It is not often a home of this distinction and style comes to the market. As a contributing home to the Rossmoyne Historic District, 1149 Cordova Avenue is a 1924 French Revival set behind tall hedges and beautifully manicured grounds. Truly a wonderful opportunity for a very fortunate buyer.
The floor plan of nearly 3,000 square feet consists of 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The front entrance is through a charming, covered porch which opens into the foyer. The formal living room provides natural light from the multiple casement windows on the north side and includes a large fireplace, hardwood flooring, and access to the 2nd entrance off Cordova. The formal dining room is nicely sized and features mural painted walls commissioned by Eva LaRue, the homes prior owner. The kitchen has granite counters, large casement window, recessed lighting, ample cabinetry, access to the side yard, and a built-in nook. Off the central hall are the 3 downstairs bedrooms and family room along with a bathroom. Each of the bedrooms includes large closets and hardwood flooring. The family room is a pleasant surprise to a home of this era. The space offers another fireplace, French doors, and access to the rear yard.
The 2nd floor includes a large landing area along with the primary bedroom and ensuite 5th bedroom. The primary bedroom is a true suite with a sitting area, large full bathroom, very large walk-in closet, and balcony. Through a set of French doors, the balcony showcases the mountains to the north and city views to the south.
The front, side, and rear yards have been professionally designed and landscaped with an assortment of plants, flowers, hedges, and walkways. The rear yard offers a pool and spa and a sitting area that overlooks the space. The lighting, interior and exterior, and fountain are controlled by a central Lutron smart system which is an added bonus. Additional features of note include a detached garage, seismic retrofitting, central heating and air conditioning, and copper plumbing.
