As Birmingham continues to grow, so do the surrounding areas. Vestavia Hills, a community that offers ideal living, has risen in popularity — and for good reason! At the end of a street in one of the community’s many charming neighborhoods, sits a house that embodies Vestavia Hills living at its finest. “The main benefit of this home is the community, the school system and the amazing property,” Ray & Poynor Properties Realtor Jane Huston Crommelin shares. The 9,000-square-foot home offers six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and two half baths — plus a floorplan with comfortable rooms and easy flow. Take a look inside and get a glimpse of elegant, comfortable living in a welcoming community.
“The immediate reaction upon walking into the home is that you are in an elegant, comfortable space,” Jane Huston explains. The English-style brick home boasts superior construction with an attention to detail that is evident throughout. An arched entryway opens to the home’s grand two-story foyer, which sets the tone for the remainder of the property. On either side of the foyer, you will find the living room, study, spacious dining room and large den. When asked to pick a favorite space in the home, Jane Huston struggles, saying, “To try to pick the most loved space in the home would be a challenge. There is a gorgeous library with a fireplace to relax in, or a den with a fireplace to watch television with the family. For the chef in the family, you have a large kitchen with a six-burner Viking cooktop with a large island and triple copper farm sink, and the kitchen is large and opens to the keeping room.”
The study is a grand space, with wood-covered walls, coffered ceilings and a fireplace. All of the luxurious design elements evoke a sense of warmth that is welcomed by those using the room to read or work. The den is a comfortable space designed for more laid-back gatherings, as it opens to a covered patio and pool. And, as is true in most homes, the kitchen is at the heart of the design. There is more than enough room to cook, eat and entertain, thanks to a thoughtful layout featuring an eat-in island and ample counter space. Rich detailing enhances the elegance of the kitchen, and its open layout makes it easy to use for the whole family.
Also on the first floor, the master suite features an oversized bathroom with heated floors, custom closets and a dressing room with large closet. “The master suite features multiple closets, with two walk-in organizer closets for him and one large walk-in organizer closet/dressing room with chandelier for her,” Jane Huston shares. “The master bath has granite countertops, custom cabinetry, a tile shower and heated travertine tile flooring.”
The master bedroom is one of six bedrooms in the home. On the second floor, you’ll find four additional bedrooms plus four bathrooms, a loft/study area and a workout room/playroom. There is also an in-law suite with bathroom and kitchenette, ideal for visitors who would like a touch of added privacy.
On the home’s lower level, a media room and game room can be found with a projector, nine-foot screen and surround sound.
Outside, the one-acre property features lush landscaping and a backyard that is as impressive as the rest of the home. A covered patio opens to a gorgeous pool framed by thoughtful greenery. Privacy abounds in this peaceful setting.
