  1. Crepe Myrtle trees and brick lined planting beds frame the front of this post-war bungalow, a home full of surprises including a finished attic and partial basement.

  3. Placing living room furniture is easy because you don't have to cross the middle of the room to get to the front door.
  4. The living room feels like a much bigger space with a handsome fireplace and lots of windows.
  5. Vintage diner booths, restored original cabinets, lots of them, and hard wood floors - all that is missing is a tabletop jukebox.
