Inman Park is known for possessing some of Atlanta’s oldest and most beautiful homes but it’s incredibly rare that one of its quintessential and signature Grand Dames graces the real estate market. Many of us drive through Inman Park in awe of these sculpted homes of a bygone era but only a few can be called a Victorian masterpiece. 192 Hurt Street is presently offered to someone with a passion for not just a home but a historic enchantress.
Situated on over 1/3 of an acre and across from one of Inman’s lovely parks, sits a home that has been preserved with many of its original vintage attributes. The home is surrounded by a distinctive custom wrought iron fence. As you approach the front, you are greeted by a charming fountain and huge wrap around porch. The front door is original with leaded glass. The large foyer is framed by an elegant staircase and a quaint fireplace. The front parlor is to the right and features decorative wooden arches leading to the large dining room ready for a decorous dinner party.
11 foot ceilings throughout give the first floor a wonderful sense of substantial proportions. After walking by a gorgeous pocket door with leaded glass, you enter the main central hallway. To the left is a den or library perfect for an office or reading room. At the back of the house you will find a very spacious family room and eat-in kitchen that includes both a breakfast bar and a bar for lively evening pursuits. Off the family room is a light filled casual dining area where you can watch the world go by enjoying a a coffee or a meal.
The second floor features five bedrooms and two full baths plus a large billiard room. The Billiard room leads to a balcony over looking the front yard and its majestic trees. The master suit sits at the front of the home and features a raised tower room that creates the distinctive Victorian turret at the corner of the house. The backyard features a sunken hidden garden and a high brick wall creating a wonderful private oasis. This is more than a home. It’s a piece of art ready for its preservation that will shepherd into the next century.
