Although this home has an outrageously beautiful remodeled mastersuite bath, there is still an opportunity for some lucky buyer to personalize and upgrade this 1926 Curtis Park charmer to build equity. The address is 3215 Cutter Way, accessible from 7th Avenue, and the location is fantastic. Cutter Way runs parallel to and is a block away from East Curtis. East Curtis is a main thoroughfare fronting the lovely William Curtis Park. Many homes on Cutter are Tudors, adding a certain amount of glamor to the neighborhood.
The home has a newer shake roof, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a formal dining room with an original chandelier and leaded glass doors on the built-in china hutch. Some of the unusual features -- besides the vintage light fixtures, picture railings, chair rails, high baseboards and all the leaded glass windows -- are all the nooks, crannies, built-in storage and closet spaces.
Most of the flooring is original hardwood. The kitchen is laminate, but the breakfast nook through the archway has wood flooring. The first-floor bath has the original "chicken wire" tiled floor, big tub with shower and an updated pedestal sink. The second-floor mastersuite bath boasts a slate floor, soaring wood ceiling, a granite-like vanity that runs from wall to wall and a new shower.
There is also an oversized one-car garage with a step-down workshop added to the back. Pretty yard with flowers, camellias, fence and auto sprinklers in the front and rear.
More attractive is the price: $385,000, which is under the maximum conforming loan limit to qualify for the best interest rates. Call your Curtis Park agent, Elizabeth Weintraub, Lyon Real Estate, for a private showing at 916.233.6759.
