This darling home is the one you are looking for! Full of Craftsman charm and detail, modern updates, and move-in ready condition! There is a great flow on the main level and three bedrooms upstairs. Flexible spaces in the basement with a separate entrance. The front porch is a stunning feature, with more thoughtfully curated spaces in the backyard including a flagstone patio, raised beds in the alley, and off-street parking. This home has been consistently and strategically maintained with a newer roof, exterior paint, water heater, new furnace, and replaced sewer line. You will love all the amenities from 6th Ave just blocks away while coming home to this gem tucked away in a sweet neighborhood.


“We’ll miss how light and bright this house is. The tree out front provides much needed shade in the summer and creates beautiful dancing light when the sun shines through the leaves.”

“We love being able to walk to 6th Ave businesses and the nearby school. The central location names you feel like everything is 10 minutes away.”

“We love walking to the juice bar, Gather and the local wine bar. Desserts from Cat and Rabbit are another treat.”


If you’re looking for a morning or afternoon pick-me-up, that’s not coffee, stop by Gather Juice Co. for healthy, whole food options, cold pressed juices, smoothies, Açaí bowls and more. You can even order online and pick up!

Some other noteworthy locations to dine at are Asado along the 6th Ave District for some really good steak, chicken, prawn or vegetable quinoa bowls. You can also find The Red Hot for gourmet hot dogs and craft beer and the State Street Beer Company for 16 continuously rotating taps, wine, flatbread pizzas, charcuterie + other small snacks.

You’ll have more than one reason to order fresh coffee beans from Bluebeard Coffee Roasters, it’s not just good coffee from a local coffee shop, but they’re also donating coffee to our front line health workers too, so order a bag online today!
