Share News:

Buyers flock to Cochran Heights near Knox-Henderson for the wonderfully eclectic homes, ranging from jaw-dropping Dilbecks to just the coolest urban contemporary home you’ve seen with multi-colored panes of glass that literally stops traffic at the corner of Garrett and Milam.

But there’s a French modern at 5211 Milam Street that is just the perfect blend of upscale fashion and understated elegance. It’s listed by Lori Ericsson of David Griffin and Company Realtors for $849,000, and it’s open to the public tomorrow from 2 to 4 p.m. for your viewing pleasure.

The three-bedroom, three-and-half bath home was extensively remodeled using bespoke materials throughout the spacious 3,369-square-foot floorplan, Ericsson tells us.

Built in 1940, expanded in 1995, and updated in 2017, this two-story home has classic, quality architecture with modern conveniences of today. Custom features including French doors with distinctive iron and glass accent set this home apart. 

You’ll find dramatic 12-foot ceilings in the formal living and dining areas that give way to comfort in the open living area that flows into the gourmet kitchen featuring Bosch appliances.

One undeniably cool part of this home is the multi-colored coffered wall of bookshelves in the stairwell up to the second floor. Upstairs, you’ll find the master suite, a second living area, guest bedroom, and laundry room.

The huge master suite features a walk-out terrace, sitting area, and spa-inspired bathroom with Spanish Porcelanosa tile, dual vanities, standalone shower, and custom walk-in closet system.

There is plenty of room to entertain in this executive home with covered patio, resort-style pool, second-floor terrace, and private patio off the office — and that’s just in your own backyard. Enjoy a vibrant residential neighborhood while being able to walk to restaurants, bars, and retail shops.
