[ SOLD for $381,000 on 2/06/2017 ]   Classic 1958 “Wood Streets” mid-century 3 bedroom 1.75 rancher that has been in the same family for 40 years.  Approximately 1800 sq ft with an additional 200 sq ft bonus room. Super location on a wonderful tree-lined and quiet street.

Home needs a little updating, but what a trip to walk in and feel like you’re stepping back in time. The Brady Bunch had nothing on this house! Someone may want to retain the retro wall paper in the bathrooms or the custom cabinets in the kitchen; however, if bringing this house into the 21st Century is preferred, then there are oodles of potential! Spacious step-down living room with fireplace and beamed cathedral ceiling, formal dining room plus eat-in kitchen wish dishwasher, and open/bright bonus room are just some of the features that will get your motor running.

Three generous-sized bedrooms, each one boasting two closets, including a master suite and a total of two bathrooms. Some of the interior retro architecture is unmistakably mid-century — this house would welcome some furnishings to reflect that gone-by era. Central air/heat too.

The exterior living space, complete with two covered patios, overlooks the lovely pool with recently replaced vinyl liner and pump motor, as well as newer diving board. Hang some twinkle lights and call it an entertainer’s delight! Attached two-car garage with automatic roll-up door, and crescent shaped driveway add to the curb appeal on this super desirable street in a very quiet section of the historic “Wood Streets” neighborhood. Great first-time home or a fun updating project.
