Built in 1912, this charming bungalow is classic with a modern twist. Chic, yet comfortable. The spacious living room contains original oak floors and includes an attached sunroom. At the center of the living room is an antique fireplace with built-in china cabinets and storage lining the walls. This area seamlessly transitions into the kitchen, which features a Summit refrigerator, Wedgewood stove, Maytag dishwasher, rustic wooden countertops, and a floor-to-ceiling pantry. Adjacent to the kitchen is a den-like area, which extends seamlessly to a south facing deck, a clever exterior extension of the home’s floor plan.
Attached to the kitchen is a breakfast nook with additional storage, perfect for morning coffee and pastries.
Beyond the breakfast nook is the laundry room, which features marmoleum floors, washer/dryer, and large utility sink. The room is well-lit with windows overlooking the mini orchard.
A hallway with an original linen cupboard and bright windows leads to the bedrooms. The first door opens into a half bathroom, with lovely penny round blue-grey tiling. A second door will surprise you with its efficient storage. The master bedroom features a closet, and its own full vintage pedestal enamel bathtub. Farther down the hall, the second bedroom’s windows face south and east, overlooking the garden. Across the way lies a full bath with a combination shower/ deep enamel bathtub, pedestal sink, and bathroom vanity with mirror. The bright white subway tiles surrounding the back give the bath its modern feel, yet draw attention to the emerald hexagonal floor tiles with white detailing. The third bedroom sits at the end of the hall, and streams in the morning light, and features a fine view of the garden.
Outside a deck leads into the lovely backyard. Stepping stones guide you to the deck and pergola, raised garden beds, covered patio, and beautifully maintained lawn. A chicken coop lies beyond the garden beds. The yard is perfect for cultivating an urban garden or entertaining guests with evening barbeques in a lush setting.
