MODERN DAY LIVING IN HISTORIC HOME
Still affectionately known as the RB Hunt (for whom RB Hunt Elementary is named), this Nelmar Terrace residence offers a fusion of traditional elements with an intelligent floor plan that really works for modern-day lifestyles. Presiding from its corner location, the main house fronts tree-lined Nelmar Ave while the detached 620SF garage and 1/1 guest quarters faces Douglas Ave with courtyard and decks between the two buildings. Entering from the front porch your eye is drawn to the wood floors. Heart pine adds a warming tone to a neutral palette and the generous space naturally breaks up into 2 or 3 seating sections. Central dining room is off the living area and opens to the kitchen/family room where daily life will be experienced. Such an abundance of cottage-style cabinets guarantees everything you need is within reach and there's prep space for a group of people to flex their culinary muscles. Hosting guests or watching little ones while you cook is a snap as the family room is part of this large gathering center which spills out to 25 x 9 screened porch and on to a series of decks and pavered courtyard. Large 1st floor master has an excellent new bathroom and adjacent laundry room. 1st floor guest suite includes bedroom, sitting room, updated hall bath and closet. Upstairs two large bedrooms share a new bathroom. With 4 private bedrooms, there's room for everyone and a place for pursuing individual passions in your own space. Across the courtyard oversized 2-car garage has workbench and outdoor sink for clean up after gardening or fishing. Upstairs a 1/1 with large living room (and kitchenette) is ready for long-term guests. It also makes a wonderful studio with great natural light. From front door to heart of downtown is 1 mile - 15 minute walk and less on bike. San Marco Ave north and south is dotted with tasty eateries, cool shops, coffee and wine bars and the best dessert spot in town!
