Big, bright spaces. Refinished hardwood floors sparkle in the spacious 16x12 ft living room. The 21 ft long eat-in kitchen is a versatile space that can serve as a breakfast or dining area with a 1950’s moveable half-round counter. The polished cabinets are handsome & sturdy. The vinyl floor is new. The large hall is truly central, linking the 2 bedrooms & the modern tile bath with the rest of the house. Pull down stairs give access to attic storage. See floorplan.



A level area and carport at the top of the sloping driveway provide con-venient side door access to the kitchen. Add a full front porch and you can enjoy the front yard that has a commanding view of your block.

The south facing backyard is partially fenced with lots of room for a garden, volley ball or whatever. Please note that these less than flattering backyard pictures were just taken in the post-drought early spring. The metal awnings evoke the period shown in the movie “The Tin Man”. (Google it.) They can easily be removed, ditto the storage shed and carport in back.
