Many Memphians know the Chickasaw Gardens area due to its desirable, historic landscapes and plenty of Memphis style. “Located in the heart of East Memphis, residents enjoy neighborhood parades, walks to the Pink Palace Museum and Planetarium, Saturday University of Memphis football games at the Liberty Bowl Stadium or dinner in Overton Square,” shares realtor Joshua Spotts with Crye-Leike, Realtors. A spacious, open property sits at 19 Cherokee Drive, with architectural details, style and updates to ensure luxurious living. “This property is a one-of-a kind find,” Josh says. “You can’t beat the neighborhood culture that Chickasaw Gardens offers, and the location is ideal for any family.”
Let’s take a closer look at what all this property has to offer.
When stepping into this expansive home, you will find three full bedrooms along with two full baths and a half bath. “This home is spacious with French architectural details, displaying a luxurious feel and homey nature,” Josh tells us. Beyond the home’s foyer, you will find a traditional floor plan with a large living room, kitchen, screened porch and office. “The living room will be the most well-used room in this home,” according to Josh. “With its light, airy feel, it is a great space year-round.” With large windows, hardwood floors, custom molding and a central location, it is no surprise this room is a favorite for everyone. The standout feature in the space is the imported mantle surrounding the fireplace.
The kitchen is quaint but has everything you need, including a large refrigerator, wine rack and six-burner stove. The kitchen and living room open to a sunroom, which overlooks the home’s courtyard. The airy feel continues in the dining room, which is ideal for entertaining and hosting any occasion. The easy flow of the floor plan allows you to move around easily within the home and take advantage of all it has to offer!
Set on the second story, the master bedroom, complete with a sitting area, is sizable. The master bathroom is an oasis with double sinks, a whirlpool tub and shower. The two additional upstairs bedrooms are filled with natural light, thanks to well-appointed windows, and all of the home’s bedrooms feature beautiful hardwood floors.
The guest cottage in the backyard is a lovely surprise. “This space is perfect for hosting guests or converting into an office space. It’s the perfect weekend getaway,” Josh shares. This, coupled with the charming backyard, offers additional space to live and entertain. “The back of the house holds its original structural integrity with floor-to-ceiling windows that are a great way to keep the party alive both inside and outside,” Josh adds.
