Originally built in 1924 and beautifully updated in keeping with its original character, this home offers four bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths, and a separate cottage. The two-story home sits prominently on tree-lined Kavanaugh Boulevard on a terraced hillside in the Hillcrest neighborhood of Little Rock. Short walks from your new home take you to schools, Knoop Park, Allsopp Park Promenade, and the Hillcrest commercial district with shops, restaurants, and more.
The neo-Colonial brick facade features original wood doors and windows with the added security and energy efficiency of trim- storm windows. Large windows bring natural light into the front rooms of the home, both upstairs and downstairs, and allow views of the well-maintained front lawn and gardens. Hardwood floors are featured in the dining and living rooms and throughout the upstairs bedrooms. Electrical service and plumbing have been upgraded in much of the house and cottage. HVAC systems are programmable, and ductwork and attic insulation were completely reconditioned in 2015 by Energy Innovations, Inc. (home-analysis report available upon request).
The tile-floored kitchen is an attractive blend of modern amenities and vintage charm. The working areas receive natural light from large windows in two directions and displays custom wood cabinetry, many with glass fronts, along with a breakfast counter, a wet bar with built-in wine rack, granite countertops throughout, and a pantry. Appliances are a mix of stainless steel and black porcelain finish, accented by custom back splashes of designer glass.
Between the living and kitchen is a chandelier-lit dining room with large windows and a decorative mirrored-wall. The kitchen opens to a large family room with custom-built bookcases and windows that offer a view of the back yard and raised deck. The convenient laundry room and downstairs bathroom are adjacent to the kitchen hallway.
The spacious master bedroom, positioned apart from the other bedrooms for added privacy, contains an updated master bath with tile floor, glass shower, and in-wall medicine cabinets. A walk-in Elfa closet and a smaller, auxiliary closet are also contained in the master suite.
The remaining three bedrooms offer convenient access to the renovated hall bath, which maintains some original fixtures, a pedestal sink, and charming period wall and floor tile. The hallway features a large storage closet for off-season clothes, and access to a spacious, floored attic. Each bedroom has multiple windows and a closet for each room. Each front bedroom has ceiling fans, and one room has a custom, built-in wood desk, cabinet, and bookcases.
The rear lot features a detached cottage apartment/office building that was completely renovated in 2010. It contains a modern office and supply room/closet, conference room with garden view, a complete kitchen with farmhouse sink, and a full bath with shower and footed, period bathtub. The apartment features have been maintained, so it can be rented for $600-700 per month with utilities included.
A few of the homes other amenities include a gas-lit fireplace with a tile hearth in the living room, a laundry room adjacent to the kitchen with stackable washer and dryer, crown molding in many rooms, ceiling fans, some recessed lighting, a one-car side-entry garage with automatic door opener with remotes, a workshop space in the garage, a privacy-fenced and landscaped terraced backyard, a raised deck and small patio, a storage shed, a Malibu-style hot tub, a sprinkler system, and more.
