Property Description

You'll be able to move right into this handsome 3-story, 4-5 BRs, 2 baths, 2025 s.f. townhouse! The owners have cared for it beautifully and made many upgrades to compliment its original Craftsman-style details dating from the turn of the 20th century, including lovely refinished wood flooring in many rooms. The front porch overlooks a landscaped front garden. Enter through the vestibule, into a large, bright living room featuring an elegant decorative fireplace. The wide doorway to the dining room is flanked by columns. Next is a rehabbed kitchen with granite countertops and oak cabinets - and beyond it, a large breakfast room, with more oak cabinets and additional counter space! Sliding doors open up to the back patio with garden
borders. Front and rear stairs lead up to the 2nd floor, with a sunny front main bedroom featuring a bay of windows with window seats. Also on the 2nd floor are a hall bath and 2 more bedrooms. The 3rd floor has another 2 rooms and full bath. There's also a deep, full basement. Mechanicals are recent, including central a/c for the first floor (window units on the upper floors). All knob & tube electrical wiring was removed from the house. The location is within a few blocks of Barkan Park, the U.C. Swim Club, & the H.C. Lea K-8 public school. Dine nearby at the new 48th St. Grille!
