Dog walkers and joggers, children wobbling on bikes while their parents chat, potluck dinners and Easter Egg Hunts are all part of this Beloved Fountain City Neighborhood on Barbara Dr. 4504 has historic beginnings and for almost 70 years owners have preserved the classic period charms while adding modern convenience. In 2018 restoration of the original wood windows began, along with a refresh on plaster walls and smooth ceilings plus crown moldings. Oak hardwoods throughout the main floor were refinished. The step-down Living Room is light filled and features a Tennessee Imperial Black Marble fireplace that has been both wood burning and gas. The Dining Room has board and batten with a plate rail and custom stenciling. The main kitchen certainly contains most of the original features,including site built cabinets and flooring, as well as a lovely double basin cast iron sink which was lowered to accommodate a dishwasher and new Black Pearl granite counter tops. All new appliances are GE White Retro Collection. The black iron island is topped with White Carrara Marble and is available to convey. The upstairs bath's art deco tub has been refinished and new life was given to an iconic Singer. Two sizable bedrooms on this main level-both with dual windows and double closets. While only a few of the first light fixtures remain, replacements were carefully chosen from Pottery Barn, Birch Lane and Ballard Designs. A unique "ship-stair'' leads to a spacious attic where new insulation maximizes energy efficiency. Downstairs offers a daylight basement with beadboard ceilings in the "summer kitchen" and family room. A new washer and dryer have been relocated for extra space and a view. Both areas offer 6' wide steel casement windows that look out onto an extensive back patio. The Family Room fireplace has a wood burning insert, set into white washed brick. A large Master Bedroom has french doors onto the patio and both it and the family room have new carpet with memory foam pad. The Summer Kitchen and Master Bath feature new Lifeproof wide vinyl plank flooring. Storage is abundant in this home, there's even a cellar cubby for wine or pantry staples. 4504 would not exist had it not been for returning soldiers and their wives, who took axes in hand to cut thru a wooded area, creating Barbara Drive. Blueprints for the home are dated 1941, but the home was not completed until 1950. While the Dogwoods are now turning Crimson, Spring will soon come back to this yard of perennials in a neighborhood of meticulously tended gardens. Pearl Cottage was once someone's dream...now it can be yours.
