Under contract-accepting backup offers. ***Back on the market! Initial buyers financing fell through.This home isn't for everyone, but to someone, it will be everything. We proudly present this newly restored 1928 bungalow. It has been painted in a traditional craftsman color scheme and features a front porch and porte cochre lit by period style lighting. Many original materials have been preserved whenever possible to retain the vintage feel of the home. These include windows, doors, built-ins, plaster walls and millwork.Walking across the friendly front porch and through the original front door, you enter a living room featuring built-in bookcases and a brick fireplace (currently not operational). The floors have been updated with engineered hardwood oak floors. The living room flows into the dining room and then into the kitchen, with arches and cased openings to help divide the spaces. The lighting throughout the home was thoughtfully selected to live in each space. The kitchen features tongue and groove wood ceilings, solid wood soft-close cabinetry, Italian Carrara marble countertops, traditional beadboard backsplash and a fluted apron-front sink. One of our favorite parts of this kitchen are the historical upper cabinets and a built-in pantry original to the home! The desirable unlacquered brass hardware adorning the cabinets will gradually develop a natural patina over time building even more character. (Anyone watch "For the Love of Kitchens"? I mean, wow, this is the type they use. And that kitchen faucet - not in the budget - but in it went anyway!) Also, note the large pantry and a nook with open shelving that could be used as a coffee or cocktail bar. Maybe both. An absolutely gorgeous wood island (conveys with the property) and brand new stainless steel appliances with a slide-in range complete the space. The primary suite includes two closets and a huge bathroom complete with vintage style hexagonal floor tile, clawfoot tub with shower enclosure, dual vanity with a marble countertop and a beautiful feature wall featuring Rifle Paper Co. timelessly floral wallpaper. One of the two guest rooms is adjacent to the second bathroom. Again with vintage style hexagonal floor tile, classic subway on the walls, an iconic pedestal sink and more Rifle Paper Co. wallpaper featured on the walls. The additional bedroom in the back of the home would also make a great office space. We chose to preserve the funky multicolored glass window as it just seemed to fit. The backyard features a quaint courtyard finished with patio string lights. It's a simply perfect spot to hang out and enjoy a glass of wine. As much as we have put into this home, it is not done. It needs someone to move in and live. Add their own touches. Breathe their own life into its walls. Further its 95 year long journey even longer. Continue its story. And yours.
