SUNNY AND SWEET
This 1919 Craftsman bungalow set on a sweet street in Havenscourt has all the elements - beginning with a simply landscaped front yard with camellia, lavender, succulents and other drought-resistant plants, and a large front porch, creating an inviting and welcoming street presence.
Inside, maple hardwood floors, coved ceilings, built-in cabinets, picture rails and other architectural details are just some of this home's highlights. Opening into the dining room/entrance area, the room is bright and airy, with a traditional Craftsman buffet and cabinetry, and a cozy brick fireplace. Off the dining room is the kitchen, and across from it is the living room, a large and peaceful room with lots of windows.
Beyond the kitchen is a family room with a laundry space, and access to the expansive back yard. A nice guest room/office overlooks the garden, and has a graceful wall of windows that frame the scenery. Another bedroom is next door and a full bathroom nearby. There are lots of nooks with built-in storage that are a charming reminder of another era.
Upstairs is another bedroom, with lots of windows, a nice deep closet and great light from two directions. A WC is in the hallway. This dreamy, light-filled room is the perfect private retreat.
The large, deep back yard has been recently transformed into a lush lawn, complete with a new timed irrigation system. A patio space is ideal for backyard entertaining, or just as a quiet place for taking in the big-sky view. A roomy garden shed and U-shaped raised beds for a potager hint at the gardening potential. There is a lot of space to play with for a gardener, and a lot of space to play in for the younger set.
The Havenscourt neighborhood is appreciated as an emerging area with walkability, diversity and a welcoming and active community. Easy access to Highways 880 and 580 are a bonus for commuters.
