A GREAT REFUGE
We purchased this house in 1987 when we were expecting our first born. We wanted to stay in the neighborhood because of all the local attractions and the family style of its residents.
Seeing the house for the first time, we fell in love with the boxed-beam ceilings and the french doors opening to the patio. The rest was history.
We did a simple remodel of the basement when we had teenagers so that they had a little more private space. I now live in very simple style in that basement, and so I am around periodically to work in the yard and am close by if there are any questions. There is also a washer-dryer available in a common area in the basement.
Our dining room serves well for small gatherings of 8-10, and when the weather is warm this room opens onto the patio through the French Doors.
The kitchen has dark cherry cabinets and all new appliances, and comes with all the basics for cooking and presenting a great meal for a small group. Next to the kitchen is a small half bath.
Upstairs we have three bedrooms, a small family room, and a full bath. The view deck facing North is accessed from the Master bedroom and makes the master itself a great retreat from the din of a larger group in the house. The other bedrooms look South over the secluded patio in back. From the back bedrooms one can also see the small path that meanders up from the patio through the garden to our detached garage facing south on the street behind us (54th). The garage can park two, but I am using one space.
