Front Elevation

Southern Charm with Coastal Modernity

Trying to buy just the right home Intown is a challenge. Downright frustrating in many cases. Those reports of over a "thousand people a month" moving Intown are true, and housing inventory is at an all-time low. Many buyers are left with the feeling they will have to snap up almost anything that pops up or be left behind. If you've had the discipline to wait for the ideal home to appear, your patience may be rewarded here.

The address is 259 Sisson Avenue
The price is $850,000.

Sophisticated Southern charm, with just a hint of colorful Coastal modernity. Geometric angles that play streamlined and symmetric, without forgetting to be a little playful. A western exposure on a quiet street in that part of Kirkwood that doesn’t know whether it’s in Oakhurst or Lake Claire, but is more-than happy to bring a bottle of wine to a party in either. Walking distance to Saturday brunches at Sun In My Belly, followed by a romp in the park.

A lot of personality and polish went into making 259 Sisson Avenue what it is. Not that knock-out-a-wall-to-open-it-up effort; the kind you hire an architect for. The nearly new 3000+ square-foot result is ready for its 6-page spread in a magazine that ends in Living.

Downstairs, the classic Southern front porch leads into the warm-wood and gem-tone common area, where gravity will inevitably draw guests toward a bright kitchen that has true Food Network angles. Flanking, a pair of dining areas that can host five-course affairs, or Thursday-morning bagels, respectively. A fireplace-equipped living room with a just so layout; an enclosed sunroom overlooking the “right-sized” backyard; a ready-to- go home office space to casually host Zoom meetings to your heart’s content.

Upstairs, a bit more intimate. Four bedrooms with closet space to spare. Two boast en suites, but the award goes to the primary bath, with a mile-deep garden tub you’re gonna spend way too much time in. Little touches, too — don’t you love it when the laundry room is on the same floor as the bedrooms?

259 Sisson Avenue is unique among its competitors. You could not get a better design for your long-term use. The friendly price is well under what you'd pay for brand-new construction, similar square footage within walking distance to Marta and both Oakhurst and Kirkwood Village shops and restaurants. If you're a ready-to-act buyer, get to this home right away. Because prices are sure to climb this spring and securing a home of this caliber, at this price, may soon be an impossible task.
