Hot property: The house where Craftsman style is blended with contemporary luxuries

New on briggsfreeman.com is 4437 Amherst Avenue in University Park, loaded with flair from its flagstone path out front its resort pool in the back. In between? Think stone fireplace, chef’s kitchen, first-floor owner's suite, guest quarters and a home office — complete with its own fireplace. Now, that's how you work from home in style. Expert agent Tessa Mosteller has this special listing. The Traditional-style home is surrounded by mature trees and beautiful landscaping. Its design cues tap into the warm, wonderful Craftsman style, especially evident in all the marvelous millwork and wall paneling inside. You're greeted by the formal living area with its custom cast-stone fireplace and hardwood floors, then the home flows through the dining room and into the chef’s kitchen. That beautiful space is outfitted with a large island with a breakfast bar, stainless-steel appliances and elegant paneled cabinetry. The main floor also contains the luxurious owner's suite, augmented with a generous walk-in closet and a private bath with two vanities and a large, freestanding, farmhouse-style bathtub. French doors open from here onto a patio with a seating area. The incredible home office/library, with its own fireplace, is down the hallway from the owner's suite. In all, the 2,930-square-foot home features four bedrooms and three baths. Outside, the elegance continues. A flagstone pathway runs along the property, through the side yard and leads to the lush backyard space. Enclosed by large trees, landscaping and a stone wall, the pool and hot tub are private and tranquil — the perfect place to spend quiet mornings or relaxing nights. The guest quarters are outstanding, with a private entry, a home gym and a full bath. This world away from it all is — surprisingly — just steps from the restaurants, shops and salons of Lovers Lane, along with Hyer Elementary, Highland Park High School and Germany Park. This is a gem of a home, awaiting its next chapter. 4337 Amherst Avenue in University Park is represented by Tessa Mosteller for $1,295,000.
