This is that happy but all too rare story that begins, “We bought this home when it was built in 1959 and did not feel the need to move again”. Here at 5844 Irving Avenue the Taylor family has quite happily lived and flourished for over 50 years. They have loved the small town community feeling of this Upper Briggs Terrace neighborhood.
The well conceived original design contributed to the enjoyment of this home for all of those years. The three bedroom and two bath floor plan radiates from the formal entry and its flat black slate flooring. The bright kitchen opens to a family room with wood flooring, a beamed ceiling, and a warm brick fireplace. The clever design allows this family room to flex with a breakfast room or even a formal dining room. The formal living room is generous in size and also enjoys a fireplace. The central hall leads to all three of the bedrooms. The master suite enjoys its original wood windows and a remodeled master bath.
The Owners have particularly enjoyed the rear yard with its pool, spa, and raised garden beds. There is also a large bonus room off the living room that has been used as an entertaining space, gym, and home office. This is a fortunate find in this price range within the Mountain Avenue area for a very fortunate Buyer.
