Designer Craftsman Steps from College Ave

Tucked away off the street with access to everything College Ave has to offer is 6409 Benvenue Ave. Designed by noted local design firm, Jarvis Architects, this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom home exemplifies quality craftsmanship from top to bottom.

Built as one of 6 new homes in 2011, the attention to detail and superior quality is truly unique. With a welcoming front porch, the entry flows through to the open-concept living space. Connecting the kitchen, living, and dining areas is charming craftsman style molding, with large windows that allow for an abundance of natural light to flood the space. Here you will also find the kitchen, which offers old world charm with modern conveniences. The freshly painted shaker-style cabinets are topped with beautiful dark stone countertops, while the herringbone tile backsplash is highlighted by the new charming wicker pendant lights. Ideal for alfresco dining, this space also features glass doors that lead to a private garden patio making outdoor dinner parties a breeze. Perfect for your fluffy friend, the patio offers a section of artificial grass that makes a wonderful play area as well. Included on the main level is the chic powder room and large entry coat closet.

Ushering you upstairs is the central staircase, beautifully lit with large windows and high ceilings. Featured on the second level are stunning vaulted vintage wood ceilings, which are showcased throughout. Two darling bedrooms share a hall bathroom featuring a shower-over-bath. The primary suite can also be found on this level. Cozy and calm it features a glass slider with a Juliette balcony and a charming ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower and built-in vanity. On the lowermost level is the studio basement, which includes a kitchenette, bathroom, and murphy bed with built-in storage cabinets. With exterior access, the space is perfect for a home office and guest suite. Exquisitely crafted the home also features solar, radiant heat, dedicated off-street parking and so much more. Ideally located between all the eateries, shops, and cafes on College Ave in Rockridge and Elmwood, this home couldn’t be better situated with great schools and a friendly community. Welcome home.
