If you’re looking for a country estate in the city AND award-winning Upper Arlington schools, look no further than 4300 Riverside. This historic home, sitting majestically atop an acre+ lot, has the charm that can’t be duplicated in a new build with the modern conveniences families have come to expect in a home. Nearly every surface and system has been updated with thoughtful upgrades. From the moment you walk through the front door, you will be struck by the unique architecture and attention to detail in the home’s appointments. The spacious living room, with its bay window and marble fireplace, leads to the den and sunroom, lined with windows overlooking the gorgeous backyard. Stone walls, the view and brick floors make this space the perfect place to set up an easel, play music or read a book. The adjoining dining room, with curved walls and built-in leaded glass china cabinet, is the perfect place to gather to enjoy holiday dinners. Top-of-the-line appliances and vintage schoolhouse lights are featured in the sunny eat-in kitchen, which leads to the cozy family room with stone fireplace, wet bar, and built-ins galore. An expansive mudroom/office/summer kitchen connects the family room to the new four-car-garage with bonus room above and the outdoor spaces that extend the square footage into the beautiful setting. Custom Amish cabinets with a built-in corner desk overlook the bluestone covered porch and fountain with waterfall. Climb the stairs to a bonus room that has proven to be the ultimate man-cave. A full bathroom, wet bar and built-in 80-inch television and sound system are included, in addition to an office with built-ins. The new master suite is the crown jewel of the second-floor overhaul. A vaulted ceiling, board and batten walls, and closet space galore are unexpected and delightful in an older home. Steam shower, heated floors and a giant tub make you feel like you’re in a spa in the master bath, which leads to a walk-in closet outfitted with custom vanity, storage island and washer/dryer. Two more spacious bedrooms and full bathrooms complete the second floor. A bright, sunny basement with wet bar and fireplace is the perfect hangout space for the kids. Outside the French doors from the mudroom is a covered patio with skylights, fireplace, television, bead-board ceiling and built-in heaters, making it a usable space most of the months of the year. The built-in grill area makes it the ultimate space to entertain in the summer. A vaulted screened porch is adjacent and is a sweet spot to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a cocktail in the afternoon sun. Finally, with space for five cars and custom built-in cabinets, the garage space is unheard of in UA. This home is a showplace and an entertainer’s dream.
