001-FULL521 Colton Avenue – Offered at $114,900

Imagine coming home after a long day.  You drive down your tree lined street and pull into the driveway of your stately home.  For a moment you are transported back in time to the 1930’s and can imagine guests entering between the pillars into the grand foyer.

They must have enjoyed gathering in the living room around the fireplace.  It has been converted to a gas fireplace over time, but you think of the crackling and laughter that had to occur.


After relaxing by the fire they must have traveled into the dining room.  Maybe the discussion around the table was that of prohibition or some other scandalous topic, so they would close the glass doors to keep the conversation private.


The chef of the home may have wanted to keep their secret recipe a secret – easy to do, there is a door between the dining room and kitchen to keep it private.  Or, if you like to cook and use every pot and pan available you won’t have to worry about dishes until after your company has left.

Even though that was then, today you still have many of the same desires when coming home and when entertaining in your home.

006-FULLWhen spring rolls around and the nights are warmer you can sit out on the screened in porch off of the living room and listen to the crickets.

Did you notice the majestic Redwood in the front yard?  It keeps the home cool in the summer with its canopy.  The backyard has plenty of room to run, have a picnic, or grow a garden.  Take in the scent of the perennials when they pop up in the spring.

In the basement there is a finished room you can use as a recreation room, game room, or maybe you’ve been looking for a room to call your own and decorate in any way you see fit that won’t “Clash with the rest of the house”.  It’s there for you to make into your own special place!

019-FULLAfter a busy day and relaxing for a while you will make your way upstairs.  If you need some quiet while upstairs, there is another glass door at the top of the stairs to buffer the sounds from below.  Won’t it be nice to hide away from the rest of the world this way?

At the top of the stairs the main bathroom is ready for the hustle and bustle of the morning routine.  Downstairs there is a half bath for that last minute touch up before running out the door to start the day.

Under the carpeting on the 2nd floor you will find hardwoods.  Imagine what the hallway would look like with gleaming hardwood floors! Or, maybe you are like the home sellers and love the feel of carpet under your feet.

The four bedrooms provide ample room for your family.  Outside of the master you will find a spacious walk-in closet.

Are you still thinking you want more space?  Walk up the stairs to the attic.  Now let your imagination run wild!
