Property Description

This super-solid house on a nice Cobbs Creek block has had many big-ticket items taken care of by the current homeowner: furnace, water heater, replacement windows and sewer line, which means you can move in and start building equity by updating it room by room–hopefully while preserving the original arched doorways downstairs, the pine floors upstairs and the original trim sprinkled throughout.The main floor features newer laminate flooring that runs through the good-sized living room with decorative fireplace and separate dining room with a large window and under-stair storage nook with charming original door. The rear kitchen could benefit from some reconfiguring to maximize the space, but it is beyond usable as is and features newer ceramic tile floors, maple-finish cabinets and laminate counters; it provides access to the rear paved yard. Upstairs are three true bedrooms that share a hall bath with marble threshold, original blue tub and large window, as well as a hallway linen closet. The large primary bedroom has a bay window overlooking the quiet one-way street below. The middle bedroom has a double-width closet and both this and the rear bedroom have large windows with original trim. The great location is convenient to Christy Rec Center (with pool), green space galore at Cobbs Creek Park, and Baltimore Ave.
