History and Southern Charm



A brand new home may hold appeal, but nothing compares to a home that speaks history. This brick beauty was originally crafted in 1937 with classic character and fine attention to detail. Owning this home would result in not only a lovely place to live but your own page in this home’s history book.

This home embraces you from the outside in with its Southern charm. The brick façade is fashioned in that precise yet weathered way that indicates the bricks are from decades past. A matching brick walkway leads you past historic live oaks to the front door. You can almost picture a mother with a pitcher of sweet tea standing in the doorway watching her children play on the lawn.

The spacious interior features an abundance of windows that let sunshine beam through onto the polished hardwood floors. The wood of the floors matches the allure of the brick in the Southern style department. The home has been restored since it was originally built, but the goal has always been to maintain and retain the originally crafted details. 

The cheery kitchen features custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The kitchen leads into formal dining and living rooms, ideal for hosting dinner parties. This five-bedroom and three-and-a-half-bathroom abode is a perfect match for a family that includes children. The youngsters would agree once they see the rather sizable playroom. The outdoor patio is perfect for family barbecues or morning coffee sipping.

The home is situated in the venerable Los Robles neighborhood, just minutes away from popular shopping, dining and entertainment venues, but is secluded enough in a comforting environment.

“The major selling point of this home is definitely its historic charm and its character,” said Realtor Hettie Spooner. “The area it is in and the amenities available in the home make it ideal for a family.”
