Our featured listing at 918 Rutledge Avenue is located in the residential North Central neighborhood. The home was built in the 1920’s but has been subtly renovated to appeal to today’s buyer. Lush landscaping and mature trees accent the front yard while the full front porch, complete with a porch swing, provides an ideal place to enjoy the cooler temperatures. Inside, the home has a flowing floor plan with the living room, dining room and kitchen gradually transitioning from room to room. Hardwood floors, abundant windows, crown molding and original fireplaces enhance the space. Accessible from the dining room is the renovated kitchen which has been updated with tile flooring, tile counters and stainless steel appliances.
Upstairs are the home’s three bedrooms. Each of the bedrooms are well-sized and share a full bath with a clawfoot tub and wainscoting. A downstairs laundry room and a study with built-in bookshelves are additional highlights of the interior.
Another attractive feature is the home’s large yard. It is fenced and private with a detached storage shed for all your outdoor equipment. A driveway also provides off-street parking so you never have to worry about finding a spot.
