Location, location, location! That just begins to describe this Charming 1920 English Tudor home, nestled in Sellwoods historic Garthwick neighborhood. Our clients had been walking through Garthwick for years hoping someday one of the seldom-sold homes would become available. They purchased the home last year.
Walking up to the house, you feel the warmth of its design with the new front stucco, masonry, stone work, and new landscaping. The original red gumwood front door opens into a revised staircase with steel balusters and slate flooring. The original living room in front, with its custom-tile surround fireplace, opens to a new family room addition in back with a full window wall to the fresh backyard hardscapes.
The lower addition includes an office where the original gumwood window was reused. The family room flows past a covered paver patio, with outdoor heating and TV, into the newly updated kitchen. New granite tops and appliances create a much more useable space that lends itself to entertaining a crowd. The powder room on this level was fully renovated with tile flooring and custom woodwork.
The master bedroom was given most of the attention with the new addition, including a master bath with an expansive two-head tile shower. The vanity boasts a beautiful granite countertop with tile floors throughout. The lighting and glass block windows brighten the interior of the home. The upstairs guest bath has a unique tub sunken into the floor that was refinished with tile surround and tile flooring.
This home is a real treasure that was brought back to life and will continue its charm for generations to come.
