4901 South WOODLAWN Avenue
In 1902 renowned architect Howard van Doren Shaw designed this magnificent seven-bedroom residence. Shaw relied on traditional English architecture but built quite modern houses. The formal areas of the 1st level feature original plasterwork and stained glass with pomegranates and grapevines, set against stunning woodwork. These details are not rooted in the past, but blend with amenities required by today's standards. The chef's kitchen is a cook's dream come true, with adjacent pantry and access to the large backyard with 2 car coach house/rental unit. Up the grand staircase of the main house, the Master offers a walk-in closet & ensuite bath; 3 additional bdrms, 3 more baths and laundry complete this floor. On the 3rd level are a family room, 3 bdrms, 2nd kitchen and outdoor entertaining area. Seven fireplaces warm the interiors, which feature zoned air conditioning for summer months. A resplendent urban estate, where you can write the next chapter of this home's incredible history.
