Open House at 211 E 2nd St
When you're through walking around the Fourth Avenue Street Fair this weekend, head a few blocks northwest to the fabulous house I will be holding open from 1 to 4 on Sunday. 211 East 2nd Street is two blocks south of Speedway between 5th and 6th Avenues.
This 1912 Craftsman style bungalow is quintessential West University. Of course, it has an embracing front porch, maple floors, big windows, French doors, high ceilings, rich wood accents and character galore. But there are surprises, too. You'll say "I'm going to do that at home!" when you see the shower that reminds me of a Japanese garden.
The kitchen has been updated and rearranged so you can happily cook holiday meals here that you will serve in the formal dining room. The pool is the highlight of the back yard oasis.
This property is listed by Susan Denis of Realty Executives Southern Arizona for $435,000. The seller (a fellow Realty Executives agent) has a fabulous sense of design, and the furnishings are enchanting. You can have everything in the house except the art, electronics, and the kitchen knife set for only $5,000 more. Move into this dream home and you don't have to buy a single chair, towel or dish. You won't want to leave this warm and serene retreat, and here's a rare opportunity to buy the ambiance along with the house.
