This beautiful historic home is nestled in prominent Central Gardens with all the charm of a historic home and all the upgrades of a new home. 1731 Peabody is located on a rare large corner lot with access to the property from Lemaster. The beautiful wood gates on Lemaster glide open to a large parking area. The welcoming spacious front lawn and inviting porch make for great entertaining. The front of the house is also accessible by a long driveway with the original Porte-Cochere. Current owners love spending time on the porch enjoying the fresh air. As you enter the house beautiful hardwood floors, smooth ceilings, and some of the original crown moldings are featured.
The main house presents 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths plus an office. The total living area of the main house is +/- 3,566 SF based on the most recent appraisal. The first floor features a large living room, welcoming foyer, dining room (currently being used as a Billiard room) with a half bathroom, a well-designed upgraded kitchen with a spacious pantry, and a large den area. The current downstairs layout is designed to accompany AirBnB guests, making for an entertainment lounge area. They have loved the opportunity to invite guests from around the world and share a cup of coffee discussing life, travels, and the pursuit of happiness.
The kitchen features a unique mother of pearl backsplash. The seller was drawn to the pattern as it reflected the tumbling block pattern often seen in quilting. The huge island was intentionally built to have a large walkway to allow for easy flow during large gatherings. The center island is made of natural quartzite with aqua tones. This table acts as a place of gathering for the current owners to entertain when they have guests in town. The Kitchen appliances make for a dream Chef Kitchen: a beverage fridge, a “sonic-like” ice maker, Kitchen Aid double ovens, Wolf stovetop, Venti hood, Jenn Air Fridge, and a dishwasher. The reverse osmosis filter provides ultra-clean drinking water and is connected to the Scotsman icemaker and the Jenn air refrigerator.
The small beverage fridge allows for two different temperatures allowing for a variety of refreshments. The Island has cabinets on both sides making for generous storage. The Sellers' favorite feature is the low simmer mode for the stovetop, a “must-have” if you ask her. Additionally, she designed a pop-up feature for a Kitchen-aid to be easily stored and used for her baking adventures. To accompany her passion for baking, an entire cabinet is dedicated towards baking sheets. The large windows in the Kitchen gazing into the backyard allow for an abundance of natural sunlight.
The second floor consists of a spacious primary bedroom en-suite, a second bedroom with an attached bathroom, a third bedroom, an office, and a hallway full bathroom. The primary bedroom features a large spacious closet made for two, a spacious seating area, and a large primary bathroom with the original bathtub, double head showers, and double vanity.
As you leave the back door by the Kitchen, you enter a gated seating area with a beautiful yard and a side porch perfect for outdoor company or enjoying a relaxing day. The pool was recently resurfaced, and the sellers added an original Gaudi tile at the head of the pool to commemorate their vacation to Spain. The large Mermen statues spout water into the pool making for a fun atmosphere to enjoy. The exterior is installed with a 10-zone irrigation system that waters the green spaces. The Outdoor lighting creates a beautiful ambiance to enjoy the Memphis summer nights listening to the sounds of nature.
The renovated pool house includes a kitchen area, living room area with a half bathroom on the first floor. The picturesque spiral staircase leads to a beautiful bedroom attached with its own full bathroom.
