Extraordinary Craftsman Home in East Sacramento
For anybody who appreciates historic homes in East Sacramento, it doesn’t get any better than an extraordinary 1915 Craftsman. This new East Sacramento listing is a high-water bungalow with terrazzo steps leading up to the big front porch. I would love to sit up on this porch and watch men push babies in strollers and kids ride by on bikes. In fact, I would love to buy this home but my husband says we’re not moving.
When you open the antique front door, the home immediately welcomes you; there is a feeling of grandeur and warmth. It speaks fondly to you. Vintage features are intact and beautifully stunning such as the boxed ceilings, hardwood floors, high baseboards, molding, light fixtures, plus you’ll find sparkling chandeliers and even some of the door frames feature raised wood carvings. Many of the ceilings are unique, formed and curved by master plasterers from back in the day.
In addition to the formal living and dining rooms, this spacious home boasts a separate family room, plus a desirable first-floor bedroom with bay windows. The kitchen is so enormous you could roller skate across the black-and-white patterned floor and around the butcher block island that stays with the home. Plenty of cabinets, stainless appliances, plus a space for a breakfast table that could probably seat 10 people.
French doors lead to the back-yard deck. The deck is partially covered, and the yard has hydrangeas, fruit trees, a raised vegetable garden, an outbuilding used as a children’s playhouse, and a private patio, along the perimeter of a lush lawn. This beautiful view is also attainable from the second-floor bedroom, which has been lovingly remodeled by the owners with hardwood planked flooring and a walk-in closet.
There are 4 bedrooms and 3 baths in this home. The master suite features a marble bath, with unique built-in storage for shoes, which I, a woman who has a fondness for shoes, absolutely covet. The tub is jetted, and there is a separate shower sporting a pebble stone floor. The dual sink vanity with a cool marble surface features a large mirror.
On top of all of this, there is a full basement. The ductwork has been upgraded, plus any upgrades under the house are easy to do with a full basement.
Come to the open house on Sunday, October 27th, from 2:00 to 4:00 PM, held by the Elizabeth Weintraub Team.
