About 1478 Cherokee Rd

Welcome to this historic treasure, designed by E.T Hutchings, in the heart of the Cherokee Triangle overlooking Cherokee Park. This extremely convenient location will allow you to enjoy the park year round from snow sledding in the winter to spring and summer concerts. Both the interior and exterior encompass the quintessential unique charm of homes from the 1900s yet features many modern updates including a soffit and gutter system that was rebuilt with new copper gutters(2021) and new HVAC on all three floors of the main house and new ductwork on the first and second. Upon entrance into the grand foyer you will immediately notice the stunning inlay hardwood floors throughout the sun-filled living room and formal dining room that connects to the luxurious custom gourmet kitchen. This fullgut renovation included the combining of several rooms to create a new larger space that centers around a bold island with Corian Quartz countertops making it perfect for entertaining. The floor to ceiling cabinets, GE monogram stainless steel appliances and wetbar with nugget ice maker and beverage cooler are exquisite. There has also been a renovation of the rear service hallway to showcase Scalamandre wallcoverings. French doors lead to the sunroom ideal for taking in the sunrise and morning coffee. The second floor hardwood floors have been restored, along with new flooring to match in the northeast bedroom. Here there are an astounding 4 bedrooms (2 with balcony access), an office, 3 full baths and 1 half bath. Heading to the third floor you will find a kitchenette, full bath and 2 additional bedrooms. The unfinished basement with laundry and half bath allows for tons of storage along with access to the attached 1 car garage. Walkways from both the covered front and side porch lead to the fenced yard and the fully remodeled carriage house that was designed by Douglas R. Schmitt. First floor features an open floor plan complete with a family room, dining area and kitchen. Down the hall is a laundry room with a half bath. Upstairs is a spacious sitting area, bedroom with walk-in closet and a full bath. The existing original windows were refurbished and new windows with antique wavy glass were built to match by a historic window craftsman. The carriage house has an additional 1,106 sq ft that is currently rented for $1,250/month. The gas & electric are metered separately. A full list of notable improvements can be found under documents.
