Cute Vickery Place Craftsman Has a Contemporary Side

5544 Goodwin Front

While I adore Craftsman homes from the outside, there’s only so much wood and Mission-style furniture that I can take. Sure, the Arts & Crafts homes of Vickery Place are as iconic as you can get in this style, but for interiors, I definitely lean more toward a contemporary aesthetic.

Thankfully, so does our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. It’s a new listing from David Griffin & Company agent Bart Thrasher, and it’s sure to please your Craftsman-turned-contemporary design style thanks to its effortless combination of clean lines, natural materials, and open spaces.

This cottage at 5544 Goodwin Ave. in Vickery Place is a wonderful take on warm, transitional living. Plus, there are tons of upgrades throughout this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath, 2,210-square-foot home. Thrasher is marketing this slice of paradise in Lower Greenville — within walking distance of award-winning restaurants such as The Grape — for $619,000. Thrasher, who has a background in woodworking and interior remodeling, notes the hard work that went into this fresh-looking Craftsman.

“It has original, long-leaf pine hardwood floors, concrete countertops, custom cabinetry, chef-style cooktop and all stainless steel appliances,” Thrasher said. “There is a second living room at the back of the home, affording a formal living at the front.”

He noted that all appliances, including the washer and dryer, are included in the home. The kitchen, which has some beautiful cabinetry, is completely tricked out with a coffee bar, two sinks, slte tile on both the floor and backsplash. I do love that the den is in the back of the home — great for families with small children — and that the master suite is completely re-done with a totally ingenious floor plan.

“This house has an amazing master closet with an en-suite master bath that is highly coveted!” Thrasher said.

“Both tubs have been refinished, it has a Sonos in-house speaker system that is Bluetooth accessible from your phone,” Thrasher added. Plus, new HVAC was installed in 2015, so that’s one less thing to worry about.

This home is a fantastic combination of location, curb appeal, and stylish updates it’s no wonder we had to share it as our High Caliber Home of the Week sponsored by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans.
