5016 South Ellis Avenue

MAJOR PRICE ADJUSTMENT! In 1895 architects Diven & White designed the elegant facade of this Kenwood home for John and Mary Woodhead. They would still recognize the stately southern porch today and while the period details remain, the house has been beautifully updated. Carved balustrades of the main stair echo the past, while a chef's kitchen provides all of the modern conveniences. The living room has a cherry fireplace mantle and coved moldings, built-in mirrors and hardwood floors. Swarovski crystals add to the glow of the formal dining room. An addition to the main level offers a bedroom suite, while upstairs one finds four bedrooms and two full baths. Kitchen features a Viking cooktop w/industrial hood, Seperate freezer and refrigerator, 2 dishwashers. New furnace and A/C in 2016, tankless hot water and an alarm system. Finished basement, 2 car garage and lovely yard. This home awaits the next chapter of its incredible history.
