A substantial fence and healthy canopy of foliage can work miracles toward creating that perfect urban oasis. May I present to you Exhibit A: 1873 Lake Shore Avenue. Nestled behind the aforementioned sits this recently updated 3 bed, 1.75 bath quintessential California bungalow. Coming to market at $649,000, don’t expect it to sit quietly.
While period details such as built-ins, walnut-stained wood floors, and casement windows can be found throughout the surprisingly airy 1,004 sq/ft. home, it’s clear that care has been taken towards maintaining the home well into the future.
The kitchen may be cozy, but it comes loaded with character and usability thanks to wooden countertops, traditional white cabinetry, and an adorable, recently built breakfast nook that was created to replicate the original. The mini bay window over the kitchen sink would also be perfect for fresh herbs and mini veggie pots.
Understated details found throughout the bathrooms include: tile floors, wooden toilet seats, wainscoting, and a gorgeous claw-foot tub that welcome you to a simpler time. And let’s face it, a bathroom these days should be about taking a moment to find some peace, which this clearly offers.
The master bedroom not only only has its own private door outside, but also has one leading to a brightly-lit den, which could also be used as a third bedroom, play room or office. With excellent circulation already, one must also appreciate the sheer number of ceiling fans found throughout the home.
Regardless of what you decide to do with the den, it’s always good knowing there is another room to play with.
Though the lot isn’t huge, it is surrounded by sprawling (yet well-groomed) greenery. With a substantial porch in front and a nice sitting area out back, it offers an escape from the urban landscape found just beyond the walls.
