Custom built home in the heart of Candler Park designed and built by the current owners in 2010. Features three distinct levels, spacious, low maintenance lot with fully fenced back yard and large two story external garage ready to become the perfect workshop, casita or income producer. Home is shielded from the street by historic tree and natural vegetation. Main level is open and resplendent with natural light. Solid oak hardwoods gleam in the sunlight throughout the main level. Front portion features a beautiful internal sun porch with windows on three sides. Central section is open to the peaked ceiling and offers a very free, relaxing space to reflect and socialize. Gas log remote control fireplace with handpainted imported tiles from New Zealand completes the space. Library has pocket doors for privacy or use as a bedroom. Homeowner has two complete window assemblies ready for installation by the new homeowner in the library if desired. Library has beautiful coffered ceiling constructed from natural pine. In back part of the main level are the modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances, plenty of granite counter space, lots of cabinets and breakfast bar featuring double sided glass door cabinets for unique and artful look. Just off the kitchen is the main level guest bedroom and full bath. Main level opens onto rear lower balcony and access to fenced in private backyard. Upper level is artistic paradise. Entire second level flows together into one serpentine space featuring a very large master bedroom with a Texas sized walk in closet and a beautiful full bath. Master opens onto the upstairs private outdoor balcony. Central part of level is open to the main floor and features cleverly designed curtains for privacy and beautiful pine accents. Continue towards the front of the house through the upstairs office and into the front loft. Fully finished terrace level is accessible from the driveway or kitchen area. Perfect recreation space. Floor finished with acid etched clear polyurethane. Handcrafted hardwood bar is nearly 12 feet long well equipped for hosting. Driveway side of the terrace level is finished with brick from original property that stood on this lot for decades. Second remote control gas log fireplace sits across from bar with tons of room for toys and furnishings. If you can imagine it you can probably do it here. Terrace level has a full bath with shower as well as laundry and mechanical areas. Backyard is fully fenced and perfect for kids and pets. Small section of lawn can be mown in 10 minutes. Large paved driveway leads to two story two car garage. Garage surrounded by paving stones for beautiful look and comfortable level footing. Building behind house is hidden gem.

It is currently laid out as a garage with workspace and upstairs rec area, but with some imagination and probably not that much money could easily become living space.

Take a look at local rental rates or AirBnB listings and you will be surprised at the income potential sitting in this backyard.
