This well maintained, beautifully landscaped 2-story, 4-bedroom home is located in the Graham Addition, one of Lewisburg’s most desirable neighborhoods, close to downtown shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Larger than a cottage but more compact than many contemporary residences, the home is easy to maintain and has a large, partly fenced yard excellent for small children and pets.
Tan shingled siding, black shutters and a shingled roof enhance the exterior and add to the home’s tidy appearance. A covered front stoop graces the front of the residence, which occupies a corner lot, and there is a side entrance leading from an enclosed porch to the kitchen.
The living room, kitchen, dining room, two bedrooms and a bath are on the main level. The living room has oak flooring and a brick fireplace with a tile hearth and decorative wood mantel.
The kitchen has blue-gray cabinetry, tile flooring, a double stainless steel sink and laminate butcher block countertops. Appliances include a GE electric range with a hooded vent, a Kenmore refrigerator-freezer and a Maytag dishwasher. There is room for a small table for informal meals and snacks. The adjacent dining room has oak flooring and a chair rail.
The carpeted master bedroom has a ceiling and two walls of attractively stained tongue-and-groove knotty pine, and there is a gas brick fireplace with a tile hearth and wood mantel. There are two closets and a ceiling fan. The bedroom opens to a private deck with built-in benches. The deck leads to the fenced back yard and gardens.
The master and second bedroom share a bath with a tile floor, jetted tub with shower, and 6-drawer vanity with a composite marble counter.
Oak stairs lead to the second level, which has two carpeted bedrooms with dormers and a shared bathroom. This bath has a shower-tub and an oak vanity with a composite marble counter.
The basement is essentially a utility area. It serves as the laundry room, and a new Whirlpool washer and dryer are negotiable.
The yard is extensively landscaped with a variety of flowers in lined beds. An old garden shed has been cleverly repurposed and decorated, and has a painted floor. The shed could serve as a playhouse, craft area, or with the addition of insulation, a private office.
There is a detached single car garage with a built-in workbench. The driveway and sidewalk are concrete.
An attractive, quaint, beautifully maintained home in an ideal location, this Lafayette Street property presents an excellent opportunity for a buyer looking for a smaller home in Lewisburg.
