Featured Home: Landmark Historic Midtown Home (Ellis Team)

May 12, 2010

868 Myrtle Street

Rarely does an opportunity like this come along. Located on Myrtle Street is a spectacular Historic Midtown home built in 1909. The home has been renovated so there will be no need for updating. From the lush landscaping to the deep wood tones inside, there is a richness that is unsurpassed.

Front Porch

There is so much in the details of this landmark home. Solid wood doors, stained wood-trimmed windows, immaculate hardwoods, brass doorplate with skeleton key lock, exposed brick walls and a staircase that is breathtaking as it climbs up three levels. All quintessential elements from days gone by. As you often hear people say, they just don’t make them like they used to.


Keeping with the era in which the home was built, the rooms are large with high ceilings and many have fireplaces. One fireplace has an original brick surround. Great entertaining opportunities can be found in one of the multiple sitting rooms or in the dining room with beamed ceiling. The dining room seats twelve or more and will be an easy conversation starter.

Private Deck and Backyard

The kitchen has a bar that accommodates four comfortably and stained cabinetry with granite countertops. A professional grade stove sits back into an original brick recess. There is plenty of room for preparing for a large party or a quiet dinner for two. A butler’s pantry with custom stained cabinetry and glass front upper cabinets is a beautiful place to display your glassware and set up a bar area.

All four bedrooms are oversized with room for bedroom furniture and a sitting area. The master bedroom has a remarkable wood enclave and perfectly placed lighting. Step into the master bath and you will honestly feel like you are in a luxury Manhattan hotel. Tile runs floor to ceiling in soothing earth tones. A frameless glass shower with teak flooring and separate recessed garden tub run the length of one wall. The design of the double vanity opposite the shower and tub is breathtaking. What a tranquil place to start a day.

The outside spaces are just as accommodating as the rest of this home. A private backyard and raised patio give lots of room for relaxing and enjoying your slice of Midtown living. The large front porch is a wonderful place to sit back and feel the energy that is Midtown’s alone.
