1927 Spanish bungalow located a half block to Trolley Barn Park in San Diego’s historic and vibrant neighborhood of University Heights. The home is separated from the street with a private courtyard with low maintenance desert landscaping. The period details are evident upon entry, highlighted by original hardwood floors, coved ceilings, archways, and the decorative fireplace lined with built-in bookcases. The efficient floor plan allows a seamless flow and great cross breeze from the living space to the outdoors. From the entry, to the left is the living room and directly ahead is the dining room.
The charming living room is flooded with natural light from the large west-facing windows and the smaller north-facing windows flanking the fireplace. Through the art deco-style archway off the entry is the dining room showcases a bank of windows on the south wall and direct access to the remodeled kitchen. Features include new cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, new backsplash, white quartz countertops and newly resealed terra-cotta floors. The laundry room offers plenty of utility space and room for full-sized stacked equipment, and easy access to the spacious backyard through the backdoor.
Two bedrooms and one bathroom are accessible from the hallway off the kitchen. The bathroom was beautifully remodeled down to the studs with subway tile lined bathtub and Spanish influenced concrete tile floor. The bedroom to the right of the bathroom has views of the backyard, newer lighting and custom built-ins in the closet. The bedroom to the left of the bathroom also features custom closet and is accessible from the living room, making it a nice office alternative.
The backyard that extends to the alley is a prime feature of this home and dramatically expands the living space of this home. Fruit trees line the north side of the yard, leaving ample space for outdoor entertaining and enjoy San Diego's year-round idyllic weather. The oversized 1 car garage is accessible from a pedestrian door in the backyard.
Additional upgrades include ABS sewer line under the house, a 50-foot relined sewer line from the house to the city connection, and new gas plumbing lines.
