Affordable Luxury: A Historic Sylvan Park Cottage
By T.j. Anderson
4509 Elkins Avenue, Nashville, TN 37209
For plenty of Nashvillians, a home in Sylvan Park is the ultimate. But it's also all too often an ultimate pipe dream because houses in Sylvan Park aren't cheap. People will pay top dollar to live in a neighborhood that's both perfectly picturesque and seriously charming. Every once in awhile, though, I'll find a super pretty Sylan Park home that falls in the affordable range. This is one of those rare finds.
This two-bedroom, two-bathroom home dates all the way back to 1906 and is almost 1,600 square feet. Smack dab in the middle of Sylvan Park, near to both West End and Charlotte Avenue, this home is a hop, skip, and a jump from so many of Nashville's best shops, restaurants, and activities.
4509 Elkins Avenue is the best of both old and new--with two original fireplaces (one in the living room and one in the master bedroom), nine-foot ceilings, gorgeous hardwoods, and original woodwork around doors and windows, as well as a completely renovated, modern master bathroom and kitchen. During its revamp, the kitchen got top of the line stainless steel appliances, glass door cabinets, a DCS range with a vent hood, a wine refrigerator, and granite countertops. The master bathroom has a huge, designer stone shower.
The house has both an inviting front porch and a screened-in back porch and deck that looks out on the fenced-in back yard. I can't decide whether the awesome back porch is best for solitary reading and relaxing or for hosting a party. How about both?
