Built in 1943, this charming little home is somewhat typical of its Cherrywood neighborhood, developed on former farmland in the 1940s and 1950s primarily with modest homes, many meant for families of military members returning from WWII.
This particular modest home measures 1,222 square feet and has two bedrooms and one bathroom. The wealth of personality expressed in both the home’s exterior and interior could be a love/hate thing, but either way, it has tons of potential and is in a great location.
The hardwood floors are original, and there are other period features—such as the mantel and valence covers, bathtub, and built-in dining-room cabinets—that are possibly reproductions but suit the style. In addition to the large windows and some of the rooms, four added skylights bring in natural light. The home also has an enclosed sunroom that doubles as a laundry area and features a row of tall windows looking out on to the tranquil backyard.
The kitchen features tile countertops and upgraded cabinets.
Other improvements throughout the years include the installation of double-paned windows, a metal roof, and a security system.
The backyard features numerous shade trees, a detached carport/storage area/gazebo, and a very cute potting shed/workshop.
