[ SOLD for $335,000 ] “Wood Streets Neighborhood” two-story stucco Tudor Revival has been in the same family for many years! Built in 1931, this home is much larger than it appears! There are a total of 6 bedrooms (4 downstairs, 2 upstairs) and 3 bathrooms (2 downstairs, 1 upstairs). One of the bedrooms downstairs is smaller than the others, but it does have a closet and is located between a bathroom and and one of the bedrooms, so it could be used as a child’s room, nursery, office, den or work-out room.
Original 1931 features include wood casement windows, many original fixtures, skeleton-key door locks, some coved ceilings, original hardwood floors under carpeting, and extra high ceiling in living room. Modern amenities include central air conditioning/heat, whole house fan, indoor laundry, and alarm system.
Once you walk through the little swinging gates onto the front covered patio, you will feel a sense of peace and “home”. The original front door opens into the large living room with high ceiling, fireplace, and picture window perfect for displaying holiday decorations. You’ll then wind your way into the large formal dining room with coved ceiling overlooking the front patio. Three of the downstairs bedrooms are large and each one has a walk-in closet (two have built-in dressers). The square footage downstairs is approximately 1800 square feet, with an additional 200+ upstairs.
All the extra storage space throughout this house will boggle your mind, including the attic space and very large walk-in closet upstairs. Most of the closets have built-in dressers! There is also a cedar-lined closet in the downstairs hallway. The kitchen is open and airy with an antique stove, tile counter tops, pull-out shelves, and an attached breakfast nook with double doors that open onto the lovely front patio.
Separate indoor laundry room with stairway to the upstairs which boasts two bedrooms, one of which is very large with a regular closet with sliding doors, built-in cabinetry, plus a walk-in closet. There is also a bathroom and a kitchenette upstairs as well; great for guests that plan on staying a while, or perfect for an independent college student.
The backyard is low maintenance with a lovely covered deck with built-in seating perfect for entertaining many friends. There is also access to a basement under the deck which houses the furnace and is perfect for storing holiday decorations and/or use as a wine cellar. Most of the backyard is inlaid brick, so you won’t need a lawnmower. There is a rose garden, citrus trees, and year-round flowering plants.
To round out this wonderful value-of-a-home, you’ll enjoy the 2-car garage with automatic door and aesthetically-pleasing driveway with inlaid brick. Attached to the back of the garage is another room which could be used as storage, potting shed or dark room, and with a bit of ingenuity and a contractor, you could possibly turn it into a guest quarters. Add to the mix, lovely neighbors on one of the most desired streets in the Wood Streets neighborhood, and you’ll be the envy of all your friends!
