About This Old House

Just the word “bungalow” conjures up a warm and welcoming vision of HOME. A weathered brick path leading to a deep covered porch where it’s cozy even when the rains come. Antique 6-over-1 windows with wavy glass have let dappled sunlight in for 96 years and still look as beautiful as they did on that first day. Simple lines and detail with clean symmetry from the Arts & Crafts Movement inspired the perpetually beloved Craftsman and bungalow architectural styles we still crave today. Step inside and the living room is where you’ll be. Original wood floors, painted brick fireplace with heart pine mantle flanked by multi-paned windows, smooth plaster walls – it’s a classic and a generous room for daily living and gathering with friends. A wall of built-ins including a corner cabinet in the adjacent dining room combine form and function for dishes and glassware – easy to reach, pretty to see. The kitchen farm sink with double drainboards is a coveted piece and the stove is gas (!). A New England mud room off the kitchen offers tremendous storage, laundry room and an easy way to the Zen sand garden out back. Off the living room a short hall has a bedroom on each side. Master has a walk-in closet and small en-suite bath. 2nd bedroom is adjacent to hall bath and has office alcove with a large window facing south. Measuring 25′ x 73′, the low-maintenance yard is fenced for privacy and pets. White sand instead of grass, you can rake it into patterns or use it as a base for pavers. An 8′ x 10′ shed keeps bikes and toys tidy and the gate opens to 2 parking spots on the Ocean Ave side in addition to the 1 in front. Set your sights north and you’ll find the library, kiddie carousel, DOS Coffee & Wine Bar and tantalizing desserts at Creme de Cacao. Point south and it’s a 6-block walk to downtown along San Marco Ave dotted with independent shops and eateries. The beautiful Mission grounds are an extension of your backyard. Welcome to Alegria (happiness!) – enjoy…
