This 1927 Hoyt inspired Spanish Revival home, located on 17th Avenue Parkway in Park Hill is rich in history. Situated on almost a quarter of an acre, the set back off of the Parkway gives it an appearance of grandeurÃ¢â‚¬Â¦while also being unassuming. This was important since the home contained a speakeasy in the basement during the time of prohibition making it a popular neighborhood spot for knowing neighbors. The original door that concealed the speakeasy is still in place along the steel enclosed bar. Through the years the house was brought up-to-date with modern additions from the main floor family room/office to the 2-car garage with a rooftop sunning deck accessible from the backyard. Further, it had the kitchen enlarged for todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s standards. All of this was done while not disturbing the beautiful architectural details from the time period it was built This would include the rod-iron work on the front door to the main staircase railing. The living area still boasts cathedral cove ceilings and palladium windows throughout. Also unusual is that all three bedrooms on the second floor contain an ensuite bathroom. Furthermore, the main bedroom has ample closet space, also an anomaly for this time period of a home. A guest suite and bath are privately suited in the basement along with a wine cellar. This exquisite home eloquently combines the period of time in which it was built to our current modern day living. The home in the past worked well for families, empty nesters as well young couples. Truly one of Park HillÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s finest.
