HOMES: 1903 College Ave., Conway

Posted: February 21, 2014 - 5:51pm

Old town Conway has some of the most beautiful homes around, and this one at 1903 College Ave. is at the top of the list when it comes to a lovely place to live.

Offered for sale through Charlotte John Company, this four-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath Colonial-style home is 3,100 square feet of classic design and modern updates. Dark brick is used on the façade, with a touch of black on the window shutters. The curb appeal is particularly enhanced by a large wood door with double sidelights and an upper arched transom-style window.

A warm, cozy feeling is apparent as you walk in the foyer, but this home is perfect for formal social gatherings as well. Particularly nice features include two fireplaces, formal living and dining rooms and a completely floored attic.

From the foyer, the home offers several options, including entry into the formal dining room, the formal living space and the grand staircase leading to the second floor and its private, family areas. Through the use of hardwood flooring, along with neutral colors on the walls and crown molding, these spaces are open and inviting, hopefully convincing you to come in and sit awhile.

The formal living room has very pretty tall windows, two of which flank a wood burning fireplace with a marble inset. Hardwood continues on the floors of this room, which is the ideal place for chatting with guests.

Further on into the house is the den, which has many unique features. You will love the splash of wall color, which brightens even more when the sun shines through the large windows lining one wall. The den has a truly unique fireplace with gas briquettes.

The kitchen is nicely updated and designed for preparing dinners of all shapes and sizes. The center island has an electric stove-top and extra storage below, including a built-in space for a microwave or other small appliances. An added bonus is that the refrigerator conveys with the home, as does an updated Thermadore electric stove with downdraft vent. A small desk area and a cozy eat-in area with custom lighting are also featured. Access to the back yard is available from the kitchen.

The upstairs bedrooms are all carpeted and spacious, offering many options for usage. One room is currently being used as an office/study, and it would also be nice for a nursery or a media room.

Other features include:

• Separate sun room.

• Two-car, rear entry garage.

• Mature landscaping with irrigation system.

• Brick deck in fenced back yard.

• Central heat and air.

• Workshop and craft area.

• Basement.

• Corner lot.

This home is a rare find in Conway, especially with its proximity to the city’s vibrant downtown. Offered for sale at $310,000, this is a must-see for discriminating homebuyers.
