Description

The Cavender House built as a spacious and elegant family home in 1906 sits on the corner of Oak and Central Avenue and provides presence and visibility. It is in close vicinity to three major area hospitals, University of Tennessee, and downtown attractions, restaurants and entertainment. The ample parking space paved for eight cars in its own private courtyard is a rarity in a residential neighborhood where residents must park their cars on the street.Listed on the National Gallery of Historic Homes, this unique Victorian Home wasgrandfathered for R4 zoning in January of 1981, and is perfect for a business, a group of professionals, or for residential use. Can also be considered for a B&B a/o an AirBNB with owner occupancy based on new zoning. Additional off street, leased parking is available across the street.Constructed of solid brick, this two story home with a three quarter finished basement, and an attic that runs the entire length and breadth of the house boasts an original roof with pyramid and gable roof, wood shingled dormer and front gable pediment, one-story wrap around porch with small Ionic columns, oak and pinewood floors, wainscoting, original mouldings, chair rails in the dining room, high ceilings and transoms. Seven fireplaces with each mantlepiece a work of art, feature engraved fireplace fittings and are highlights of the home. The same tiger oak is used on the three, floor to ceiling massive pocket doors which give privacy to the parlor and the dining room. Beautiful woodwork carvings and intricate etchings throughout the home demonstrate the quality of workmanship. The foyer of the main floor opens to a sitting area with fireplace and grand staircase. Down the corridor of the main floor, there is a half bath, a walk-in pantry equipped with a lighted wall mirror, sink and built-in cabinetry, leading to a large room that had formerly been used as a kitchen and has a sink, cabinetry, and storage area at one end of the room.Adjacent to it is a small sitting room with an original diamond shaped pane glass window and a door leading to the back entrance. There is a tiny half bath with the original chain flush toilet, a unique feature that was kept intact, as was the little storage room under the staircase. An atrium with a chair lift was added to the back of the home to allow for transport from the first level to the second floor. A back staircase from the former kitchen and pantry vestibule leads up to the maid's room which has a picture window overlooking the parking area. Walking up the impressive tiger oak staircase from the foyer of the main floor, you step into another world where time seems to stand still. The upstairs hallway leads to four large bedrooms all with high ceilings and huge windows. The beautiful bay window in the front bedroom overlooks the tree lined Oak Street and provides for an inviting setting. At the end of the corridor is a bathroom with the original claw-foot tub and a separate half bath. The basement area includes a full bath, kitchen and storage. This turn of the century home is both grand and beautiful. It has been well maintained with both electrical and plumbing updates. It's location makes it desirable as both a resident or multi-office space. Character abounds creating warmth as a resident or inviting ambience for an office. Truly a one of a kind home.
