Welcome to the highly sought after Evergreen Historic District! The wide, tree-lined streets, the gathering of an eclectic variety of bungalow homes, and the quaint, tight knit community of neighbors complete the feel of times past while incorporating the convenience and amenities that a modern family requires. Built in 1949…
this rare basement home has been renovated and added onto since yet special attention was paid to restore the qualities and charm of the original home. The original wood flooring in the formal living room, dining room and family room still exists today as do original windows, moldings and doors. With nearly 3100 square feet of living space, you can rest assured that there is room for the entire family to gather for holidays, celebrations, and visits. The historic warmth of the home is so accommodating and spacious yet cozy and comfortable.
The remodeled gourmet kitchen boasts new stainless appliances, beautiful, new white cabinets with grey counters, white subway tile backsplash, HUGE walk-in pantry and updated tile! The kitchen is perfectly centered in the middle of the home with one of the masters with full bath off to the side (with separate outdoor exit). The main home is the perfect set-up for multi-generational families and we haven’t even talked about the separate guest house yet!
The spacious formal dining room is one-of-a-kind with its rounded “wall of windows” that look out onto one of the most private lots on the street. This oversized, flood irrigated lot offers so much space and lush, mature landscaping! There are 9 fruit trees! There are 3 orange trees, a lemon, a mandarin, a pomegranate, a grapefruit, 2 peach trees, a pecan, a grape vine and a small garden. The home does back the old alley and only owners of homes backing the alley are given access. There are two gates to the alley. The guest house is a 2 bed / 1 bath guest house with an attached workshop / storage building.
The options are endless from large family gatherings to baseball games with the kids on a lot of this size. Enjoy the coming and going of the seasons under the canopy of majestic, mature trees and vibrant green grass and shrubbery. The neighbors are friendly and some have been living in their homes for decades. This tight knit community feel lends itself beautifully to holiday celebrations such as Halloween and the Christmas season. More than 600 children visit Evergreen during Halloween and the streets are lined with lights and decorations immediately following Thanksgiving to welcome the coming Christmas season. If you are looking to rekindle the warmth and homey feeling of a visit to Grandma’s in your every day life then this is it. You are home.
