While this article is from 2018, featuring two homes for sale at the time, it also gives an inside look at two beautiful Birmingham homes in Cherokee Bend and Redmont that are a feast for the eyes!

Two of Birmingham’s favorite neighborhoods, Cherokee Bend and Redmont, are filled with beautiful homes. Today, we’re taking a peek inside a home in each neighborhood — a family home in Cherokee Bend and an English Tudor in Redmont, and each of the homes has something unique to offer.

English Tudor in Redmont

One home we love is found in Birmingham’s Redmont neighborhood. “Redmont is a historic neighborhood developed between 1911 and 1935 that extends along the crest of Red Mountain just outside of Mountain Brook,” Ray & Poynor Realtor Julie Harris explains. “In addition to its gorgeous estate homes, Redmont is in a prime location just minutes to downtown, UAB, English Village, great restaurants and fabulous shopping! Stroll up Stratford Circle for a fabulous view of the city and gorgeous sunsets.”

The home we’re eying, located on Argyle Road, is a 1920s English Tudor notable for its classic details, including stone fireplaces, hardwood floors, high ceilings and a combination of formal and casual living spaces. “Extensive renovations have preserved the historic character of the home while providing modern day conveniences,” Julie shares.

The property features a main house, which boasts four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms, as well as a guest cottage with two bedrooms and one-and-a-half bathrooms and a garden house. The main house is nothing short of spectacular, and fine features abound. “It’s jaw-dropping, and I feel the same way at every turn of the corner,” Julie says of the home. “I don’t want to leave!”

There is an easy flow throughout the space. The main floor offers abundant living space, with three living areas, plus a beverage room and snack bar and large kitchen. “Everything is stunning, but the kitchen is a favorite and features Calacatta marble, open shelving and reclaimed wood beams,” Julie tells us. “The vintage barn wood ceiling paired with custom cabinetry provides a nice design touch for this additional entertaining space,” Julie says about the beverage and snack bar. “The connection to the terrace affords convenience for serving outdoors.”

Family Home in Cherokee Bend

“Cherokee Bend is a close-in, family-oriented neighborhood with an award-winning elementary school and Mountain Brook Junior High and High School,” says Julie. “Here, you will find beautiful rolling hills, walking trails, large homes, sidewalks and a great sense of community.” Within this neighborhood, stately homes line the streets and house families who take advantage of everything Cherokee Bend has to offer. One home located on Harpers Ferry Road has caught our eye and boasts traditional design and plenty of space with its four bedrooms and four bathrooms.

The foyer welcomes you to the home and leads to the central living space, and the family room is one of the most well-used spots in the home. “I love the elegant foyer and the great room, which leads to a beautiful covered deck overlooking the backyard. It is perfect for entertaining,” Julie says. “The family room has a cozy fireplace and floor-length windows.” You can also access the deck from the kitchen, a gorgeous space that is outfitted with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and tile backsplash.

Julie identifies the master bathroom as the most beautiful room in the home. “It has been beautifully redone with marble countertops, marble tile, a top-of-the-line air-jet tub and a gorgeous shower with spray jets, rain and handheld showerheads.” The master bedroom, with large windows, wood floors and a walk-in closet, is equally as spectacular.

On the lower level, a playroom/den offers additional living space and could act as a fifth bedroom. It is spacious and comfortable, plus there is a full bathroom with a large shower. French doors lead to the lower-level screened-in porch, which overlooks the large, flat backyard.
