You have undoubtedly seen the striking butterfly logo that represents the Inman Park Neighborhood Association but what you may not have noticed is that the wings depict opposing faces; one looking to the beauty of the past & one looking forward to fresh possibilities. Just as the butterfly has always been the quintessential symbol of beautiful transformation, 1131 Austin Avenue epitomizes the magic of honoring the past while embracing the future. Originally constructed in 1898, this spectacular Victorian is one of the best examples of the iconic grande dames that still distinguish this highly sought-after neighborhood. From the wide, tree-lined street, her captivating allure beckons you through a double gate, across a gorgeous flat, fenced yard, & onto a huge wrap-around porch cloaked in beautiful Brazilian Cumaru. While it is tempting to linger here, envisioning enjoying a morning cup of coffee or an evening cocktail, her spell entices you into the impressive foyer which imparts a profound sense of arrival; introducing just some of the incredible architectural details that make this stately home so special, one of seven fireplaces, handsome judge’s paneling & original picture molding while offering compelling glimpses into the gorgeous rooms that lay beyond. The original vestibule features a charming window seat & makes for the perfect home office or reading nook while the large living room, separated from the entry by an original pocket door, serves as a comfortable second living space with a fireplace focal point. Morning light floods into the incredible dining room thanks to a quintet of windows that wrap the eastern side of the room while a third fireplace adds a feeling of intimacy to this formidable space. A dedicated butler’s pantry provides a seamless passage to the back of the house where modern conveniences & functionality answer the needs of today’s busy families. The large, renovated white kitchen is punctuated with commercial-grade stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, & center island & opens into a spacious breakfast area & family room beyond. A spectacular wall of windows blurs the line between inside & out & allows for uncompromised views of the incredible backyard with a luscious lawn that sweeps back to a pergola & outdoor grilling area complete with stone fire pit. The living space expands through two sets of double French doors onto an enviable vaulted screened porch which overlooks an idyllic recirculating stone pond in the front yard as well as a custom treehouse in the back. A separate den off the family room features the fourth main floor fireplace & a wall of custom built-ins providing great storage just where you need it. Upstairs, the oversized primary suite features the fifth fireplace as well as a large ensuite which was thoughtfully renovated by the current owners, blending flawlessly with the more historic spaces of the home. Brass fixtures & black & white mosaic tile accent the spa-like bathroom, featuring dual custom wood vanities, clawfoot tub, separate shower, & large, bright walk-in custom closet. Two of the three ample secondary bedrooms also feature original fireplaces while two of the rooms share access to a private deck. Two secondary bathrooms, one with a walk-in shower & one with a tub, complete the second floor. Beyond the exquisite aesthetic, the current owners have taken great care to sustain the structure & systems including reinforcing the front deck, replacing the electrical panel, installing a tankless water heater, replacing HVAC systems & repairing the archetypal fireplaces to name a few. A recent inspection of the Buckingham slate roof reflects that it should persist for another fifty years. If all of this weren't enough, 1131 Austin Ave puts you within blocks of some of the city's most celebrated restaurant & retail districts including Inman Park Village, Krog Street Market & Little 5 Points as well as the multitude of parks & trails that pervade the area.
