Key Details


A gracious neoclassical beauty in charming Pemberton. This elegant home is sited on one of the most desirable locations in the neighborhood, a sought-after corner lot on a street lined with exquisite period homes and luxurious modern residences all shaded by decades-old trees. The exclusive enclave is one of the oldest in town, within walking distance of Pease Park and just minutes from downtown.

Built in 1936, the white brick facade sets a stately tone with a two-story front porch held up by Corinthian columns. The broad front lawn is iron-fenced and dappled with light and shade. The lush lot...

includes a heritage 40-foot Magnolia gifted to one of the original owners by a grateful student in the 1940s.

A spacious family home with the utmost attention to detail, artfully blending old and new. The original living and dining rooms greet you at the entry, flanking a sweeping staircase that rises to a catwalk on the second floor. These traditional spaces flow into the new vaulted kitchen, breakfast room and family room.

The Calcutta-marble-clad kitchen is an elegant and functional heart of the home and features plenty of space for the gourmet cook to experiment while friends and family gather in the family room nearby. This space opens to a shady patio that features a fireplace to warm up a chilly night.

Entertaining options may include a wine-tasting event with bottles pulled from the temperature-controlled wine cellar that abuts a cozy study. Guests can take their glasses out to a second pergola-covered patio and enjoy an alfresco meal from the summer kitchen.

At the top of the staircase lies a charming sitting area flanked with bookcases to create a cozy reading nook. Three bedrooms on the original side of the house look out over treetop views and the lawn below. A junior suite features an en suite bath, walk-in closet, and access to a petite balcony. Down the hall, the primary suite enjoys a Juliet balcony, large bath, and three walk-in closets. Plans for a cosmetic refresh of the suite have been drawn up and will be provided to the buyer if desired.

Additional notable features of the home include warm oak floors, original fireplace in formal living room, Calcutta gold marble in kitchen, butler’s pantry with beverage cooler connecting the kitchen and dining room, and temperature-controlled wine cellar that can hold 200 bottles and includes a sink and additional storage. The junior suite has a bay window with seat, en suite bath and walk-in closet, junior balcony, primary suite features a Juliette balcony and three closets, and a catwalk and reading nook overlooks the kitchen and family room. The laundry chute upstairs drops to main-floor laundry, electric shades on clerestory windows in kitchen, fireplace on rear patio, summer kitchen on side patio, and the mirrored gym with television and beverage cooler can be reverted to a two-car garage if desired.
