In this neighborhood you will find charming homes with every sort of feel from Spanish to Traditional to Tudor. One home, put on the market today, caught my eye. 817 Terraine Avenue.
Keeping with it’s original vintage footprints as it was built in 1937, this home captures the charm and character of “yesteryear”. Much of it is original, from the wood front door to the original oak flooring. Step from the brick pathway into the front door and marble stone . The spacious living room includes a wood burning fireplace, picture windows, and beautiful built-in hutches very close to the original layout when first built in the early part of the 20th century.
Three sets of French doors open to the private backyard with wood decking with more than enough room for entertaining. The family kitchen includes an island with brand new gas range, dishwasher, double ovens, & beautifully refinished cabinets. Also included is a 2 burner electric range & 2 sinks with garbage disposals.
The oversized master suite comes with a gorgeous bath and 2 walk-in closets . One bedroom functions as a library/office with wainscot, built-in book shelves & a picture window over-looking the lovely landscaped front yard.
Abundant storage includes built-in, walk-in closes and extra large 2-car garage.
