Timeless, priceless charm. Welcome to the Evergreen Historic District and its ''hidden gem''. Beneath the canopy of lush and mature foliage, this finely remodeled, one-of-a-kind single story bungalow peacefully awaits. Remodeled with strict attention to detail that allows for the piece of mind of a new build but careful enough to not lose the original charm that evokes feelings of nostalgia. The warm glow of the original wood floors (1945) have been restored and the original front window of the home still exists. It's important that the front window was kept as original. This, along with no significant change to the exterior, allows the home to qualify for the Historic District tax break. The remainder of the house has been updated with dual pane windows to increase the energy
efficiency of the home. The kitchen and dining area have been updated to travertine flooring along with new cabinets, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances. Tile in both bathrooms have been updated. The full bath boasts updated shower surround and "furniture" vanity. Updated fixtures, ceiling fans, and hardware are also found throughout with custom finishing touches such as the wood counter at the kitchen peninsula, wood beams on the ceiling, and wooden window sills and door headers.
The important parts that you don't see have also been addressed. The plumbing in the main bathroom and kitchen have been updated. Some of the electrical has also been updated including new breakers added to the electrical panel to meet code requirements. The water heater has been replaced with reconfigured gas lines / venting to meet code requirements. The roof over the master bedroom has been partially replaced as well.
It's helpful to note that there is plenty of space under roof and directly behind the master bathroom that lends itself beautifully to expand the master bathroom.
The exterior boasts fresh custom paint, a laundry room (inside laundry), a large storage / workshop area, mature fruit trees, city irrigated grassy back, and sparkling diving pool (with new pool pump and filter). Notice the private alleyway access? Only those that back the alley way now have access. The city provides a key to the gated area.
All this and more wrapped up in cozy, historic Mesa. This is the neighborhood where the neighbors know each other by first name and all the children and grandchildren come to visit on the holidays. The location is convenient especially with the completion of the light rail (coming in late 2015) which is just seconds to the south in historic Downtown Mesa. This area is beginning it's transformation back to the bustling metropolis that it once was. Downtown Mesa is the home of the world renowned Mesa Arts Center, the historical museum, and many highly recommended restaurants including Nunthaporn's Thai Cuisine and the original Blue Adobe. The homes in the historic districts (there are 7 districts total) are being renovated and are welcoming new families. There is quite a vision among the community for the future of Downtown and the groundwork is being laid each day toward this vision. The Downtown Mesa association and the Mesa Chamber coordinate events on a weekly basis that interest all walks of life. This includes the arts, music, and family friendly events. Welcome to the perfect place to create memories that will never be forgotten.
