Property Description

This right-size home in a great University City location is the definition of move-in ready. The house was completely renovated in 2008, and with some nice recent updates by the current owners it has everything a homebuyer could ask for: nice block, all the right upgrades and quality construction with just the right touch of original charm. From the front yard with newly planted maple tree and paved area great for bike storage, enter through the enclosed porch into the bright living room with high ceilings, crown molding, recessed lighting and hardwood floors that continue into the large dining room, which leads into the sunny L-shaped kitchen with stainless steel gas range, granite countertops, deep stainless steel sink and stylish porcelain tile floors. Past the kitchen is a large mudroom with a powder room with granite-topped vanity and separate laundry area. The second floor has brand-new neutral carpet throughout. The front and back bedrooms are comparable in size so either could be used as a master; both have nice natural light and good closet space. There’s also a middle room that, while big enough to be a true bedroom, has a deceptively large closet and would make a great dressing room. The recently renovated hall bath has wood grain tile flooring, wall and shower surround with glass tile inlay, whirlpool tub and cute granite-topped vanity with good storage. This house also features central air, a nice-sized backyard with deck and separate garden area and a wireless alarm system—and the basement has good ceiling height and is plumbed for a toilet so there’s great potential to transform it into additional living space down the road. Baltimore Ave is only a few blocks away, so places like Mariposa Food Co-op, Dock Street Brewery, Cedar Park Cafe, VIX Emporium, Gold Standard Cafe and Satellite Coffee—not to mention the 34 trolley line—are all super-convenient.
