Craftsman bungalow in the Heart of Temescal!

This mostly original bungalow has outstanding curb appeal, and is waiting for you to make it your own!

Cute 2BD/1BA home with original details throughout. Classic foyer offers a separation of space before entering into the living spaces. The light-filled front room has a decorative brick fireplace flanked by built-in shelving with glass doors. Nicely-sized windows are situated on either side of the fireplace, allowing plenty of sunshine to filter into the room. The stunning woodwork, scalloped ceiling and hardwood floors create a desirable and elegant feel.

The adjoining formal dining room is drenched with sunlight and features a vintage built-in china cabinet. Large enough for a table-for-six, this room may end-up being the center of entertainment in your new home – the heart of the home where friends and family will gather.

The bright, cheerful kitchen has the desirable Wedgewood stove we’d all love to cook on and original tilework. The separate breakfast nook is a quaint space with a wall of cabinetry and a big, sun-filled window. On the opposite end of the kitchen, find a laundry room with washer, dryer and a single door with access to the backyard.

Two bedrooms have been freshly painted and feature refinished hardwood floors, diamond doorknobs, big windows and ample closets. The bathroom is steps away with a shower over tub and vintage tilework. A hallway linen closet adds extra storage.

The private, fenced back yard includes a small shade tree, patio and Hydrangea bushes. The landscaping has been refreshed with new mulch. The wood-sided, one-car garage is likely a spot for a workshop, art studio or storage. In addition, there is a small shed, off-street parking on the driveway and a crawl space for storage. Plus, newer water heater (2018,) furnace (2016) and air conditioning (2018).
