[ SOLD for $349,900 on 8/26/2016 ]  A quintessential “Wood Streets” cottage!! Built in 1923, this two bedroom, two bathroom home with 1,232 square feet living space just doesn’t get any cuter!

Maintaining the Turn of the Century charm and built-ins, you’ll also enjoy modern amenities such as central air/heat, indoor laundry, ceiling fans, new tile flooring in both bathrooms, and stone kitchen counter top.

In addition to the gorgeous original hardwood floors flowing throughout this cottage, there’s a gas and wood-burning fireplace, built-in book shelves and even a built-in letter-writing desk, as well as sconce lighting and French doors to a charming side patio. Brand new interior and exterior paint too!

The lot size is a generous 8,910 sq ft with three charming patios, mature shade trees, automatic irrigation, and block wall on one side of the yard, with a cement fence on the other (yes, very unique — don’t forget to knock on it, as it’s definitely not wood). Our favorite is the “beachy” patio attached to the garage which just has a beachy fun feel to it because of the whimsical picket fence and what looks like beach grass adjacent to the wood deck.

And finally, don’t forget the 1-car detached garage complete with work bench and extra parking spot off the alley. This cutie pie is going to sell faster than you can say Rumpelstiltskin.
