Unique Highwater Bungalow in Midtown Sacramento for Sale
It’s not every day you run across a 1915 highwater bungalow in Midtown like this particular craftsman. Part of what makes this home unique is the fact the seller raised the home to allow for a 9-foot ceiling height in the lower level. A licensed contractor obtained a permit, constructed new walls and poured a new slab. This means the lower level could possibly become a legal unit.
The city of Sacramento encourages more rental property. Of course, that lower level could be used as a family room, laundry room, studio and storage (it’s about 800 square feet). It is plumbed for another bath. Plus, check out the garage with an electric charging station. The main floor and third floor both feature a full bath, and there is plumbing for a bath off the kitchen, as that particular bath had been removed to allow for a mudroom.
There is a bit over 2,800 square feet in this highwater bungalow in Midtown, according to the contractor’s records. The home has 7 bedrooms, according to the county records, and one of those bedrooms is on the main level. You’ll love the original features in the main level bath such as the pull chain toilet, which, btw, is not required to conform to the new water saving regulations for appliance efficiency in California.
Some of the improvements in this home also include a roof replacement, electrical panel to 200 amp and a somewhat updated kitchen provides modern conveniences such as a gas cooktop and dishwasher, built-in microwave and oven.
The best part of course is much of the beautiful original woodwork is in its natural state and has not been painted. Many ceilings are coved. The hardwood and softwood floors should be refinished, the cracks resulting from lifting the house should be repaired, and the walls painted. Most of the hard stuff has already been completed.
Just for reference, there are very few homes for sale in Midtown at the moment.
