Make a home in history right here at 411 Lightfoot Road. Tucked in a grove of mature trees, this exquisite historical home is a sight to behold. Built in 1915 from blueprints drawn up in 1906 as the neighborhood’s original farmhouse, this home has been modernized with absolute care to keep the timeless integrity of the original design. Take in the grand foyer and travel into the inviting sitting room or dining room. The open-plan den lit by the floor-to-ceiling windows spills into the beautifully renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances and kitchen island topped with a one-of-a-kind custom wooden block surface. Take a few steps out onto the luxurious screened-in porch, perfect for outdoor entertaining— simply opening the connecting windows brings indoor comfort and outdoor life together. Follow the hallway behind the kitchen to a convenient office, bathroom and mudroom through to a great family room with wet bar, built in storage and entertainment center. An adjoining laundry room leads down to a secure cellar. Go up the classically carved split stairs to the second floor with four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. The corner bedroom has been constructed with a unique box trundle bed and built in shelving, the center bedroom enjoys views from a wide bay window, and both share a full bathroom. The guest room has its own ensuite bathroom and shower, and the master bathroom’s jet tub is lit by charming shutter windows overlooking the garden. The Indian Hills and Mockingbird Valley neighborhood was developed in 1911 under the contract of the legendary Olmsted firm, the minds behind New York City’s Central Park. This is reflected in the beautiful garden, complete with waterlily pond and stone patio with a path leading to the large detached garage. A few farther steps will lead to the Cane Station Cemetery, a peaceful place that the community uses for holiday gatherings. Thought and care went into preserving and enhancing this beautiful historic home for a modern lifestyle.
