Situated high above the street, 2461 Park Blvd is a spacious, light-filled home that has been in the same family for 55 years. A flight of stairs takes you up to the sitting porch where you step through the original wood and leaded glass door into a proper foyer. Ample coat closet and original detailing welcomes you.

The formal living room has a unique, 5-sided bay window. Sunshine floods this space. The wide baseboards, decorative fireplace, hardwood floors, recessed ceiling, built-in shelving and sconce lighting make this delightful room even more charming.

Flow into the adjacent dining room where a large window overlooks the garden on the side of the house. This bright room has recently refinished hardwood floors, vintage woodwork and easy access to the kitchen.

In the kitchen, updated several years ago, you’ll find a breakfast nook and many upgrades: gas stove, granite countertops, stainless steel sink, along with plenty of cabinet space. Back door leads outside and to the basement where you will find the laundry area, compete with full-sized washer and dryer, plus utility sink.

Three bedrooms are located down the hall. All of them are carpeted and have big closets. Two of the bedrooms have doors to the rear garden. The full bathroom boasts original tilework – in great condition and in retro colors. There is a pedestal sink, tiled floor, linen closet and shower-over-tub.

Outside you’ll find a landscaped side yard, plus a rear garden. The one car garage has been recently sheet rocked and painted and is equipped with an automatic door opener. In the basement, there’s a water heater, newer furnace and plenty of storage space.
