From the street, 217 N Spring Garden may appear to be just a cute little bungalow, but it is actually a spacious, 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, 1,950 square foot home. 217 has been lovingly cared for and is move in ready.
True to its Craftsman style, the home boasts wonderful architectural details, including an enviable front porch where you are sure to spend many evenings.
Inside, you are welcomed into a bright living room which offers sight lines into the kitchen, dining room, and den. The living room features slate flooring and a lovely fireplace (currently operating with a gas insert, but could easily be returned to a wood burning fireplace, if you’d like). The living room is open to the den on your right, which offers plenty of built-ins. Beyond the living room, you will find a spacious dining room, offering convenient access to the kitchen.
The kitchen is large enough to accommodate a table and chairs for casual dining and offers ample workspace on the granite countertops and plenty of storage in the solid birch cabinets. You will also appreciate the stainless steel appliances and gas cooking.
Through the kitchen you will find a large family room that offers endless possibilities. The scale of this room is significant, yet still manages to feel cozy, as there is a TV area which features a gas stove (fireplace), another area for dining, gaming, crafting, you name it, a separate laundry room, as well as a powder room, and convenient access to both the rear patio and the driveway on the side of the house.
A first floor bedroom with built-in closet units, and full bathroom round out the main floor, allowing for the possibility of one floor living.
Upstairs, there is a charming landing, three bedrooms, and a large full bathroom featuring porcelain tile flooring, granite countertop with a vessel sink, glass backsplash, and a large linen closet.
Down below, the full basement is unfinished and offers tons of storage space, as well as outside access.
Outside you will find a wonderful, private patio and a sweet yard, offering room for play, raised beds for gardening, and a shed. In addition to the shed, there are built ins along the driveway offering even more storage. Out front, the porch features unique shaved brick flooring, vinyl railings, and built-in seating and storage at either end. It is the perfect place to enjoy conversation in the shade or relax during a rainstorm. The driveway offers parking for at least 4 cars.
