Nestled on a wide, tree-lined street in the Washington Square Historic Landmark District is this charming Spanish Revival Bungalow. Designed by Irving Gill, this historically significant home has been approved for the Mills Act, which will result in significant property tax savings for the new owner. The inviting front porch with signature horseshoe arches is only the beginning of a home replete with original detail. The formal living room offers historic nine-panel Prairie-style windows, built-in book shelves around a tile and wood fireplace, crown and base molding and gleaming hardwood floors. The adjacent formal dining area boasts a classic chandelier and built in sideboard. The kitchen has a vintage Gladding McBean tile splashback and hexagonal tile counter, hardwood floors, additional countertop, stowaway ironing board and plenty of wood cabinetry. There’s also an adjoining laundry room with access to the cozy covered patio and backyard. On the other side of the home are two ample size bedrooms both with walk-in closets. The full bathroom has a shower over bathtub, pedestal sink and linoleum floor. In the hallway are deep built-in drawers and a linen closet. The first half of the very deep, flat, enclosed yard has been landscaped with winding paths through a variety of irrigated plant beds. The back part of the lot has been enhanced with a raised garden area and still has plenty of room for play or additional vegetation. The detached 1-car garage has been finished for use as office or guest room, and even has its own patio and awning. The home includes a tankless water heater, new custom built wood driveway gate, exterior awnings over windows and central air/heat. This is a home that has been lovingly cared for through the years, combining the best of historic character and the convenience of modern upgrades. Note: this is a short sale, subject to bank approval.
