Please schedule showings through Showi This amazing home was rehabbed in 2006 by the previous owners and updated again by one of the country's leading experts (Professor) on historic preservation from 2016 to 2019 using Architectural Salvage to find missing pieces of craftsmanship. Updates include one new HVAC (1) system, plumbing, electric, the two and half bathrooms, a modern kitchen, and energy efficiencies were added as well.

The ground floor living areas are a craftsman's dream with beautiful refinished inlaid floors throughout. The foyer, living room, and dining room have gorgeous parquet floors. This floor has three amazing grand fireplaces with uniquely beautiful historical details. The fireplace in the video/dining room has a working gas hearth. The updated kitchen includes new tile flooring with stainless steel GE profile appliances and craft made cabinets windows on two sides. The former "mud room" has been renovated with shelving added and with the addition of an armoire is the 4th bedroom. It could be a great place for a music room! This room also has the entrance to the cellar.

The entire front of the house has been painted with chromatic colors. The freshly painted front of the home's massive, covered porch with swing is perfect for people watching while enjoying the bubbling fountain in your front yard.
The second floor offers three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The master bedroom has natural light coming in from the North and South sides of the room with another cast iron fireplace for cozy comfort. The master bath has marble flooring, double sinks, a Jacuzzi tub, and a separate stand-up glass enclosed shower. The house also provides an area just off the master bedroom that could be a porch on the North side that could be finished or enclosed in glass to extend the square footage of the bedroom plus a small closet. .The second bedroom is exceptionally large, it has floor to ceiling custom shelves perfect for your library, and a craftsman fireplace. The third bedroom has been used as an office in the past but as the third bedroom offers a contemporary wooden barn door closet for lots of storage.
On the third floor, the owner has added the 5th bedroom with an entire additional adjacent room with closets tastefully done with historic details.

Enjoy the beautiful outdoors in your privately fenced back yard; where there is room enough for badminton, croquet, volleyball or simply entertaining.

Although built in 1900, the home offers energy efficiencies: the metal roof was coated a thick substance called "umbrella" white to deflect the sun and reduce energy costs along with lots of large trees in the front. Another extra featured is that with high ceilings, central air on the first floor is unneeded with fans placed in four of the first-floor rooms, three in the second-floor rooms and one on the third floor.

Call the Highlands "weird", independent, fun, nutty, historic, and one-of-a kind neighborhood with the greatest variety of restaurants, places of worship, diversity, tolerance, live music, walkability, bike-ability and dog walker paradise. It's just a short commute time to downtown work or museums and colleges. Whether it is Fodor's or USA Today, the Highlands is ranked as one of the best urban neighborhoods in the nation right up there with Greenwich Village in New York or Haight Asbury in San Francisco with the most painted ladies and ranking fourth behind San Francisco, New Orleans, and Miami Beach. But you don't have to pay millions of dollars to live in this historic Victorian of craftsmanship, pride, and value. Make 1405 Highland Ave your home and enjoy the Highland lifestyle.
