2401 Carmel Street is an adorable bungalow on one of the most coveted street in Lincoln Heights. Built in 1943 and thoughtfully remodeled, this home will please the pickiest of buyers.

Step into the house and it is evident that remodeling was done with a great attention to detail. Anderson dual paned windows that pop out for easy cleaning, Hunter Douglas linen shades, and Benjamin Moore paint colors are featured throughout. Beautiful satin finished hardwood floors add style and sophistication.

The heart of this home is the beautifully remodeled kitchen. It is packed with amazing features! The design elements are understated, tasteful and timeless. Custom teak horizontal grain custom cabinets, honed Caesarstone countertops, glass tile backslash and large white porcelain floor tiles adorn the space. Appliances include a Samsung French door refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, Jenn-Air downdraft stove and a Kohler sink. A frosted glass door in the kitchen leads out to the side of the house where the washer and dryer are kept. Keep going and you will find yourself in the back yard. The kitchen is open to the dining area and living room making it ideal for entertaining.

The dining area has recessed lighting and opens to the living room where you will find a cozy wood burning fireplace with floor to ceiling porcelain tiles. Verdant views out of the living room windows set a peaceful tone.

The front bedroom has a custom desk and shelving with rosewood inlay and Murphy bed, making a versatile room for both a home office and guests.

The remodeled bathroom is conveniently located in the hallway near both bedrooms. It features a reclaimed Singer sewing machine repurposed as a pedestal base sink, Murano glass light fixtures, shower surround with glass inlay and Italian porcelain tile floors. The back bedroom is artfully painted and has sliding glass doors leading out to the backyard.

The outdoor space at this home is just wonderful! The home is well sited on a 4,680 square foot lot (per public records.) The front patio is set up off the street and will be a great place to take in the sun, drink your coffee, and read the paper or your device of choice! The backyard can be accessed down the side of the house from the kitchen or from the back bedroom. It will be the place of countless BBQ's and outdoor parties. During the summer months all of your friends will want to hang out in this backyard!

Beautiful hardscape creates a great space for entertaining and the olive and pepper trees bring nature to your door. There is even a peak-a-boo view from the back deck. Set back from the street there is a great sense of privacy.

Beyond the home, the neighborhood is amazing! Looking for a break from the hustle and bustle? Wonderful hiking trails can be found at Dimond, Joaquin Miller and Redwood Regional Parks. The annual Greek Festival and Oktoberfest are neighborhood favorites.

All this and easy access to AC Transit lines and highways 13, 24, and 580.
