From its white picket fence and lovely landscaping to its new stone entry and beveled-glass mahogany door, this beautiful and elegant home greets you with a warm “Welcome Home!” You’ll be surprised by how spacious it feels, and you’ll be delighted by its many wonderful features, starting with its bright and open floor plan with crown molding and hardwood floors. The living room flows past classic tapered columns to a dining area and spacious chef-inspired kitchen. Space is thoughtfully used for maximum efficiency--so there’s oodles of storage. The main bedroom has a large closet, ceiling fan, plus a French door that opens onto the rear yard. The second bedroom has double French doors to the living area, custom lighted bookcases, and an artistically inspired Murphy Bed to allow quick and easy conversion to office or study. The charming bath with wainscoting and clawfoot tub has a pedestal sink and classic hexagonal floor tile. From the light-filled kitchen a French door leads you to an inviting and private stone patio with electric awning, playfully splashing fountain and cheerfully blooming red bougainvillea. Plus, there’s an approximately 10x20 foot drywalled garage with laundry area, plus room for a car. This wonderful cottage-style home was remodeled down to the studs in 2005 while maintaining the original character of the home, with new wiring, recessed lights, crisp white kitchen cabinets, stunning granite counters, roomy pantry, new roof, copper plumbing and remodeled bath. More recent enhancements include exterior paint, new garage roof, tankless water heater, split mini-AC, and beautiful landscaping. But best of all, you’re less than a mile from the beach! You’re also very close to the Colorado Lagoon which offers swimming and great birdwatching--and to the Red Car Greenbelt for leisurely outings. Belmont Shore's famous 2nd street, with its cool shops and trendy restaurants, is only about 1 mile away! Come enjoy the graceful and relaxed lifestyle Belmont Heights is famous for!
