Come fall in love with the picture perfect location and quintessential charm of this expanded Arts & Crafts cottage on sycamore-lined Saxer Avenue. This home has been meticulously restored to make it easy to live in and easy to love. A beautiful covered front porch with a heart of pine floor gives the exterior a fairytale look. Enter the generous living room to enjoy the finished wood floors and soft neutral colors found throughout the home. A stone fireplace with a mantel brings warmth and character to the light-filled living room. The formal dining room is large enough for entertaining with an open archway into the living room so the party can flow. The updated kitchen features glossy granite countertops and stainless steel appliances to please the cook. Off the kitchen is the spacious family room addition. The ceiling soars and the floor is finished wood, but your eye will be drawn to the beautiful views over the backyard. A barn door leads to the first floor bedroom wing. Two bright bedrooms, each with a large closet and two windows, as well as a renovated hall bath with marble tile floor and surround can be found on the first floor. Upstairs the primary bedroom boasts a walk-in closet with organizers. The fourth bedroom is also upstairs, and offers a beautiful sunny view over Saxer Avenue. A sumptuously renovated hall bath with a heart of pine floor, oversized glass shower with pebble floor and a wall of built-in storage cupboards completes the second floor. The spacious unfinished basement and floored attic eaves accessed from the master bedroom allow ample storage options. Newer HVAC, plumbing and electrical provide comfort and peace of mind. The backyard is spacious enough for playtime and parties, yet easy to maintain. A large storage shed is great for storing tools and sports equipment. This very special home is served by award-winning Springfield Schools. Best of all is the location in the heart of the vibrant Saxer Avenue shopping district, with three parks, a library, and the trolley to downtown and Media just blocks away. (And yes, the front porch allows the fortunate owners a front row seat to Springfield's beloved St. Patrick's Day and Fourth of July parades!) Schedule your private tour today. Just one visit and you will never want to say goodbye.
