Property description

Bring your family group or friends to this beautiful Ca. bungalow in the heart of Lodi and wine country. This home has been beautifully restored with antiques throughout. This craftsman style bungalow built in 1922 has hardwood floors and wood paneling and is over 2600 sq. ft. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, a large front room, formal dining room with built in leaded glass sideboard, family/game room, den/office, atrium, and reading nook. The kitchen has been completely remodeled with granite counters but still has the remarkable 1926 Fridgidaire ice box that is perfect for storing wine. The sunny kitchen and dining area is surrounded outside by camelias which are by most of the unique windows that fill the house with natural light. They also allow for beautiful views of the tree lined neighborhood and the park across the way in this prime location. You can also enjoy reading in the cozy nook or the private plant filled atrium. The huge fenced backyard offers a patio for enjoying a cup of coffee or having a group get-together for a barbeque. The patio table seats 8 and there is additional wicker furniture and a picnic table with benches for larger groups. The Merlot Bungalow sits across the street from a popular kids park and is 2 blocks away from downtown Lodi which offers many wine tasting rooms, restaurants, art galleries, shopping and theaters. In addition Lodi offers access to over 80 wineries with award winning wines for your wine tasting pleasure. Also within walking distance is Hutchins Street Square which hosts many events and weddings. You may also want to go to Lodi Lake and nature center with its beautiful park , picnic area and water activities. Near-by is historic Micke's Grove with history museum, zoo, golf, and Japanese Tea Garden. North of Lodi is the skydiving center, airport and restaurant. Just west of Lodi and Lodi Lake is historic Woodbridge.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

Why the Owner Chose Lodi, CA, USA:
We have an antique and estate sales business and had come across this house in disrepair. We had known the owner and this house for a long time and had admired it's architecture. We couldn't pass it up in such a beautiful location. It is close walking distance to everything! We have spent almost a year lovingly restoring it. We have just added another new central heat and air upstairs for the summer months. The wine industry has grown so much in Lodi, but very few places are available for rent for the wine events. We have are own connections to the wine industry and we have a vineyard of merlot grapes, thus came the name 'Merlot Bungalow'.
