Affectionately nicknamed “The Nordic Retreat” … this home has earned every bit of its well deserved moniker. It’s rare to find a fully remodeled cottage-style home like this one, so close to the Highlands, Edgewater and Sloan’s Lake, that has the innate ability to transport you to the Finnish countryside in a matter of minutes. Situated on just under a quarter acre lot surrounded by towering pine trees, the sunlight plays through the windows in each room, adding warmth to the cool blue and gray tones of the wood flooring and the walls, emphasizing that Scandinavian inspired design concept that, “less is actually more.” Thoughtfully renovated from top to bottom, no expense was spared with a newly replaced main sewer line, addition of central a/c, and smart Nest thermostat. There was, however, a distinct focus on preserving the integrity of some original features, like the hardwood flooring, and oversized windows. The light soaked sunroom happens to be the perfect place to post up with a blanket, a warm cup of coffee (or something stronger) and watch as the world passes by. There are enhanced elements too, like the open living room, with its pitched ceiling and wood burning fireplace, and state-of-the-art chef’s-style kitchen with built-in Beko refrigerator, and breakfast nook. The primary bedroom, tucked away on the Southwest corner of the house, feels like a separate “wing” of the home. With wrap-around windows and tons of space, enough for a reading nook or to showcase that special piece of art, it’s safe to say this isn’t your typical 4 bedroom home. This residence possesses the unique combination of old world charm that comes with a home built in the 1920’s, coupled with the beauty and functionality of a space that has been transformed to fit seamlessly with modern times. The opportunity to live in a place as special as this, just a few minutes drive from the heart of the Highlands, Edgewater, & Sloan’s Lake, doesn’t come up often…or ever, for that matter.
