Perfectly located on a huge Lakeview Avenue lot, this East Hill home invites you in with its stunning curb appeal. A vintage brick walkway leads you to the front of this graceful home, where you are transported into another time of Southern elegance and charm, rarely found in East Hill. As you walk up, you will know that you have arrived. You will visualize you and your family enjoying the massive wrap-around front porch on a cool evening, watching the comings and goings of East Hill. This classic home has served one family well for the last 38 years. The homeowner is more curator; and has painstakingly restored the home over a number of years. Built by Wiley McDavid for his elderly mother in 1909, the stately design begins with a center foyer more than 45 feet long and 10 foot high ceilings throughout. The rooms are almost beyond measure and several have bay windows. If you appreciate quality craftsmanship, you will be delighted with this home. Most rooms have William & Morris wallpaper from England, the finest in quality. The window treatments are also of a quality that one simply cannot get today. On the six non-functioning fireplaces, the mantles were restored with tile or “Rainforest” marble by the same craftsman who did the plaster work. Most of the glass in the windows is the original poured leaded glass & the owner had every window re-caulked. The home has been lovingly restored and maintained with a keen eye toward preserving the home’s treasures. For example, plaster walls were taken down to the “hog hair” base & then carefully rebuilt. (Hog and cattle hair were used to provide coarseness in wall plaster in the late 1800s & early 1900s.) Your family will settle comfortably in this elegant home with its four bedrooms, two baths, dining room, breakfast nook and sunroom. Or, simply relax in the back yard among the gardens & brick walkways as you make this classic East Hill Charmer your own home. upgrades electrical 95, plumbing 97, hvac 03 &roof 16
