Curbside Cottage Charm Exudes on Hockaday Drive

Share News:

While we’ve all been virtually redesigning our interiors from home, it’s important to remember the old fashioned value of curb appeal, too. Just a stone’s throw from The Hockaday School, this 1962 home exudes cottage charm, even from the street.

If the deep-green shutters against the peach brick don’t immediately win you over, the smart use of space just might. The 3,566-square-foot home holds five bedrooms and three bathrooms (two of which have been recently updated). And it all comes in at $699,500, listed by Kiersten Humbert of Dave Perry-Miller Park Cities

French doors add to the cottage charm

Inside, find hardwood floors and a cozy living space with double French doors and a grey brick fireplace.

The first floor also includes a spacious den for movie nights, an intimate dining space, and a roomy breakfast nook just off the kitchen, complete with an island and stainless-steel hood.

The original master bedroom is also on the first floor, which includes a large closet with Elfa shelving. 

But this story-and-a-half also features surprise pockets of space upstairs, too. There, you’ll find a newer, oversized master suite and an adjacent second bedroom. That makes it perfect for a baby’s nursery or home office—it all depends on your family’s needs.

Oh, and did we mention the backyard? Yep, you guessed it—plenty of space there, too. Enjoy a tiled patio area for entertaining and lots of green space for the kids to run around.

All in all, it’s the picture-perfect family home.
