About 1644 Cherokee Rd

Welcome to 1644 Cherokee Road! This English Tudor estate home was built in 1927 with the materials, craftsmanship and grandeur of the by-gone era and perfectly located just steps from one of the premier Olmsted Parks. Slate roof with copper accents, solid wood doors, arched doorways, random width hardwood flooring, wood burning fireplace and built-in bookshelves are just a few of the high end finishes. With a formal layout but also cozy areas, brick patios, balconies and covered terraces, this home is an entertaining gem. The grand marble entry welcomes you into the foyer. The living room, with random width hardwood floors, is large enough to hold a grand piano plus several sitting areas and leaded glass doors open to one of the several brick patios. Entertaining around the fireplaceor the bay window area is ideal here. The study/library is tastefully paneled with wood burning fireplace, wet bar, beautiful built-in bookshelves and the leaded-paned doors open to yet another brick terrace. The banquet-sized dining room seats 16 comfortably and is complete with floor to ceiling windows and door leading to the same terrace as the living room. Just a perfect layout for entertaining! The fully equipped kitchen offers all the appliances and layout for the chef in your family. It extends into a sunny breakfast room which could be combined into one wonderful kitchen. The breakfast room also flows to the dining room terrace or out to the backyard and pool area. The in-ground pool with small pool house and terraces offer the perfect spot of entertaining and play time! There are 2 half baths, one located at each end of the first floor, a 2 car attached garage, wonderful china storage cabinets hidden along one wall of the hallway to the kitchen across from an open "gallery" wall perfect to display art. The elevator is nicely appointed and services all 3 floors (basement, 1st and 2nd floor). Not to be missed are the beautiful plantings including well established wisteria. The second floor is accessed by the grand detailed staircase and beautifully lit by 2 story windows and natural light. 9 foot barreled entries on the 2nd floor keep the elegant tradition flowing. The large primary bedroom, with Juliette balcony, offers hardwood flooring and original leaded glass windows throughout. The Primary Bathroom has a jetted tub, walk-in shower, 2 separate sink areas and changing room with built-in closet. 3 closets complete the primary suite. The yellow bedroom (#2) is the sunniest and brightest room in the house! 2 closets, leaded glass windows and another Juliette balcony opening out with views of the expansive front yard.
