Enjoy superb original construction and updated along the way, the home offers 10 high ceilings throughout the main level and 9 foot high ceilings on the second. The siding is true stucco, not EIFS and provides excellent insulation and sound reduction. Home was pre-inspected and all major repairs have been made to electrical wiring, plumbing, crawlspace, HVAC and wood burning fireplace. A new roof was installed earlier this year. Inspection report and receipts are available upon request. The kitchen and baths have been updated and all appliances including gas range and hood, dishwasher, refrigerator, beverage cooler, speed oven, microwave, washer and dryer are included. (Currently the solar powered driveway gate is not functioning)
Current owners had the attic sealed and the roof was replaced in 2021. At 100 years old this home is in remarkable condition.
The basement has direct exterior access and a finished concrete floor. While not actively heated or cooled the temperature remains steady and comfortable throughout the year. Owners used it as a music studio, and it could make an excellent artists studio, game room, wine cellar etc.
You'll enjoy relaxing on the deep, shaded front porch with inlaid tile. This is a perfect spot on hot summer days to indulge in some people watching. The courtyard like back yard offers a stone patio, mature landscaping, detached garage and off street parking. Flat back yard is a home gardener’s dream, perfect for growing your own fruit and vegetables.
