Nestled on a quiet street adjacent to Chapman Woods sits this traditional home bursting with the charm of its 1940 construction. The peaceful front porch is shaded by a majestic magnolia and overlooks the lush Eaton Blanche Park and green belt across the street. The large, flat, and fully enclosed backyard has both a covered patio and pergola area for outdoor entertaining. The charming ambiance continues throughout the home with its hardwood floors, crown and base molding, built-in shelves and cabinets, double hung sash windows, fresh paint, ceramic tile bathrooms and built-in clothes hampers. The home is full of vintage details such as a covered laundry tub, a hide-away ironing board, and a vegetable pantry with slatted shelves to allow air circulation. Off the formal entry is the spacious living room with abundant windows, built-in bookcase and a large inviting fireplace with traditional wood mantel. The formal dining room features a built-in china cabinet, wainscoting, and a new chandelier. The kitchen has a new linoleum tile floor, a breakfast nook with corner windows, wood cabinetry, and a spacious laundry room and pantry. The large California basement is accessed from the hallway and could be transformed into a great wine cellar. Down the hall you’ll find the three sizeable bedrooms with plenty of closet space and a large full bathroom with ceramic tile. One bedroom also has its own adjacent bathroom with shower. Two of the bedrooms have direct access to the back patio overlooking the expansive grassy area with a lemon tree and a stately avocado tree. The foundation has been retrofitted, the roof is concrete tile, and the 2-car extra deep detached garage features an automatic door. Located just north of prestigious San Pasqual Street, this home is convenient to shopping, freeway access and the Metro Gold Line.
