trees, and beautiful bird species that frequently visit. This home is best described as a 'rambler.' Its humble cottage-like front exposure will surprise you that it is almost 6,000 square feet complete with five bedrooms - two of which are on the main level! Upon entering the inviting foyer, to your right is a lovely music room with coffered ceiling and built-in cabinets and bookcase. A separate den also to the right could lend itself as an office or perhaps a bourbon tasting room with privacy offered by pocket doors and is complete with custom built-ins, book/art lighting, and a gas fireplace. As you pass the formal dining room which also opens to the front porch, you enter an open hall space with custom brick flooring, a full wet bar complete with ice maker and beverage refrigerator, all of which opens to the back patio and pool and also hosts the powder half bathroom. Behind the sliding barn door is one of the best kept secrets of this home. Originally the kitchen, this space has been transformed into a DREAM mud room complete with a laundry area, desk and keeping areas, expansive storage for coats, shoes, and bags, additional refrigerator, special drawers to accommodate wrapping paper or craft supplies, as well as a dumb-waiter hoisting up to 200 pounds that travels down to one of FIVE garages bringing up all your necessities or sending down luggage for your next vacation. Returning to the hall, you step into the completely new gourmet kitchen with vaulted ceiling, custom cabinets with nothing left to spare for someone who truly loves to cook, custom walnut island countertop, Viking range, double ovens, walk-in hidden pantry, large bay window banquet table space, a cozy seating area with gas fireplace, and all of this is adjacent to the family/great room with 20' vaulted ceilings that also views and opens to the back patio, lawn, and salt water Roman style pool complete with an in-floor cleaning system, 8' deep end with a tanning ledge, LED lighting, electric heat pump to give you additional swimming months, and six side fountains plus a bubbler in the ledge for added ambiance while entertaining - all of which can be controlled with a remote control from inside the house. The house is designed in soothing colors, is bathed in natural sunlight at all parts of the day, completely private, and has a comfortable feel with casual elegance. Once outside, you can appreciate the upgrades made when putting in the pool. A retaining wall was installed to create a large level space, environmentally friendly permeable pavers allow rain to soak through and into the groundwater supply with a drainage system below to move excess water around and away from the house. An outdoor kitchen was planned for and the raised patio area is plumbed for gas, electric, and water as well as footers were placed below the landscaping for a roof structure and masonry fireplace. The pool equipment is out of sight and located in 'garage three' with a coded entry for pool maintenance. The spacious garages offer plenty of protected parking for vehicles, a boat, and equipment. There is a large climate controlled storage area, additional coat hook area, and a space currently housing sports equipment once you enter from the first garage. There is also a half bath in the garage which is great for outdoor play time, for the avid gardener, or for anyone working at the house without tracking into the main level. The second floor of the house features three bedrooms, two full baths, and a 'pajama lounge' or common hang out space/play area between the bedrooms complete with built-in desk.
