This 1920s Craftsman bungalow on the edge of Fort Russell historical district is ready for new owners! Two blocks from East City Park and minutes from downtown, U of I, and area schools, the home offers 1501 sq ft livable space, with 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, 1-car garage, and an 858 sq ft unfinished basement with laundry and abundant storage space. A bright, open and functional floor plan provides defined living areas, a custom kitchen with vintage Wedgewood stove, a full-hearth gas fireplace, reading nooks with built-in bookcases, and sliding glass doors that lead onto a large deck and spacious, private backyard. Main level has a guest bedroom (non-conforming), light and quiet enough to use as an office. Off the kitchen, a bonus room with walk-in pantry may be used as an office or mudroom. Upstairs are 2 full bedrooms with charming cubbies and built-in shelving. A cement back patio and rock fireplace are ideal for entertaining, and the south-facing covered front porch is perfect for coffee in the morning sun.
