About 17220 Hemmingway St

Cul-de-sac location for this updated single story 3 bedroom plan that includes a large family room. With 2 full baths and a two car garage, this charming house has a classic front porch entry with subtly impressive curb appeal in a striking blue and white color scheme. The house was built new in 1983 in a well-established mid-50s neighborhood, with a modern spacious floor plan that has the ideal amount of openness - pitched ceilings in the combination living/dining ‘L’, a view all the way through to the big family room in back, but with a properly separated kitchen (who really wants to cook in the middle of their living room?) and the bedrooms on a private hallway. There are lots of closets and cabinets, inside side-by-side laundry (gas and 220 electric), central air, primary bedroom with bath, inside access to the garage, breakfast nook, hard-wired ceiling fans, two skylights, convenient details possibly not expected in older houses in this price range. Note the beefy front and side entrance doors, with heavy glass screen doors with openable screened glass. Nothing here says 'cheap'. The house has been thoroughly upgraded, in a warm traditional and elegant style not always seen today. Lots of wood, starting with real tongue-and-groove solid hardwood floors (Brazilian Walnut, one of the hardest woods available). The kitchen is magnificent, with classy Kraft Maid cabinets with solid raised panel doors, triple crown mouldings, granite counters, high-end Samsung range and dishwasher. Cabinets are carried through to the breakfast area. Windows are heavy-frame double pane vinyl with low-e glass. The lot offers an unusually wide easterly side yard, with potential for deep RV/boat parking or expansion of the house (Junior ADU?). Now, it's block-wall enclosed with lawn and mature bougainvillea. Truly out of the ordinary! Pre-fab fireplace should be considered decorative, seller has not used it.
