We can only imagine how Todd is putting his feet up in this home after pulling off yet another Schlegel family wedding. Bring on the Hush Puppy slippers! No sooner than he gets comfortable, David Griffin is calling and bringing someone over for a showing. David just listed this Kessler Park treasure along with Jeff Mitchell. I also heard the home was leased out for Super Bowl week to a major celeb. Definite San Miguel de Allende feel in the hills of East Kessler, this home has been photographed and featured in so many shelter pubs you have to ask for an autograph!
The guys basically took a plain Jane Mediterranean built in the mid 90’s, and refined the original design into something both livable but appropriate for intimate and large scale entertaining. Many rooms open onto verdant outdoor living areas and patios, like a grand hacienda.
From the gorgeously heavy mahogany front door to every room, hand craftsmanship rules! Hand trawled plaster finish walls, antique doors, panels and windows carefully retrofitted to bring design authenticity. Flooring is unfilled 24 inch square travertine slabs in all the first floor rooms and outdoor covered living areas.
The living room is accessed via a charming entry vestibule, features a barrel vaulted ceiling and French limestone fireplace surround. The dining room has that Fiscus touch, surrounded on all sides by curtains hung from continuous iron rods.
The kitchen is spacious and open, built around a large marble topped central island, painted mahogany cabinets and stainless counter-tops. Stainless appliances include built-in refrigerator/freezer, wine cooler, warming drawer and a Thermador 6 burner gas stove. It’s a two-story with terra cotta roof and white stucco walls on one of those craggy Kessler 93 by 158 lots. The home has 2677 square feet (perfect for an empty nester) four bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and a 2-car garage. And of course, if those walls could talk… well maybe they will to the next owner!
