Absolutely adorable vintage cottage in the "historic district" of Escondido. This single level home has been tastefully restored and upgraded to keep its historical charm while adding modern features. The beautiful kitchen offers a new custom built center island, floor to ceiling pantry, dishwasher, copper farm sink, reverse osmosis system and a whole house filtration system. Additional interior upgrades include dual pane windows, copper plumbing, new electrical, refinished original wood floors, barn doors & crown molding in living room and all 3 bedrooms plus a ductless mini-split HVAC. A pull-down stair case creates a passage to the bonus finished attic space that serves as a family room / 4th bedroom with lots of storage. Brand new 40 yr. roof, whole house insulation and fully owned roof top solar were completed in 2021. The oversize backyard has multiple fruit trees and is perfect for relaxing or playing on the easy turf grass or entertaining around the firepit. With rear ally access there are endless possibilities including RV parking, space for a detached garage, or even an ADU.
