This character-rich 1926 Spanish Colonial Revival bungalow, situated in the Historic Landmark District of Garfield Heights, was one of 12 homes developed by the Fay and Fay brothers on their namesake private cul-de-sac. After admiring the charming curb appeal of its refined front yard, Spanish roof tiles and pleasing gable roof lines, step onto the inviting front porch and through the arched doorway into the foyer with tiled floors and spacious cloak closet. The expansive open floor plan of the living and dining areas offers an abundance of natural light, coved ceilings and hardwood floors under the recently installed wall-to-wall carpeting. The living room features a brick fireplace, period sconces, and side opening original windows. The appeal of the adjacent dining room is augmented by wainscoting, large windows and a ceiling fan. Off the dining room is an informal dining area plus a bonus room with tiled floors that will make a great office. The kitchen was remodeled in 2010 with ceramic floor tiles, refaced cabinetry, water filtration system, double sink, tile counters and backsplash, dishwasher, ceiling fan, vintage ventilated pantry, recessed lights, and new cabinet hardware installed 2012. There’s a laundry room right next to the kitchen with a backdoor leading to the side yard. Off the hallway are the bedrooms and a full bathroom. Each ample-sized bedroom has large windows, crown and base molding, and good-sized closets. The bathroom was updated in 2010 with earth-tone tile, a rainforest shower head/ wand over the bathtub, new lighting and a built-in linen closet with dresser drawers. The private, fully enclosed back patio with gas bbq can be accessed through the French Door in the bonus room. There’s also an enclosed side yard that would make an ideal garden. Finally, a one car detached garage offers plenty of space for storage. The home includes copper plumbing, upgraded electricity with 200 amp main panel, tankless water heater, central air/heat, new curtains, recently painted exterior and interior, and automatic sprinklers. Offering the charm of a character home with comforts of updated modern convenience, this historic treasure tucked near the end of a quiet private lane is truly a one of a kind home.
