This versatile and revitalized Craftsman DUPLEX welcomes you with fresh paint and an inviting front porch. The spacious interior has combined living room and kitchen, two bedrooms and a master suite on main level. Downstairs, the upgraded basement features a bedroom and bonus room.

Open living room and kitchen combine with updated wood and slate tile floors. Gorgeous new cabinets and counters that feature a luxurious, thick-slabbed stone surface. Stainless steel appliances include a double sink, gas stove, fridge and dishwasher. Adjoining full bath is newer with elegant, modern tile work and vanity with granite counter top.

Private master bedroom has wood floors, original baseboards and a large, mirrored closet. The master bathroom is elegant with frameless glassed-in shower, marble topped counter and custom tile work.

Nicely sized laundry room includes ample cupboard space/pantry and a counter for folding clothes. Access to the lower level here, as well as to the backyard. Downstairs has been built-out with two rooms, a bedroom and extra room that could act as an office or media cave. In addition, throughout the home you will find bull-nosed wall detailing, new paint and flooring and recessed lighting.

The attached, but separate second unit has a remodeled eat-in kitchen with new stainless steel appliances. A charming arched doorway frames the sunny breakfast nook. New cabinets, appliances, attractive marble counters and a new tile backsplash make the whole space feel refreshing. In the kitchen, there is a window box greenhouse – great for herbs or flowers and a door with direct access to the backyard.

The cozy living room in the second unit has wood floors, a large window and big coat closet. Down the hall is a good-sized bedroom with a light-filled window. The newer bathroom features subway tiled backsplash and shower over tub. More storage is found in the hallway closet.

Large, south east facing backyard teeming with potential. Fenced with mature trees and a ton of space. Off-street parking, plus room to expand.
