Imagine you walk up to a bright 1914 frame bungalow with a full-length driveway. It's got a delicate flower bed resting under a row of sunrise windows and a side entrance under mature shade trees. You step through the original porcelain-tiled foyer into an enormous living room with hardwood floors. The room is flanked by a sunroom with French doors to the east and a brick fireplace with antique cast-iron insert on the west. You go through the archway into the formal dining room with its Southern light exposure, and see the first-floor office connects via another set of French doors to the sunroom. You turn, and down the hallway find an impressive kitchen cleverly divided to allow workspace separate from storage and dining. There are two (2!) pantries and a granite island that seats six. You head upstairs and cannot believe the sizes of the three bedrooms, each with its own walk-in closet. The full bath upstairs is nearly twice the size of the full bath downstairs. You're sure you're in a dream. You head back downstairs and check out the basement where you find an unbelievable three more bedrooms, a family room, another full bath, and a laundry room. Outside there's a giant, fenced yard with rear porch, framed veggie and floral beds, perennial shrubs, trees, and flowers, and a 1C garage with alley and driveway access. You're walking distance to the brown line, in an excellent school district, near shops and restaurants, and buses. It's too good to be true! Open your eyes. This is it.
