A grand home in Allendale awaits a family seeking privacy, room to stretch out and modern conveniences amid character from the 1940s.
The remodeled home is located off Woodley Road at the end of an attractive driveway. The two-story design includes four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms within more than 4,400 square feet of living space.
The shiny hardwood floors, beautiful stairs, built-ins, and numerous windows combine to create an appealing atmosphere for family life.
“It is an 81-year-old home that has only had two owners,” Realtor Garrett Smith said. “The home has been professionally remodeled.”
An address in the Capital City’s Allendale neighborhood puts residents close to both Baptist South and Jackson hospitals, Montgomery Country Club, public and private schools, Huntingdon College, and Alabama State University. Downtown jobs also are within 10 minutes.
The neighborhood’s spacious homes, wide streets, and large yards have attracted families for several decades. The ages of homes range from 1920 to the mid to late 1990s, Smith said, adding that design styles include traditional ranch, colonial, contemporary, mid-century modern, craftsman, and Greek revival.
“Allendale is a family-friendly neighborhood,” Smith said. “It has easy access to downtown and the interstate and is an established neighborhood with timeless homes.”
The home at 2188 Woodley Road is for sale for $449,900.
“The lot is large and has a detached two-car garage with plenty of storage and an apartment above,” Smith said. “Inside, there is a large open kitchen with commercial grade appliances, all the bathrooms are updated and there is plenty of open room to entertain. It is a large family home, priced accordingly with the ability to produce income from the apartment or have a place for an elderly relative.”
The home includes a perfect setup for entertaining. A wall of windows in the dining room, a butler’s pantry, and wet bar with a standalone ice maker are an ideal backdrop for any party.
The cook will love the remodeled kitchen which includes a commercial gas range, abundant cabinet storage, stainless steel double ovens and a commercial refrigerator. A work island and eat-in kitchen also are available for snacks and breakfast.
The living room fireplace and screened-in porch and patio are ideal for the big game, family homework time or other gatherings.
Outside the home, the apartment above the garage has an efficiency kitchen and bathroom with a shower. The large backyard includes mature trees.
