Sited on a large secluded lot, the three-bedroom, two-bath home is hidden from the street. Inside, walls of glass blur the lines between indoor/outdoor. The living room, kitchen, and dining room open to one another, offering eye-catching features like the notable block fireplace with cantilevered hearth seating continuing from inside to out.
There are original details preserved throughout that blend with current, modern conveniences such as hardwood floors, recessed lighting, a tankless water heater, copper plumbing, a steel and glass garage door, and updated baths with oversized stall showers and modern fixtures.
Mature trees and lush landscaping hug the grounds but don’t block the view. Last sold in 2012 for $790,000. Listed by Tom Sardo, the asking price is now $1,499,000.
