A deep driveway offers plenty of off-street tandem parking and a security gate to the backyard and the garage.
Inside, a formal foyer welcomes visitors and separates the living and dining rooms. The large, elegant living room was designed for family and friends to gather, and is filled with Craftsman features including wainscoting, bay windows, and a handsome oak floor that continues throughout the home. A gas fireplace with a brick surround and a traditional white mantel sits between built-in bookcases, and a nine-foot ceiling accentuates the abundant sunlight that fills the room. The formal dining room provides another welcoming space, and is spacious enough for large gatherings while intimate enough for simple family meals.

The expansive eat-in kitchen behind the dining room is more than spacious enough to create a custom kitchen to suit any need! An exceptionally large laundry room next to the kitchen offers an additional creative design opportunity, while a full bathroom is conveniently located behind the laundry room and features a walk-in shower.
The home's four bedrooms are situated to the left of the living room, dining room and kitchen. The front two bedrooms are similar in size and amenities, and are both certainly large enough to be a primary bedroom. A beautifully updated bathroom connects the two bedrooms, and has a deep tub/shower combination, a linen closet and a vanity topped with Carrara marble. Two additional generously-sized bedrooms feature plenty of natural light and large closets. The back bedroom has views of the pretty backyard, and sits across the hall from the rear bathroom.
The sweet backyard is delightful! A patio, rose bushes, a lush green lawn, citrus trees and native grasses grace this fenced, tranquil space. A finished 504-square-foot garage can be converted into a home office or used as flex space, and gated access from the driveway offers security as well as privacy.
