Upon first impression, 829 Woodlawn is a modest ranch-style house in a great neighborhood. Once you step inside, however, even Fay Jones himself would be pleased.
The home displays a modern approach (well, modern for the 1950s) to age-old craftsmanship and finely detailed woodwork. The exposed ceiling timbers and tongue-and-groove decking show how sturdy this home is. Don’t worry, the ceiling is insulated, but from above, between the decking and the metal roof.

The indirect lighting above the closets illuminate the stained wood ceiling, invoking a sense of deep warmth and comfort, a coziness that could only be enhanced by the flickering glow of the fireplace.
Hardwood floors maintain the comfort and coziness throughout the living room, reading nook (yes, that’s right, there’s a reading nook in this house), and into the bedrooms. The bathrooms have been fully remodeled with modern fixtures and even a refurbished tub.
As you descend the stairs to the lower floor, you’ll find a secondary living space, two more bedrooms, and another fully remodeled bathroom. From the downstairs living space, you can exit the back door onto a private back yard covered patio with massive vaulted ceiling and exposed timbers. Invite your friends for a neighborhood bocce party and barbeque.
What else, you say? The roof is less than 10 years old. The HVAC is three years old and still has manufacturer’s warranty. The bathrooms were remodeled just last year. And did we mention how gorgeous and unquestionably strong the exposed timber ceiling is?
829 Woodlawn is located precisely where it should be — in the middle of town, adjacent to the historic district, and on the lower slopes of Mount Sequoyah in a quiet, well-connected neighborhood. Where else would you want to be?
