Description

Picturesque cottage charm leaves you feeling like you're vacationing in Nantucket! You'll fall in love with this darling home with it's beautiful picket fenced backyard, curved patio and wonderful screened porch. There's also a two garage garage which is almost unheard of in this price range. The interior is fresh and airy with modern retro touches throughout including a 50's style cheery yellow kitchen with an incredible original porcelain sink with double drainboards and original metal cabinets. The newly updated bathroom features wainscoting and clean, fresh, white tiled walls and a recently discovered (and now exposed) glass block window. The master is large and inviting and the second bedroom was transformed into darling children's room with custom wall paintings. Downstairs is an incredible pub/media room which is wonderful for entertaining as it has immediate access to the screened porch for extended outdoor parties. The backyard is a gardeners delight with wonderful specialty trees, a garden and beautiful perennials. There is also a lovely curved patio that winds past the screened porch. Enjoy walking to downtown and Kirkwood park and have front row seats for the 4th of July fireworks which light the sky directly over this home. From here you can also walk to the charming Keysor Elementary which is undergoing major renovations this summer, and you're also just a few blocks from Kirkwood high school. You'll simply fall in love with this wonderful neighborhood, location and truly charming home!
