A Forever Home on Rockridge’s Finest Block
It’s autumn on Lawton Ave... Dramatic sunsets light your way as you travel to dinner on College Ave...Halloween decorations providing seasonal cheer...leaves rustling at your feet. At precisely the prettiest part of the block, you arrive at 5811 Lawton, a classic brown shingle 1911 Craftsman that appears modest from the curb, but boasts a beautiful and roomy two-story addition in the back (designed by architect Kathy Rogers, and built in 2002 by Lawrence Construction).
Brand new wide-plank oak flooring graces the first floor and sets the stage for more surprises to come (2018). Round the corner from the generous formal living room and find a modern branching chandelier and geometric Heath tile on the kitchen backsplash. An intimate coffee and wine bar separates the formal dining room from the kitchen.
A wide central hallway offers sightlines out to the south-facing rear deck and garden beyond, while a glass door floods the back family room with natural light. The adjacent master bedroom offers gracious proportions and a private view of the deck through French doors, as well as a large walk-in closet.
A light-filled staircase leads to the 2002 second story addition which features side-by-side sunlit bedrooms and a hall bathroom, and additional closets and access to the attic. The western bedroom boasts a second sunny deck with views of verdant gardens and the hills of Upper Rockridge.
