This is a masterpiece. A work of art refined by inspirations from Europe. The owner remodeled this home to perfection, and the craftsmanship has exceeded even my expectations.
The raised flagstone walkway welcomes you to the newly designed front porch, also comprised of flagstone. Brick pillars bring a Craftsman style to the entry, accented by the natural wood-shingled siding above the porch. Walk into the living room, and admire the newly refinished wood floors, complemented by a deeply-rich stained border surrounding the passageways.
Newly opened archways create a flow of conversation between the living room and kitchen. All new stainless appliances in the kitchen: new gas range, hood, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, and in case you need more, the recently purchased washer and dryer stay with the home, too. Granite counters. Ceramic, stone and wood floors. Self-closing drawers and plenty of storage.
1009 - 7th Avenue in Land Park is a 1920 bungalow, three bedroom, with two full baths. The master-suite bath features a clawfoot tub, vanity with vessel, and a walk-in shower with three rain showerheads! The shower is big enough for ten people!
Detached garage sits back from the deep 160-foot lot past the covered parking. Huge back yard is .15 acres with fruit trees.
Best of all, the seller is willing to help pay the buyer's closing costs. FHA? No problem. VA? No problem. Clear pest report and the seller will contribute 3% toward the buyers' closing costs.
If you've always wanted to live in Land Park but felt you were priced out of the market for Land Park homes, now is your chance to own a freshly restored bungalow in this historic and tree-canopied neighborhood. A hop, skip and a jump or roll to Vic's Ice Cream, coffee shops or William Land Park.
The magic awaits. Offered at $440,000.
