A large wrap-around porch overlooks a quiet cul-de-sac that is part of the Historic Oakwood neighborhood. The 12' x 12' trellis covered back porch, above, overlooks the fenced yard and is accessible from the driveway.


Soaring ceilings, archways, stained glass accent windows, plant shelves, display niches reflect the craftsmanship of Oakwood neighbor and builder Jay Beaman.


Universal Design features include the raised fireplace with gas logs and the practical placement of door handles, electrical outlets and plumbing fixtures. The hardwood floors were added and the interior repainted in 2004, the exterior in 2006.


The bright kitchen opens to the back porch. Accessible features include special doors and snap-out cabinet fronts that provide roll-under knee space.


The spacious master bath has a roll-in shower with dual shower heads, garden tub, glass block accents, dual pedestal sinks and pocket door. The master bedroom has vaulted ceiling, hardwood floors and a large roll-in closet.


The middle bedroom here opens to the large 2nd bathroom that is also Universal Design. The south-facing front bedroom, currently being used as an office, overlooks the cul-de-sac.
