This lovingly restored home is located on a corner lot on a tranquil tree lined street one block south of Coyote Creek. It consists of 4 bedrooms, 2 bathroom, and has approximately 2,200 square feet of living space nestled on a generous 6,098 square foot lot (51 x 127).
The grounds of the property have been meticulously designed and maintained. As you enter the front garden through the white picket fence and Jasmin covered arbor you arrive at the large front porch perfect for passing lazy afternoons with family and friends.
The lower level consists of a living room with leaded glass windows, hardwood floors, and period details such as coved ceilings and original crown molding. Adjacent to the living room there is a parlour with a gas fireplace, built-in entertainment center, bay windows with built-in bench seats with storage, and a full bathroom. A perfect spot for reading a novel by the warmth of the fire or watching your favorite television program. As you leave the den you enter the dramatic formal dining room with a built in China Cabinet with lots of detail. There is also a 4th bedroom downstairs that can easily be used as a home office or guest room.
As you go up the winding staircase you come upon a large landing that leads you to the three upper bedrooms and an enchanting remodeled bathroom with beautiful octagon tile floors.
The kitchen and laundry room were completely enlarged and opened up with permits in 2000. The kitchen has painted wood floors, granite counters and a granite Island, a stainless steel 4 burner stove with a large Viking Hood, a skylight, and expansive 10 foot ceilings with crown molding. It is quite spacious and light and bright and will accommodate a small table for informal dining. It is the perfect gathering spot for friends and family get togethers.
As you exit the kitchen and step in the backyard space you will be enchanted by the careful planning and combination of hardscape, landscape, lawn, fountain, and pergola which combine to make a delightful private outdoor entertaining area spacious enough for large gatherings. The pergola encompases the outdoor eating area with chandelier and string lighting making for a enchanting dining experience. At the rear of the lot there is a detached 2 car garage and gated driveway enclosed by fencing.
The property has been meticulously maintained and improved. There is a quarter basement large enough for plenty of storage, Douglas Fir floors, dual-forced air heat, and large mature trees. The owners are retiring to be near their grandkids and are looking for someone who will appreciate and care for this gracious Victorian home as they have for the last 20 years.
