Neighborhood: 70 - Santa Ana North Of First, Other (othr)
This corner ranch-style house is situated in the desirable Washington Square neighborhood, surrounded by an award-winning, water-friendly California xeriscape. The location has little car traffic, ideal for families with children, minimal contact with neighboring houses and has immense potential for the avid gardener. Arrive home from a busy workday and you are surrounded by nature, the song of birds and the wisp of butterflies, relax and observe the natural cyclical changes of fruit trees and plants that offer color and texture. The vegetable garden has five raised beds to build an edible canvas to your taste and the fruit trees offer their bounty year-round, ideal for canning or crop sharing. Inside, you will find an abundance of lovingly restored, original double-hung windows that allow light to showcase the newly refurbished hardwood floors. Four doors, located at cardinal points, allow for access to individual gardens and for airflow to bring the fresh ocean breeze in late afternoons. The two bedrooms are spacious with generous closet space and plenty of windows to bring in light and a view of the bustling green outside. The kitchen boasts a stove and cabinets, built at a time when things were made to last, restored and well maintained through the years. Finally, you will live in the unique community of Washington Square, the best-kept secret in Orange County. You will be embraced by the kindest neighbors, and will connect through the year-round get togethers from wine walks to chili cook-offs, progressive dinners and October fests. Here, you can make lifelong friendships and bonds.
