SO MUCH CHARM in this cozy, renovated, 1929-built Cape Cod! You'll be hard-pressed to find THIS MUCH affordable CUTENESS AND CHARM in town, close to everything, AND on a large quarter-acre lot to enjoy in SO many ways! (Plus, there's no HOA or Architectural Review Board to please!) PART of this sweet home's charm STARTS outside with the new metal roof and gutters (2020), and new front porch railings (2022). Curb appeal was vastly improved with the addition of a gravel parking area (better drainage, rm for multiple vehicles) and walkway, removal of 4 mature trees too close to the house, and a French drain installed on the driveway side of the house with tie-ins to the gutter downspouts. Past the welcoming front porch, you'll enter into a large, open, great room (LR/DR) with lovely, original pine floors. You'll love all the natural light, and probably won't even notice the whole house custom cordless blinds. Attractive neutral colors lend to easily picturing your own furnishings here! Just to the right of the entrance is a main floor bedroom - so hard to find in many 2-story homes; the freestanding closet rack conveys. (And there's not a closet in the house it would fit in!) The room's tiny closet is pure 1929. Fully updated in 2019, the main floor bath has ceramic tile flooring and a spacious shower! Ceramic tile continues into the super cute & functional kitchen, with all stainless appliances (new dishwasher installed in 2021), natural gas cooking, soft close upper cabinets featuring glass shelves & glass fronts (2022), large pantry with barn door, cute new raw edge floating shelves (2022), a gorgeous copper sink, and granite counters. Just off the kitchen is a wonderful little nook, presently set up as a serving station - but maybe YOUR coffee bar, wine bar, or breakfast nook?! A newer stackable washer/dryer (2021) is found behind new bi-fold doors, where clever storage space presently contains grab-and-go supplies for s'mores at the fire pit! The rear door allows access to your yard; handrail was recently installed to ensure safety. You won't see it in the 3-D Tour, but if you take a peek down the stairs between the kitchen and great room, you'll find the newer hot water heater & HVAC system (both installed in 2019; regular spring & fall cleaning of HVAC system each yr) in a dirt floor cellar with crawl space. (Crawl space is most easily accessible outside, with 2 access points.) Back through the house and to the stairs, and ... are those TILES? No (got me, too!). But they're cleverly papered to look like tiles and only add to the home's uniqueness! Upstairs, the original wood floors are carpeted (2019). To the right of the stairs is the smaller of the 3 bedrooms. If an extra bedroom, office, or studio isn't needed, this would make a great space for (you guessed it, you clothes and shoe hounds!) a CLOSET! But it's otherwise a nice room for a home office, twin bedroom, or craft room. The owner's bedroom, to the left of the stairs, is plenty roomy, well-lit, and has several small closets/cubbies for storage. You saw this was a Cape Cod, right? So there WILL be eaves. In case you forgot, you WILL remember as soon as you enter the owner's en suite bathroom! But the prize waiting is the large, awesome custom shower! After you've ooh-ed and ahh-ed over all the cuteness, you'll be glad to find out that the updates and improvements weren't all cosmetic. The current owner had safety & convenience in mind when replacing the entire house's outlets & wiring, installed an outdoor outlet & a whole house transformer. And you can water your vegetation & wash your car from that new outdoor spigot! It's a 93-year old house, so ideal Buyers will love & appreciate the work that goes with them. Super convenient location just a quick stroll to the Greenway & dog park, Old Town with its Farmers Market, shops, restaurants, events, gov't services, plus area shopping, schools, medical facilities & MORE! Come see if we can make this YOUR home!
