Fresh designer updates combine with ever-so-classic vintage appointments in this enchanting North Fair Oaks neighborhood. The curb appeal begins with a white picket fence and matching trim that contrast wonderfully with the warm grey palette and vibrant vermilion front door. The covered porch opens to a spacious living and dining room combination, which introduces beautiful wood floors that extend into almost every room. A fireplace enhances the ambiance, and an inviting loggia, accessed from three rooms, takes center stage for a wonderful fresh-air living spot. The kitchen is bright and light and filled with reminders of the homes mid-century heritage like a built-in toaster and can opener in the tiled backsplash modern ingenuity for the time. Two standard bedrooms, one with an adjoining extra-large carpeted room that could be a family room, office, or third bedroom. A vintage tiled bathroom serves the home, plus there is a half-bath in the attached one-car garage with laundry.
