On a quiet brick street in the heart of historic old northeast sits this charming bungalow. Not so little at 1,785 square feet. Plus, the attached garage is enhanced with cabinetry and laundry sink. Might make a good hobby room.
Faux white-washed planks in living and dining room look like shiplap. Fireplace surround refinished in light drift wood tones. Hand painted ceiling medallions rich with color give the bungalow an elegant beach cottage feel. Fireplace is gas. No need to haul in wood. Just flick the button.
Two bedrooms are off the living room. The smaller one has many useful built-ins including the bed. The second one can be opened onto the front porch to let in light and breezes. Probably why many use it as an office. The bathroom has recently been rehabbed to look like a vintage bath. Glass tiles in shades of blue, white bead board walls and a tiffany-style light fixture give it a coastal look. The old claw foot tub is not old. It is even better. Pedestal sink has lots of room for towels and bathroom stuff.
Kitchen is large enough for a cooking demo. Plenty of storage in cabinets with a peninsula that can be used for cooking or eating. Stainless gas range with cooktop is very impressive. Chef quality. Nearby is a separate walk-in pantry with slatted wood shelving. You could put a bread maker, Cuisinart and many small kitchen appliances in it including cans and other food storage.
With open floor plan, kitchen looks into the family room. Very sunny as it faces east with a row of windows. Back door leads to garden area.
The master bedroom has an ensuite bath and two closets. One a walk in closet. Two sinks in bathroom separated by tall cabinetry allow two to use the bathroom at once. Master shower is a work of art. Lots of controls and pressure adjustments. Just off the master bedroom is a small deck. Good place for a cup of coffee in the morning.
This home has a full laundry room. Extra counter space. One guest even put his second computer in there.
As a bonus, the attic, accessible by drop down ladder is planked. Even a tall person can stand in it. Great storage.
Ground orchids in purple and yellow thrive in the yard as well as pink tea roses. Not a big yard, but big enough for table and chairs in back. Six foot fence gives extra privacy.
For a bungalow, this one is big, but on the outside it retains the charming cottage look. A winning combination.
