Listing information updated 9/20/2023 at 9:23am
Spacious, sprawling, sun-drenched bungalow on a huge lot beckons! Enter into a welcoming, roomy foyer with a handy coat closet, and through to the bright and large living room showcasing a wall of windows with French doors that lead to the sizeable front porch, and a gracious fireplace with built-ins flanked by original stained glass windows. The adjoining spacious dining room boasts bay windows and can easily host your biggest holiday gatherings. Cooking your meals will be a delight in the smartly designed, updated kitchen featuring miles of classic butcher block countertops; loads of quality white cabinetry; a huge, deep, undermount sink; all stainless appliances; a large eat-at island; a handy garden window; deep pantry and a generous eat-in area with a charming exposed brick wall. A big mudroom at the rear of the house boasts bonus space for a play or work area and has sliding doors to the deck for easy alfresco grilling and dining. Two bedrooms (both with big closets) and a convenient full bath round out this level and make it flexible for easy living or hosting visitors. When you're ready to retire, head upstairs to the massive, bright, primary bedroom with a sitting area, skylights and a huge walk in closet. (This large space could be reimagined to add an ensuite bath or even another bedroom!) Another generous bedroom and a spacious, bright, clean, updated full bath complete this level. The high and dry basement spans the full footprint of the house and offers additional living space! Cozy up for game or movie night in the huge, bright, carpeted family room with space for multiple conversation areas. The extra-large bedroom with its own ensuite spa-like full bath (with heated floors!) and huge, organized, walk-in closet is a teenager or in-law's delight. The tall, bright, clean laundry room is big enough for additional storage as well an exercise area (treadmill-friendly ceiling height!), and a large storage space at the front of the basement completes this level. Outside you'll find a deep fenced yard with multiple patio areas for entertaining or play, lovely mature trees and thoughtful plantings (many natives and edibles!); a 2-car garage (brand-new in 2020) plus additional 2 parking spaces. This home truly has it all in a fantastic location on a welcoming, friendly block that's close to schools, shopping, coffee, parks, schools, pool, farmers' market, the El, easy drive to the expressway and so much more. This is the one you've been waiting for - all you have to do is unpack - welcome home!
