Circa 1923 Craftsman bungalow home in the Leinkauf Historic District! Fresh exterior paint and inside paint- make this home your own. Seller put in new plumbing fixtures and new lighting fixtures throughout. The previous seller redid the electrical/plumbing, added a new roof about 12 years ago, and re-worked all windows including re-weighting them. Fridge, gas stove to remain. Washer/dryer can stay with good offer. Great location close to downtown (1.4 miles), 0.3 miles to the Crawford Park Recreation Center (tennis courts, dog park, playground). Enjoy entertaining in your historic home with lots of Arts & Crafts touches like the original elaborate glass cabinetry in the kitchen and adorable breakfast room. A beautiful wrap around porch awaits off the main living area 12.5 x 12.5 , which works well as the seller’s dining room. There is the original mantle area with a working gas fireplace and built in bookcases. The original 14 x 13 dining room is being used as a living room off the kitchen/breakfast room area. The porch area features a huge 15 x 11.5 seating area to enjoy coffee or entertaining friends and the beautiful french door opens for easy access to the porch. This is a cozy 2 bedroom with 1 large bath, but there are two great added value features: 1.) an enclosed 9 X 9 back porch with gorgeous historic windows that could be a 3rd bedroom/office space off the hallway. It could make a wonderful added 2nd bathroom, too, off the second bedroom. 2.) Permanent walk up stairs to a very large unfinished attic space for either extra storage or add some living space/bathroom up here. This area has two large spaces up here that are 19 x 12 and 17 x 14 each with original windows already in place for lighting. Downstairs, each bedroom is large off a large hallway where the large bathroom is. Bedroom 1 is 14 x 13 and the bedroom at the back is 14 x 13. One bedroom has a cedar walk in closet that is 7.5 x 3.5 and original 1920s sconces . Down the hall is the back mudroom 14 x 6 with washer/dryer. This area has a lot of space that could be reconfigured for the kitchen of your dreams but the current charming kitchen is more than ample in this precious jewel of a home. According to old records, it was originally built by Paul Ray who was an engineer with what is now the Corp of Engineers, along with his wife, Carrie. The Leinkauf historic district has two fun, optional neighborhood groups: The Leinkauf Historic District Neighborhood Association and The Porch Society of Leinkauf which hosts fun brunches and social events with fellow neighbors. Come be a part of this fun historic area!
