Property Description

This right-sized home combines gorgeous original details with renovations done by loving owners in a perfect Cedar Park location just off Baltimore Ave. The eye-catching details start the moment you walk in the door, from the wainscoting and original tile in the vestibule to the Moorish archways and turned staircase with built-in bench. Right off the entryway is the formal sitting room with decorative mantel, large south-facing front windows and original oak floors. Continue through to the second living area with an awesome skylight that runs the length of the room, another decorative mantel flanked by built-in shelving, and an exposed brick wall. (Don’t miss the media closet conveniently located under the stairs—it could easily be used as a coat closet as well.) The bright, open dining room has slate tile floors that continue into the renovated kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances, including a GE Profile five-burner slide-in range, butcher block countertops, stainless steel backsplash with decorative glass tile accent panel, super-stylish stainless range hood, plenty of cabinet space and additional custom shelves and drawers. Upstairs, with pine flooring throughout, there’s a sunny front bedroom with a good-size closet and built-in bookcase, a middle bedroom large enough to be a true bedroom or a hobby room with built-in shelving, and a back bedroom with large windows on two walls and a walk-in closet. The hall bathroom was expanded and upgraded with radiant slate floors and features a clawfoot tub, cute black granite-topped vanity with glass vessel sink and two large windows with salvaged frosted glass shutters. The basement, with its decent ceiling height and existing half bath, could easily be finished by an owner looking for a project. In addition to the small plantable front yard, this home has a great back yard with both paved and grassy areas surrounded by planting beds. This tree-lined block is convenient to both Cedar and Clark parks, the 34 trolley line, Dock Street Brewing Company, Mariposa Co-op and the rest of the Baltimore Ave strip.
