Hot Property: A Craftsman-Style Charmer in Vickery Park

This 2016 build has four bedrooms, 4,000 square feet, and an enviable location right off Knox/Henderson.

Welcome to Willis Avenue, a quaint street in Vickery Park. Though this neighborhood is just a short walk away from shops, restaurants, and nightlife on Henderson Avenue, Willis Avenue has a cozy suburban feel. The street is lined with a mix of decades-old and just-built homes, most of which are architecturally similar. You’ll find countless Craftsman homes, Victorians, bungalow-style builds, and Tudors.

5219 Willis Avenue is a classic Craftsman with a cheery cornflower blue façade. Its crisp white trim, light stone pillars, and pale gray shingles all complement its bold color.

This home was purchased by the current owners while it was still in the construction process, and it was fully customized to suit their needs. Once inside, you’ll notice an extra-wide center hall; to one side is a formal living and dining room, and to the other is a study.

From there, step into the kitchen, where an oversized white marble island is complemented by a metallic gray backsplash. The layout flows into a family room, which features a stone fireplace flanked by custom millwork and built-in shelving.

A guest suite and bathroom are located on the ground floor, while the upper level houses the primary suite, two other bedrooms, a game room, and a media room.

Outside, a covered porch comes equipped with a fireplace, a TV, and overhead fans. A small lawn separates the home from the detached two-car garage.
