This superb 1912 Craftsman home in Elmwood has been lovingly restored by the sellers and Nurture Source, and everything about this property oozes charm and delight! The wood walls have been recently refreshed, and the kitchen and bath have also been upgraded. Every detail has been addressed tastefully, keeping in mind the spirit of a craftsman home. There are nooks and crannies everywhere, including a phenomenally large attic space with huge potential. The home features a formal dining room, living room, and eat-in kitchen, as well as three large bedrooms, a bath, and a sun porch upstairs. Outdoors, there are several sheds, a beautiful play structure, and an office. The detached garage itself could be utilized in oh so many ways. The yard has mature plantings and fruit trees and raised beds and patios perfect for entertaining. The property is located on a highly desirable street, blocks from College Avenue and all the shops, services, and restaurants that the locale provides. It is in a terrific location for transit and commutes. The neighborhood is home to many superb schools as well. Additionally, the home is closely located next to the famous Claremont Resort and Spa.
