This 1920  built Arts & Crafts Era spacious 2 bedroom  bungalow satisfies both artistic & practical tastes. Craftsman Period built ins, hardwood floors, wood trims & window pairings nurture its calm, low profile, natural landscaped setting.  From the tasteful kitchen updating with square natural southwest style floor tile to systems improvements in plumbing and  electrical, newer roof, & some foundation upgrading, you will love the ambience.
Plentiful green front yard landscaping welcomes you onto the roomy front porch, itself a feature of the house. Ivy leaves twine about the solid iron railing and overhead ceiling with wood rafters  enclose this peaceful space. The solid wood, craftsman style front door with prairie-style glass lites speaks “welcome into our Craftsman bungalow home”.
You will find traditional details aplenty, beginning in the living room —a fireplace, hardwood floors, ceiling-cove molding, door and window trim, and extra-tall baseboard trim. Details extend into the dining room, where you face a large centerpiece built-in hutch with a lot of drawers and stained glass cabinet doors. Both rooms have plentiful windows, dressed with custom window coverings to remain with the home for your convenience.

Bedrooms have hardwood floors as does the hallway which has a built in linen closet.
In the split-level section of the house is the back bedroom above the garage, with three large windows allowing lots of light and a view of the gorgeously landscaped backyard. The bedroom’s only shared wall is with the bathroom, which features updated square neutral southwest style floor tile, prairie-style lite patterned casement window & stylish cabinet.

Not to be outdone, the kitchen is tastefully remodeled and smoothly and beautifully integrates the conveniences we depend on today. It’s solid wood Kraft-made cabinetry and drawers provide storage, easy access, and organization.  The galley-style plan with attractive square floor tile, granite counter tops, Frigidaire gas stove with venting hood, double-door refrigerator, dishwasher and laundry area round out the features a home chef would want.

The family room adjoins the kitchen. It could be considered a great room due to its generous size and has hardwood floors and south facing windows.  The Double French doors with prairie-style glass pattern invite you outside into the amazing backyard, especially with both doors wide open to integrate indoor with outdoor.  It’s is a peaceful setting for your family to enjoy.

Seldom do we see a backyard with nearly every feature desired by a modern family. For gardeners, there is available space with southern exposure.  If you are more into entertaining, you and your guests would absolutely love the perimeter landscaping of flowered bushes in addition to a fig, persimmon, lemon and plum tree . . . which surround a flat, grassy yard (with an automatic sprinkler system). Yet there is more! A huge cement patio with stone table and benches create a fantastic and large setting for your outdoor barbecue party with family and friends.
Attached garage has an automatic garage door and rear access to the home through the back yard. Do you need a  separate yang or man cave?  How about this:  Inside the garage is a doorway to the basement storage space.  Step-down to a small work area.
