Whatever the house at 271 Crocker in tony Piedmont is putting down, we are lapping up and asking for seconds. From its elegant facade to its whimsical interiors, this home us a sheer delight.
Featuring five beds, six and a half baths, and 5,887 square feet, this 1924 house boasts seemingly over-the-top elements that work together to make a cohesive habitable experience, from the glossy soaring ceilings to the cheetah print rugs in the foyer.
This is what a good comprehensive renovation looks like. Almost 100 years later, this traditional style home now boasts chandeliers in the kitchen, boxed ceilings in living room, matching red print wallpaper and window treatments in the dining room, an unabashedly over-the-top master closet/dressing room (with windows galore), and more.
Granted, the gray is a tad long in the tooth for 2017, but it still works here.
The interiors here provide an excellent example of how excessive can be done right, with neither a movie theater nor wellness room in sight.
In a word, glorious. In another word, expensive. Asking is $4,250,000.
