Indoors: The front yard is hidden from the street by a gate and a row of hedges, and includes a stone fountain set in front of steps that lead to the main entrance.
Across the threshold is a living room with original hardwood floors, a large window looking out over the front yard and a fireplace framed in red brick. A wide, arched doorway leads to the dining area; on the other side of this space is another wide arch that leads to a kitchen with new stainless steel appliances and counters topped in green marble.
A hallway off the dining area runs toward the bedroom wing. To the right is a cozy guest room large enough for a double bed. Next door is another guest room with space for a queen-size bed and a desk. These two bedrooms share a bathroom across the hall, with Art Deco-inspired sconces and well-maintained 1930s tile in black and green.
The primary bedroom is at the back of the house, with two built-in armoires and an en suite bathroom. Recently updated, the bathroom has a glass-walled shower and a vanity with chrome fixtures that match the chrome lighting above the mirror.
The guest apartment over the garage has a full bathroom and a kitchen.
Outdoor space: The property has several distinct outdoor spaces, including a paved patio off the kitchen. One section, which holds a hot tub, is covered with a pergola; the other gets more sunlight and is large enough for a table and additional furniture. A barbecue is built into a low brick wall. The yard is terraced, with steps leading up to a flat, grassy area, and mature, fruit-bearing trees lining the fence. The detached garage holds two cars.
Taxes: $19,932 (estimated)
