This classically handsome Craftsman home is immediately exceptional.
Located at 2568 Humboldt Avenue, It has been well cared for, and carefully updated-from the crisp front and side gardens, through the home's interior, and on to an outstanding back yard.
It features designer landscaping, front and back, with 30 plus rare succulents, planters, and fruit trees, and is fully fenced for privacy.
It offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in a generous 1185 sq. ft. of living space, and is located only minutes from both the busy and popular Dimond and Laurel shopping districts.
Certainly one of the most surprising and remarkable features of the house is the size of this very expansive back yard that provides multiple sites for parties, barbecues, gardening, and relaxation.
Worthy of special attention are the raised garden beds, the lush green grass, and the newly built gazebo, which will be discussed at closing. A large detached garage is seen at the rear of the scene.
A distinctive and dramatic peaked roof rises above a gently curved entry arch, welcoming guests into the residence.
As with many Craftsman homes, this one has a private front porch that is perfect for relaxation, and chatting with guests.
As one enters the house, one becomes aware of just some of the updating that has taken place that includes glowing hardwood floors and soft supplemental overhead lighting, The fireplace is generous in size, with a large mantel for displaying art and collectibles.
There is an easy flow from one room to another that allows guests and residents to move comfortably from the front room to the dining area and kitchen, and on out to the back yard.
A reverse perspective illustrates just four of the many windows throughout this central living space that invite in light and cheer to an already engaging scene.
This modern, updated kitchen has to be one of the most exceptional assets of this house. A great deal of effort has been devoted to designing this handsome space.
White tile backsplashes, and bright stone counters, combine with spacious cabinets at every level to create an effective and appealing workspace. Updated amenities include a dishwasher, refrigerator, disposal, gas range cooktop, and microwave.
A tall sliding glass door opens out onto an inviting back deck with tables and seating for outdoor dining, and providing a perfect flow of traffic from one location to another.
Off the living room to the right, is the primary bedroom. It is spacious, and easily accommodates this king sized bed, with room remaining for a selection of additional furniture. To add to its appeal, It has large picture windows with views to the garden.
Just steps away from the primary bedroom is this gleaming en suite primary bathroom that once again reflects the investment of time and effort that has been made to enhance this pleasant home.
Close by the primary bedroom are the other two additional bedrooms. The second largest, seen above, continues the theme of capturing cheerful sunlight through the use of generously sized window panes, as seen here.
If three bedrooms are not required, this third bedroom could easily become an office, study, or perhaps a playroom, depending on need.
A cheerful second bathroom, seen here, is located between, and shared by, the two bedrooms seen above.
Returning once again to the soothing rear yard, it becomes obvious that it is a truly flexible living space, and is uniquely highlighted with the newly built gazebo seen in the center of the picture.
The evening yard takes on a new atmosphere with the addition of the magical lights that are suspended above the gazebo and around the garden and porch.
The gazebo itself is easily the heart of the entire expanse, and is sealed, and custom powered for lights, speakers and outlets.
