663 Oakland Avenue
Nestled equidistant to Piedmont Ave and the Rose Garden, this iconic Georgian colonial home is a feast for the eyes. Built in 1908, the main house measures approximately 2560 square feet, including four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. At the rear of the property sits a permitted 456 square foot studio with large porch.
In the main house you arrive in a sumptuous entry gleaming with original wood detail, from wainscoting to the grand staircase. Warm and inviting public rooms are located through pocket doors to the left. The living room and large formal dining room have wonderfully high ceilings and picture rails. The living room fireplace has been converted to a modern gas appliance, lending cozy atmosphere to gatherings of all sizes.
Two full bathrooms are found on the main level, one tucked near the kitchen at the core of the home, sleekly appointed in white tile. The second bathroom was recently remodeled and sits conveniently at the rear of the home at the utility area, easily accessed by guests staying in the studio.
There is no lack of storage space in the large kitchen and adjacent utility room. The kitchen boasts crisp quartz counters and stainless appliances. Step from there out to the broad covered back porch and for a cocktail or nap al fresco.
Upstairs are three sprawling bedrooms, a delightful den with decorative fireplace, and a third full bathroom. Future plans could include expansion on this level to create a private master suite with bath.
A massive unfinished attic with broad stairway could similarly be creatively developed into a suite, office, or play/lounge space.
Behind the home sits an airy and open 456 square foot studio, looking out across the backyard with its own broad porch. Newly installed flooring and HVAC make this a beautiful addition of space to the grounds.
The terraced backyard is beautifully hardscaped and softened with exotic plantings. Sunny and private, it has been an integral space in hosting celebrations large and small.
Who needs a car? Tandem off-street parking on the side driveway completes this oasis.
Just blocks to Piedmont Avenue and Grand Avenue. A short hop to bus connections and Highway 580. This is a commuter's dream with a walk-factor for relaxed weekends spent enjoying local haunts and activities.
