A gorgeous, traditional Tudor-style home has hit the market in University Park. Basking in the sunlight on an oversized corner lot, the spectacular home at 3500 Centenary offers the beauty of classic architecture coupled with a showcase space for entertaining both indoors and outdoors.

This is the kind of dwelling that produces house envy.

The five bedroom, five bath and two half bath stunner spans more than 7,000 square feet. The current asking price comes in at $3,295,000.

Located in the heart of the University Park fairway, the home at 3500 Centenary is located within easy access to several parks to relish on sunny days. Of particular note to families with little kiddos — the home is in walking distance to Hyer Elementary School.

From the moment you first lay eyes on this home, you’re liable to fall in love with its classic façade.

“The exterior is traditional Tudor, but it’s not heavy — it’s light and bright with a very open floor plan,” listing agent Michelle Wood says.

“It’s got a light, very warm feeling. It’s a great family home.”

While the house is roomy and inviting, the rooms are well-proportioned for a comfortable, expansive-yet-intimate feel.

“The room sizes are really well-proportioned. They don’t feel too big, and they don’t feel too small,” Wood notes.

A brick path leads up to the lovely front of the home, which spans three spacious stories with front and back stairs and an elevator.

A completely renovated kitchen is a chef’s dream, and the cooking space at 3500 Centenary delivers world class perks, from the commercial grade vent and double oven to the warming drawer. The vent-a-hood blends in seamlessly in the dove-gray kitchen, replete with a chic center island that boasts extra storage.

Two ample living room areas make for perfect gathering spaces for the family, plus ideal locales for parties and get-togethers.

“It’s a great house for entertaining,” Wood says. The family room opens to lovely pool, spa, and outdoor fireplace and grill.

The oversized backyard has its own living space.

Natural light pours into the spaces from the large windows, thanks to its position on the corner lot. The rooms have excellent flow, in keeping with the circular, open floor plan.

Four fireplaces add comfort around the home. The second floor boasts four bedrooms, while a final, expansive en-suite bedroom is situated on the third floor for peak privacy.

“The home has one of my favorite master suites, with a large attached sitting area. It has a really nice-sized master bath with separate closets and well-appointed, separate vanities,” Wood says.

The house at 3500 Centenary goes beyond everyday comforts with additions like a generous game room, wine cellar and a library with a secluded adjoining study.

There’s so much to appreciate at 3500 Centenary. There are dream homes — and then there are dream homes that are family perfect. It’s not always an easy combination to find. 3500 Centenary delivers it.
