Don’t Be Koi: Great Home In One of the City’s Hottest Hoods — Bluffview, Baby, Bluffview

Share News:

This is one of those really great homes that is very much like a fine young wine. Not too old, not too young and sassy, but just right. Over the seven year itch, all the kinkys have been worked out. Blue chip real estate. 4501 Cherokee Trail was built in 1999 in the highly coveted Bluffview — Bluffview properties didn’t even shed two cents of value post Lehman Brothers in 2008 –this home was constructed by Chuck Shaw for the same family now selling. In other words, custom build for a one-owner home. If course, what that means is that no expense was spared and the place is loaded. What I like, besides the location: unbelieveable master suite is downstairs with master bath with heated floors.  (Sorry, I have this thing: if the home is over $2 million it must have heated floors in the master. If it does not, lower the dang price!) You have about 6000 square feet — I mean really, who needs more — and the necessary four bedrooms, four baths, three half baths, study, media room and pool.Wine cellar and tasting room perhaps — check — in the cellar. An elevator for when you’ve imbibed too much takes you riht up to your beddy-bye, no need to risk a DWI.  The outdoor living area could practically shelter another family: koi pond,  pool, outdoor kitchen,  fire pit and fireplace.  Oh they have even managed to remove the mosquitos with a high-intensity natural mosquito mister. This home could not be reproduced at this price: $3,795,000.

And you are in such luck. This home is on tour Sunday August 28 from 1 to 3 pm. Meet you in the wine cellar…

    LOVE Bluffview! We lived there for 10 plus years before the need for public school necessitated a move to Highland Park. Our lot was over an acre and our backyard was awesome! We truly felt like we lived in the country–wild rabbits and chickens roamed the backyards nestled together (no alleys).

    Do they really expect to get a Buyer on an open house? Or is this just an agent looking for buyers in general? Just curious….
