Let’s say — hypothetically — that you’re looking to hunker down in the tree-filled, family-geared neighborhood of Highland Park. And let’s also assume that the home of your hypothetical dreams is fully renovated, beautifully designed, and mere blocks from Bryant Street’s charming shops and eateries. It’s spacious and bright, boasting four bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and a contemporary aesthetic with hints of reclaimed materials.
Just one thing, though: This isn’t a drill. We’ve located your dream home, and our sister development company is building it. Non-hypothetically. Set for completion in the summer of 2017 (like, any day now), 5620 Jackson Street emits equal parts functionality and artistry at every turn. This one’s been rehabbed down to the studs, folks. In real estate, that means dramatically overhauled. With an emphasis on dramatic.
The second-floor master, for example, has shifted into a personal luxury suite. It not only offers both sitting and sleeping quarters, but uses a gas-burning, double-sided fireplace to divide them. (We never said this place was conventional.) For a less private rendezvous, head downstairs. The living room’s open layout makes it a solid entertainment space, particularly when paired with an adjacent kitchen. Illuminated naturally by French doors leading to — as Jesse so eloquently describes it — “a badass deck,” the room features subway-tiled backsplash, exposed brick, quartz countertops, and a lovely wet bar-wine fridge combo. Those modern assets are fitting contrasts to the home’s natural bamboo flooring … which you’ll find everywhere, excluding the third floor. But that floor has perks of its own — like a separately controlled thermostat. Dually zoned HVAC for the win.
