Walk through
The remodel about 10 years ago leaves polished hardwood floors, high ceilings and lots of windows and adds lofty spaces throughout. Enter into the cozy living area sharing a front room with the formal dining room. The custom kitchen is nearby, boasting a six-burner Viking range, wine fridge, zinc-topped island with barstool seating, numerous prep stations and plenty of storage. A desk area sits at the far end of the extensive counterspace.

The master suite occupies an entire wing at the back of the house with a loft bedroom overlooking a spacious sitting area and study opening to the covered deck from French doors. Two walk-in closets add to the amenities here, as does a master bath with dual vanities, oversized shower and claw-foot soaking tub. A stained glass window in the shower brings in natural light and makes a nod to the home's original styling.

In total, the house offers three bedrooms and two full baths, as well as a detached guest house/studio.

Step outside
The party begins here with outdoor living under a covered deck with stained wood flooring  — an oasis perfect for relaxing and entertaining. The large lot still allows for a side yard with green space for any activities. A step-down from the porch leads around the corner to the lap pool surrounded by brick sidewalks and built-in planters. A cabana at one end of the pool provides more protected space. An additional bricked patio is located off the kitchen near the guest house.
