Hip Pocket Alert: Great Location in UP, Big Name Architect, Not Yet in MLS

3824 Centenary

A recent question in Quora posed, how do you find a home in this tight RE market before it hits the market?

Answer: Christy Berry. Berry tells me she has a hip pocket that is to-die-for great on Centenary in University Park that you might want to take a gander at: five bedrooms, four and a half baths, entertaining space galore and one of the prettiest HP pools I have seen. Asking is $2,349,000.

“The home is not going on the market until next week,” says Christy. “And it’s on one of UP’s most prestigious streets, with a Larry Boerder architectural pedigree.”

There are 5320 square feet of updated finishes with a large, bright kitchen, eat in breakfast area, and spectacular family room. Formals, of course. The second floor has all five bedrooms including the master suite, spa bath and laundry room. French doors open to the back yard, which is turfed, with a brand new pool and outdoor grilling area. There is potential for a finished third level and hence more square footage. This is Centenary: everything is an easy walk to the delights of Preston Center: Sprinkles, Swoozies, R&D Cafe, etc.

Come to think of it, I should buy this house and keep the kitchen pristine white by just dining at R&D every night… think I’d get a discount? Jump for more photos…
