Property Description

The flowers...the birds...the trees. This house is a true retreat. Sit on your three season front porch and watch the world go by. You would think a landscape architect lives here. Gorgeous deep lot just one block from award winning Lincoln School and a hop skip and a jump to Roosevelt Middle School. This home features 4 bedrooms and 1.1 baths. You walk into the living with hardwood floors, leaded glass windows and a fireplace and immediately want to sit down and open a book. You'll love the separate dining room for entertaining. It opens to the sunroom with terra cotta floors and french doors to the back deck. When you look into the back yard you'll feel like you're in the botanical gardens. There is a pass through from the eclectic kitchen to the sunroom. Pass the lemonade and charcuterie board please. The second floor has two master sized bedrooms. You could easily take the smaller fourth bedroom and turn it into a master bath. The attic is insulated. There is a newer garage with cement driveway and as an added bonus...a backup generator. Showings begin Sunday at the open 11-1p.m. There is a list of improvements under additional information, but here are the major ones...new water heater 2017, roof re-shingled 2nd layer - 2019, boiler replaced 2019, new 100 amp electrical panel w/new service drop 2020, entire a/c system replaced 2021. And just a fun fact you'll have the distinction of living in the home that the street was named after...look at the street sign on the southwest corner of Park and Oak. It was renamed "Honorary Ron Sherman Way".
