6135 N. Knox Ave. sits on over 4 city lots all side by side. Since the home is U-shaped, there’s a front, side and back yard. The side yard includes a large patio with a built-in grill and counter that seats several people. The back yard has a basketball court and other play areas. There’s a detached 2 car garage and driveway.

THE MANSION

6135 N. Knox Ave. was built in 1934. There are 3 levels (2 above ground) in this 8,000 SF home. It has 6 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms and 3 half bathrooms. There are 3 fireplaces.

When I entered the main level I noticed several stained-glass windows and lot of restored woodwork. Unlike many vintage homes the kitchen is open to a family room. The second level has the bedrooms and a a laundry room.

The basement has a built-in swim in place pool. According to the listing agent, the pool’s cover is strong enough to hold 3 adults! There’s also a high-powered dehumidifier to remove excess moisture generated by the pool. The sellers are willing to remove the pool, if the buyers don’t want it.
