Property Description

A true one-of-a-kind home. This thoughtfully restored stunning Craftsman Bungalow features all the charm of the old world, with state-of-the-art conveniences.

Host your friends and family on the beautiful front porch complete with a lovely swing. As you enter the home, you will be impressed by the charming 1920’s features such as the historic hardwood floors, laid in the log cabin design, crown moldings, the beautifully restored wood burning, gas ready fireplace that has hidden outlets in the mantle and built-ins designed for art & bookcases with Seating and Hidden Storage. Notice the Dining Room boasts Art Displays with adjustable shelving, for that perfect space for your art. Next is a masterpiece of a kitchen featuring a custom granite island with 4 bar stools that convey with the home, and a built-in storage banquette, set for lounging.
