Featured Listing: Roosevelt Ave.
I'm excited to share my new listing at 1241 Roosevelt Avenue in Redwood City with you. It's a very cool arts and crafts home, built in 1912. It was probably one of the only homes on the block, or within blocks, when it was built.
The front of the house and entry is full of charm and other original and well-thought out details — from gorgeous windows, craftsman moulding, beautiful textured walls, and an attic dormer. Upon entering the house you're greeted by a formal living room. There is an awesome built in nook in the front corner, which is the perfect place to hang out and read a book.
The U-shaped kitchen is very functional with butcher block countertops, shaker cabinets, and adequate storage space. The spacious dining room off the back of the house could be utilized in multiple ways —you could use it as a family room, crafting room, or a combination.
All 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are on the main floor. The master bedroom suite has 2 closets and bathroom with a shower and bathtub. The remaining two bedrooms are adjoined by a Jack & Jill bathroom.
Here’s a floor plan to help you get a feel for the space:
The finished attic has hosted many slumber parties, served as a kids TV/video game room, and has even been utilized as an additional bedroom. Off the attic, there are two good sized storage spaces. This is the perfect place for keeping holiday decorations and other items out of the way.
The basement is good place for storage as well. Camping and sporting equipment, knick nacks, you name it. The backyard is a really good size. There's space for gardening, a patio, a deck, kids’ play space, and 2 storage sheds.
And the location is awesome. Shops, restaurants, and groceries at Roosevelt Center is about 0.5 miles away. Downtown, Caltrain, and etc. is just 1.25+/- miles away. Red Morton park is literally steps away, where the new Magical Bridges Playground will be opening soon.
