Inspired by the 1999 Southern Living article titled Simple Symmetry, a complete rebuild and expansion thoroughly transformed what once was a 1950s rural cottage into the tranquil setting you see today. The project was implemented by the guiding hand of a prominent Florida interior designer, and the intentional approach shines throughout the home's new floor plan, welcoming facade, window openings, and architectural details. Step in off the open-beamed covered porch into the tiled entry, through one of the home's 4 sets of French doors. An open floor plan awaits, with multiple options for living, sunset gazing, deer watching, dining, and entertaining. The white kitchen is tiled to the entryway, with the tile also connecting to the French doors to the west for several points of outdoor entertaining, grilling, and seating. The master suite boasts a fireplace and sitting area; a spa-themed bath with skylight, water closet, jetted soaker tub, and spacious tiled shower; a large walk-in closet complete with built-in shelving, natural lighting, and laundry area, as well as picture windows opening to the wooded privacy that abounds around the home. Separated by a hall and the laundry area, the home's additional bedrooms welcome their guests into their own privacy and onto the expansive screened porch with vaulted ceiling and fan. The walkout finished basement is ready for movie and game night, with custom cabinetry housing the powered projector screen, as well as a wet bar with paneled under-counter refrigerator and ice maker, microwave, and built-in wine rack. Outside, a botanical escape envelopes the home and grounds, from the gentle sloping ravine to the west, to the massive rear Trex deck seemingly pulled from the pages of an outdoor living magazine. For grounds maintenance, a darling tractor shed features a covered porch, fitting to double as a play house for kids or adults. Nestled in the rolling hills between Browning Road and the Hornet's Nest, this home - and hot tub - is ready to welcome you and yours today. The light always shines where there is love; this home is always shining. Don't let the sun set on this rare, northside opportunity.
