Set in lovely Bella Vista, this 1911 bungalow is sweet, classic and ready to enjoy. The simply-landscaped front yard is anchored by a Japanese maple and filled with butterfly-loving plants such as passion flower, hydrangea, grasses and native plants. From the street, a quintessential silhouette has the definitive look of “home.”
Inside, it has been thoughtfully updated while retaining its architectural finishes. The living room and dining room have some nice Craftsman touches in the built-ins and millwork. A sweet picture window gives ample light to the sun filled room, and the dining room has high wainscoting and plate rails.
The eat-in kitchen is light and spacious, with granite counters and stainless steel sink and appliances. A laundry room and convenient WC sit off the kitchen.
There are two good-sized bedrooms; the primary bedroom has a roomy closet and a lovely view of the back yard. A full remodeled bathroom is nearby. As a bonus, there is an enormous basement that runs the length of the house. Possibilities abound to make this space a home office, gym, media room, rec room, workshop - or just for plenty of storage. A separate exit to the back garden is another handy feature.
The backyard is a wonderful surprise - a large patio area is ideal for dining or entertaining and a second area is perfect for lounging with friends or reading a book. Jasmine and fuchsia bring color and scent, and the trees include citrus, pineapple guava, peach, maple, magnolia and an ornamental pomegranate. This thoughtfully designed garden is a place to relax and savor as a private oasis.
With modern comforts and traditional touches, this charming bungalow is a great place to call home.
