This raised center hall cottage at 7030 Coliseum Street in Uptown is a stone’s throw from Audubon Park. It was built in 1898, the same year that the park’s golf course opened. Its entrance bisects a full-width front gallery flanked by six columns and crowned by a central dormer with a triptych of stained glass windows.
The interior is simple, elegant, and comfortable. Dove gray walls provide a soothing backdrop, while polished hardwood floors reflect the ample sunlight provided by large windows and transoms. Exposed beams lend interest to the 13-foot ceilings.
Built-in bookshelves are a cozy, functional touch in the den. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home has plenty of living area in its 2,271 square feet, and it comes with architectural plans for an attic buildout that would create an additional 1,110 square feet of space.
In the kitchen, find a commercial-grade Viking stove among the stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, and bar seating that opens to the dining and living area.
The master bedroom suite features a walk-in closet and master bathroom with an enclosure shower, double sinks, and bidet.
A screened porch spans the rear of the house and overlooks a beautifully landscaped yard with a sprinkler system. Its paved walking paths and shade trees are reminiscent of Audubon Park’s.
