    Description

    Get ready to be charmed by this lovely 3 story home, located on a wonderful block in Bella Vista, and featuring an incredible 37 feet deep backyard oasis. Stepping through the doorway of the classic brick facade and original Tofani door leads you through a beautifully blue tiled vestibule and into the sunny, spacious, and open living area. Take a step up into the dining area and appreciate the exposed brick archway which leads into the kitchen. The kitchen is bright and cheerful with sun shining in from the skylight and backyard. There is generous counterspace, including a charming breakfast area countertop that opens back up into the dining area. Step outside and just imagine the possibilities with your 37+GG deep backyard. There is already a charming gazebo to enjoy relaxing and socializing under and plenty of additional room for gardening, grilling, playing, or entertaining. The second and third levels of the home feature beautiful original hardwood floors and other original details. On the second floor you will find a spacious, bright and airy bedroom with a full sized closet and original fireplace (currently decorative). Take one step down into a connected bonus room that has wonderful possibilities as a dressing room, small office, yoga/meditation room-- whatever suits your lifestyle. The full bathroom on this floor feels luxuriously spacious and bright. Upstairs you will find 2 generously sized bedrooms, both with closets. Enjoy the skyline view from the front bedroom. The back bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom with shower. There is a great sense of privacy between the 3rd floor and the rest of the home which can be appreciated in many scenarios, such as having a roommate, children, or working from home. Downstairs, the basement is clean and dry and great for storage. This wonderful home is in an incredible location-- a few blocks to the Italian Market, right by all of the charming restaurants and shops of Bella Vista and Queen Village, a quick stroll into Center City, near several parks, and on the same block as the celebrated Nebinger School. There are major bus lines nearby (including the 47 a block away) and you can jump right on 95 in just a few minutes+GG drive. Parking is available in the Nebinger parking lot any time that school is not in session. This home has been lovingly cared for and is fully move-in ready and also offers opportunities to update and make it your own. Wow, come visit and make this beautiful home your own today!
