If you’re yearning for simplicity in this crazy day and age, consider this beautiful little bungalow on a quiet, tree-lined street that fronts historic Royer Park in Roseville.
The minimalist movement is a growing trend, and this two bedroom one bath home has everything you will need, and all the charm and unique setting that Roseville has to offer.
Consider the home’s original hardwood floors. The rich, dark wood floors have been refinished to restore their fine luster. The wood brings a warm ambiance to every room, and the kitchen has been outfitted with low maintenance flooring in textured grays and taupe.
It’s sure to be love at first sight when you enter the property. An oversized front porch faces acres of green parkland where kids laugh and play, and people picnic on Sunday afternoons.
The home sits pretty atop a slight rise with stone steps. A picture window and glass-front door complete the serene look.
The property’s layout is ideal for your family — a straight-through design that takes advantage of views of the rear of the property, with its shrub lined side yard as well as an added privacy structure to the fence tops. Between the front and rear of the home lies the kitchen that is outfitted in a knotty wood ceiling and rich wood cabinetry with glass fronts. The kitchen has a four-burner cook top and a built-in microwave, as well as dual sinks. The room even has a center island.
Head to the master bedroom and you’ll be surprised to see a spacious room with a separate sitting area, ideally suited for a nursery or a home gym or office. The space also has outdoor access.
Some of these older bungalows have tiny garages, but not this lovely home on Park Drive. A large garage has been added to the property, and the area includes extensive built-ins as well as a workshop area. The back of the property also includes a grass area and large swing gates to allow oversized vehicle access, in addition to a lovely brick patio.
Though the bungalow was built nearly a century ago, the homeowners recently updated all electrical, HVAC and water and sewer lines and added dual-pane windows. The home has indoor laundry and ceiling fans throughout.
But the best thing about this house is its prime location on the edge of Royer Park and the pedestrian friendly neighborhood that promises easy walking to shops, restaurants and services.
If you’re ready to start the new year off right, why not start it in this beautiful little bungalow in Roseville?
