As soon as you step through the arched trellis and cross the bridge over Butcherknife Creek, you realize you are experiencing something truly special. Located just 3 blocks from downtown on a quiet side street, this property boasts the ideal Old Town setting offering both convenience and privacy. You are immediately drawn to the creekside stone patio with steps leading directly to the waters edge, but don't stop there. Continue around either side of the house to the backyard and you will find a private garden sanctuary. Stunning terraced stone gardens are full of plants with a purpose including edible, medicinal, fruit trees and pollinator varieties. Follow the path up the terraced hillside to a garden patio and a vegetable garden. Comfortable and inviting, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath home has classic Old Town architecture and lots of charm. Beautiful original wood and stain glass front door sets the tone as you cross the threshold. Gorgeous and uniquely stylish original wood trim throughout. The kitchen perfectly blends new upgrades with original features including a fully restored 1952 Chambers range/oven and new quartz and butcher block counters. Incredibly amazing master bedroom with ensuite bath, a large walk-in closet and windows on 3 sides offering views to Buff Pass and the therapeutic sound of the creek below. The unfinished basement provides an abundance of storage and workshop space. New roof and new gas furnace in Oct 2020. All of this nestled under a canopy of large old growth shade trees creates a very comfortable and protected living environment no matter what the season. This is the opportunity you have been waiting for, let it be yours!
