Property Description

Charming 1947 city cottage with a big lot and an off-the-grid vibe for those looking for a more sustainable and environmentally friendly lifestyle. The small footprint provides a cozy and intimate home in an urban setting. The room sizes are generally compact and designed to make the most of the available space. The living room features two big windows with lots of natural light, wall sized built in bookshelves and newly refinished old growth fir floor. The original millwork, three panel solid wood interior doors with glass knobs and original kitchen cabinetry provide a glimpse of the history of the home. There are two bedrooms on the main floor and a refreshed bathroom. Access to upstairs by an alternating tread ladder. The removed half of every tread provides greater step depth for more comfort and safety. The vaulted sleeping loft has a hardwood floor and ventilation from windows on both ends. The solar roof panels installed in 2021 provide a renewable energy source saving money while allowing you to power your home without relying on the grid. Central air conditioning was added in December 2021 to provide summer comfort keeping you cool as temperatures rise.The big lot allows for ample outdoor space. Adding to the home?s practicality the large space may provide a source of fresh produce and a fun hobby for those interested in gardening or perhaps an urban farm? The large patio provides great space for entertaining or simply relaxing in the fresh air.The neighborhood is convenient to transit, restaurants, coffee shops and freeways. Whether you want to work the land or are just looking for a peaceful retreat, this property has something special to offer. ENERGY SCORE 8! [Home Energy Score = 8. HES Report at]
