Washington Park Craftsman Bungalow

3 beds, 2 baths, 2,442 Sq Ft total square feet, 1 car garage & two off-street parking spaces

This Washington Park charmer is just steps from the park which also means it has views of the park from the front porch. What could be better?

I absolutely LOVE this home … and all of the charm it excludes.

Enjoy the original character of this home including original wood floors, wood burning fireplace, built-ins,  two stair cases, dining room chandelier that was one of nine original fixtures from a historic downtown hotel. Did I mention the antique retrofitted vanities in the upstairs bathroom and downstairs kitchen area.  The closed-in sun room at the front of this home offers a perfect spot to unwind after a long day. In addition to the gorgeous sun room, cozy up in front of the fire in the living room or host your next party in the spacious dining room.

Kitchen upgrades include stainless steel appliances, gas stove and breakfast nook all just steps from the dining room. The master bedroom is not only spacious, but also features a sitting room that could be perfect for an office, nursery or expanded closet!

Did someone say AirBnB?! The legal rental and Airbnb approved basement features a large family room with wood floors underneath the carpeting, gas fireplace and built-ins. The non-confirming bedroom, large bathroom, bonus kitchen/lounge are make this area a true delight. No need for a rental or extra income? Then make sure of the three different storage areas including the original canning room, large utility room and secondary storage room.


The exterior is a garden’s paradise with peach tree in front and Japanese Magnolia in backyard. The rolled roof is about the be completely replaced along with the garage roof, gutters and new paint along the south side of the house!
