OPEN HOUSE SEPT 17th 10:30-12:30---Tucked away on a pleasant street bordered by sidewalks and trees, the warm welcome of this lovely 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom bungalow begins with curb appeal and continues to the backyard covered patio. This captivating dwelling is a special charmer in the Portsmouth area. The home is within pedestrian range of Northgate Park, soon to be the home of a brand new water park. The proximity to St John's makes for an easy commute to enjoy unique shops, pubs, cafes, and scenic urban parks, as well as Portland's only steel suspension bridge. Oak hardwoods throughout the entryway, living areas, and bedrooms. The kitchen includes an eating nook and enough space to enjoy just as it is or renovate to your heart's desire. The 2 bedrooms--ready for guests or residents, and for your decorative touch-- offer the convenience of ground floor accessibility. Like the garage, the unfinished basement also presents a menu of conversion choices, whether you have in mind a rec room, guest room, studio, or a secluded home office. The expansive yard gives the lot a recreational feel. A double-wide driveway makes ample room for visitor parking, and is connected to a large shop that is available for its original purpose, or you can get creative by treating it as additional flex space. Representing the welcoming personality of the home, a front-facing, breezy porch greets you home, and is a nice spot for relaxing with beverages, whether morning coffee or twilight nightcap. Don't let someone pick this ripe one from the vine ahead of you. [Home Energy Score = 3. HES Report at https://rpt.greenbuildingregistry.com/hes/OR10220629]
