Vintage charm, timeless style, and a great central location helped draw buyers to this spacious 3 bed, 2.5 bath Craftsman bungalow and guest house. Built in 1912, the front home features hardwood flooring, classic original woodwork, and modern upgrades including central heat and air conditioning. The spacious living room flows into the dining room, where you'll find classic built-in cabinetry, wood paneling, and a cozy window seat.
The vintage feeling continues in the remodeled kitchen with a farmhouse sink, plentiful cabinets with bin pull handles, stainless steel appliances, and granite counters. In addition to two ample sized bedrooms in the front of the house, there's a roomy master bedroom at the rear of the home that opens onto a beautiful garden deck through large french doors. The attached master bath includes spa like upgrades including dual sinks and a jetted tub.
The second home sits at the rear of the lot and features a comfortable living room, smartly designed galley kitchen and dining space. With a claw foot tub and other vintage details, the rear bungalow has the same retro style as the main house. The houses are separated by a semi private garden space, and each features its own one car garage -- plus there's a long driveway for additional parking. Shopping and dining on 4th Street Retro Row, the business district on Broadway, or the beach are only a short walk away.
