Property Details for 5589 Lawton Ave


This property is no longer available to rent or buy. This description is from June 17, 2016
Originally built in 1914, the home that now occupies this trendy locale was rebuilt just 10 years ago, with an emphasis on craftsmanship, sustainability, and livability. By virtue of the owners professional expertise in visual arts, it conveys a stylized earthy-elegant aesthetic. Its serene indoor-outdoor environment offers the mecca of Rockridge close by.Beyond the faade, the home embodies a genre of its own, blending antique elements, custom woodwork, innovative design and built-in components. 3 floors of comfortable splendor include an open floor-plan main level whose back wall opens... nearly entirely to a veranda. It overlooks and connects to a meticulously composed garden, showcasing groupings of roses, hydrangeas, a graceful magnolia, and level lawn, all outlined by hornbeam trees that create a privacy screen, and within the garden a detached cottage contains a full bath.A timeless aesthetic juxtaposes with contemporary advantages. All custom crafted, casement windows and French doors, cabinetry, Douglas Fir floors, walls, doors and ceilings abounding with beams were specially stained and treated to age through a natural progression. While elements take on a time-honored tone, they incorporate modern qualities: windows and doors are all double paned, and radiant heat lies beneath floors. The kitchen orbits a birch island topped with brushed stainless that cleverly conceals refrigerator and freezer drawers amid cabinetry.The 2nd floor and its spacious bedrooms benefit from vaulted ceilings. Both grant garden outlooks, the master from a balcony that also offers wide-ranging views of treed hillscapes. Intermixing new fixtures with a vintage freestanding tub, the bath incorporates a natural-stone-clad shower, into which the wood-beamed ceiling carries, to dramatic effect.The lower level, with poured concrete flooring, presents an industrial-chic area for work or play and capacity for storage in its generously proportioned closets.
