Conscientiously maintained by three generations of the same family since they bought it in 1917, this well-preserved classic bungalow sits comfortably above street level overlooking the surrounding neighborhood. It has something for everybody to love, including a spacious living room with bay windows and lots of light, a formal dining room with period built-ins, a convenient kitchen which is usable “as is” or easily upgradable to fit the buyer’s custom tastes; and quiet bedrooms well above street level for slumbering through the night. Enjoy the versatility of this 2 bedroom / 1 bath home of 1,211 SF on a 3,960 SF lot. Includes a sun room / laundry conveniently off the kitchen which can possibly be used as a 3d bedroom since the public records consider it to be. Features Douglas Fir floors throughout (currently covered by wall-to-wall carpeting). Includes an unfinished lower level of approximately 600 SF waiting to be transformed!
The private yard is ideal for enjoying your morning coffee from nearby Cole Coffee as well as evening wine with family and friends beneath the stars. It is fully fenced and kid / pet friendly and includes plenty of room for gardening, dining and entertaining.
