More than meets the eye within the walls of this charming Cape Cod home. Located in the heart of Mt. Ida and only a short distance from Del Ray and popular Mt Vernon Avenue ("The Avenue") where you'll find quaint shops, award-winning restaurants, and endless opportunities for community engagement. Stepping inside, immediately take in the spirit of the setting and the bright, larger-than-expected rooms. Originally built in 1937, the bygone character remains but enhancements have been made to meet modern expectations. Numerous improvements since 2018 include a beautifully renovated kitchen; new roof, hot water heater, and HVAC; a bathroom upgrade; new gutters/downspouts; fresh paint; professional landscaping, and more! The living room is a great space to relax or entertain and features a cozy wood-burning fireplace. Separate dining area off the kitchen for convenience. The kitchen boasts granite countertops, a deep farmhouse sink, white cabinets, a pantry, and name-brand stainless steel appliances. On the main level, two bedrooms and one full bath deliver the ideal one-level living setup if needed for a multi-generational household. The upper level is comprised of two additional bedrooms, including the primary suite, and a fully renovated full bathroom. The primary bedroom provides a gracious walk-in closet. Fall in love with the finished lower level with phenomenal storage options, a laundry room, a large rec/family room with plush carpet, and the home's second fireplace with brick surround and hearth. Outdoor space will be envied by all and become the future space to gather with friends and family, with a deck that walks down to a wonderful fenced and flat yard with a brick patio, pergola, and grill pad. The driveway allows parking for two cars and there is ample street parking as well. Easy access to I-395 makes commuting a breeze. These owners have poured a lot of love into this home, and you won't want to miss the opportunity to make it your own.
