Just appraised at $552,000! Nestled high up in the foothills of Crescenta Valley sits this sweet bungalow, welcoming you with pale yellow tea roses in the professionally landscaped front yard. The remodeled home is in pristine new condition, virtually rebuilt in 2009, and offers potential for expansion with its sizeable lot. Walk through the charming yellow door to the living room with a bay window looking over the expansive front lawn and young shade tree. The brick hearth and wood burning fireplace are enhanced by the walnut stained engineered hardwood floors and crown and baseboard molding found throughout the house. The open floor plan leads you to the cozy dining room and gourmet kitchen, featuring custom wood cabinetry, recessed lighting, stainless steel Kenmore/GE appliances, a double sink, a breakfast bar, a stack washer/dryer, and champagne granite countertops. Off the hallway are the three bedrooms featuring sizable closets. The third bedroom has plenty of light, access to the backyard and is currently used as a home office. The full bathroom has Travertine-like tile, a farmhouse sink with pump faucet, and a gorgeous dark wood stained wall cabinet. The back door of the kitchen opens to the fully fenced and private backyard with a sparkling swimming pool (replastered in 2009), an ample concrete deck and additional grassy area for play. There are automatic sprinklers in both the front and back yards and a sizeable detached garage with automatic garage door added in 2009, complete with extra storage. The interior and exterior of the home were both painted in 2009. Also installed last year were double pane, vinyl windows, a 200 amp main electric panel, central a/c and forced air heat. The current owners have plans for a 200 square foot expansion with agreement from the city that are part of the sale. The home sits in the Crescenta Highlands neighborhood with award winning La Crescenta schools, including Dunsmore Elementary (California Distinguished School), and National Blue Ribbon Schools Rosemont Middle School and Crescenta Valley High. Close to shopping, parks, the library, and freeway access, this home combines the convenience of urban living with the charm of a rural community.
