Located on a spacious corner lot in desirable Whitman Square, this classic mid-century modern rancher has been lovingly maintained by its original owners since its debut in 1959. Embodying all the convenience of single story living, the layout of this traditional rambler features the primary living areas on the main floor while the full-footprint basement doubles the overall space available in the home. Entering the home from the quaint front porch, you will find the dining room to your left and living room to your right with all three bedrooms and the full bathroom located beyond the living room to the right side of the home. Original hardwood floors lay beneath the carpeting in all of these rooms just begging to be uncovered and exposed. Adjoining the formal dining room is the eat-in kitchen. Vintage knotty pine cabinets frame the u-shaped kitchen workspace and the extended counter top serves as a comfortable breakfast bar that maximizes both space and functionality. A larger kitchen eating area provides ample room for a table and chairs within this space while the pantry closet addresses your grocery storage needs. Access to the rear deck and lush backyard is available through the kitchen allowing for both indoor and outdoor entertaining. A half-bath off the kitchen completes the main level. While the main floor has had some updating over the years, the finished basement is a retro-lover's dream come true. Fix yourself a Manhattan, and let the nostalgia begin. Here, panel-clad walls, authentic linoleum flooring and vintage light fixtures evoke the bygone 1960’s spirit. If these walls could talk, you would hear the echo of the countless family gatherings and swanky parties hosted here in its heyday. Today, this finished space would serve as the perfect place for a casual family room, sports den, home gym or office area. Behind the finished half of the basement is the large stock room with cedar closet and the adjoining laundry room with walkout stairs to the backyard. Leave these areas unfinished for storage or finish off these rooms into additional living space to suit your needs. It’s true that this cutie may not be as modern as some of her flashier (and pricier) contemporaries, but this home’s pristine condition, original hardwood floors, and simple white walls provide a blank canvas ready to be updated and decorated to suit your personal tastes. Most importantly, with all the major systems and mechanicals updated over the years including HVAC (2017), hot water heater (2015), replacement windows and vinyl siding this shy charmer is move-in ready. This home truly has so much to offer plus all the benefits of being in the Whitman Square community including 1 block walking distance to Whitman Elementary School and the Whitman Swim Club (membership optional for an annual fee) and easy access to dining, shopping, recreation and more!
