Property Description

Welcome to 1031 61st Street, a wonderfully reimagined 1925’s home with 2+ bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, conveniently located in the heart of the vibrant NOBE neighborhood.

Step inside and you are immediately greeted by a loft-like setting with soaring ceilings and a sun-drenched living space warmed by new hardwood floors. To your right behind french doors a sweet bonus room can be found. This room is ideal for a home office, media room or third bedroom.

The seamless flow between living, dining and kitchen sets the stage for comfortable California living. At the heart of this space, find a gas fireplace – imagine enjoying your morning coffee and favorite book around a warm fire. Large front and corner windows allow for plenty of natural light.

Across the hall is a spacious bathroom with a double vanity, tile floors, colorful tile backsplash, newly added light fixtures and shower over tub combination. This is a true retreat!

On the lower level, more delightful spaces will unfold before you. The second bedroom with new carpet and fresh paint allows for a flexible separation of space. A sleekly styled adjoining bathroom boasts a shower with fun, large tile surround and new light fixture. Tucked away in the hallway closet find a stackable washer and dryer - making laundry days a breeze.

Out the side glass door to a charmingly landscaped rear garden. Low maintenance yet pleasant, this will be a sweet spot to gather with friends under the twinkling lights.
