A spacious landing at the front door is roomy enough for a bistro set or sitting area. Just inside, the foyer leads you left to the living room and right to the dining and kitchen.
A crisp white fireplace with insert is the focal point for the large living room with lots of natural light and the best seat in the house for a view of the quaint, tree-lined neighborhood.
Down the hall, you’ll find a cheerful formal dining with period built-in hutch/buffet that sets the scene for gatherings. The craftsman style really comes out with the scalloped and curved edges. The bead board wainscoting and lap-style tongue-in-groove ceiling bring an extra level of 1940s charisma to the space.
Cook to your heart’s content in the kitchen with a GE 5-burner range and dual ovens, stainless dishwasher, quartz countertops, subway tile, and large windows.
Beyond the kitchen lies the large laundry room with hookups, small utility sink, cabinets, built-in ironing board, and basement access. There is also a door to the backyard, so it can double as a mudroom!
Access a full bath is here as well as a large bedroom with its own backyard access and large closet. Another bedroom is just beyond with a full wall of shelving, making it a great office or flex space.
A full bath sits between this room and the front bedroom (with TWO closets!) This bathroom comes with a leathered marble countertop, enclosed shower, and a separate tub. A cabinet by the sink actually opens to the hallway as well!
Follow the switchback stairs to the second level and you’ll find two large bedrooms and a full bath. The first bedroom is carpeted and quite large. The second bedroom, what I would call the owner’s quarters, comes with a fun extra feature. An archway separates it from a petite space that would be a perfect sitting room, boudoir/closet, or nursery.
The full bath has a leathered marble countertop, large glass shower, and separate tub.
All bedrooms have ceiling fans and crown molding, while all three baths have vintage hexagonal tile flooring and sconced lighting.
Low maintenance entertainment is the name of the game in this backyard. Get the gang together for cookouts to enjoy the built-in BBQ & bar. Plus a large paved patio under the shade of a gorgeous fig tree is a perfect spot for outdoor dining. String up some bistro lights for a whimsical evening!
Plenty of off-street parking with the roomy driveway. And a 2-car garage…what?! A rare find!
Living on Bidwell has several perks. Generations of families have stayed here, meaning there are many neighborhood traditions. Friday night gatherings, 4th of July parades, and more.
Enjoy being a short distance to good eating and groceries for you foodies. Convenient public transport a block away will get students to CSUS & UCDMC lickety-split! Minutes from downtown/midtown, there’s always something to do. And all this at less than $345 a foot! Wow!
