R.O. Jones selected this prestigious corner of Hillcrest and Kenneth on which to build his castle in 1923. He loved the Spanish revival of the time and commissioned this two story example of that tasteful era in residential architecture. He also executed an intelligent site plan that maximizes the advantages of such a rare parcel with in excess of 17,000 square feet of usable land.
You are warmly welcomed in the formal entry via an exquisite multi-arched portico. To the right is the formal living room with original oak floors, original moldings and trim, multi-pane windows, and a re-built wood burning fireplace. And on the left, a dining room that is large and formal as well. The kitchen has been tastefully updated with granite counters, wood cabinetry, stainless appliances, and enjoys a vista out over the large rear grounds. This ground level is completed by a wonderful family room and a remodeled powder room.
Upstairs there are three large bedrooms, two and a quarter baths, and a great home office. The master suite enjoys custom built-ins, a dressing room, a large walk-in closet, and a second closet. The large grounds provide for extravagant outdoor entertaining and as well as possible expansion potential. There is also a two car detached garage with an additional storage room. The current Owners have loved living here for over 50 years and hope the same for a very fortunate Buyer.
