When the current owner first moved in, she was excited about the home and it’s yard. “I knew as soon as I walked in, that this was my house. It just spoke to me. I was soooo excited to have my very own space to decorate and fill as I please; I wanted to make it my safe haven, my place of peace and contentment, which I did. I also was thrilled to have room to garden; I had the gardening bug really badly then. I certainly have fulfilled all my gardening dreams on the lot. I hope the buyers enjoy the gardens I’ve established and the beautiful flowers I’ve planted over the years. The lilac border along the back west fence is gorgeous and wonderfully fragrant in the spring.”
Built in 1938, this home offers 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, and a detached 1-car garage and includes 1,344 finished square feet on a .11 acre lot. The property taxes for 2018 are $2,386.
Located in the St. Paul Public School District #625, the neighborhood school are Galtier Community School, Murray Middle School, and Como Park Senior High School.
The seller believes the buyers of this home are sure to appreciate all of the updates. “When I bought the house, it needed a lot of modernization. I have replaced all 21 windows in the home. I ensured the whole house was insulated and replaced the attic vents. I gutted the upstairs and had it insulated, sheetrocked, painted, and carpeted, as well as well as had a large walk-in closet built in.”
“I had the basement split into four rooms to increase the living space, as well as added a walk-in storgae closet. Two of the rooms are now sheetrocked, mudded, taped and primered, ready for a new owner to make them their own. A new roof with excellent shingles was just put up in July. I also added many ceiling fans and a heat exchanger with central air conditioning and an air filtration and moisture reduction system. I uncovered the beautiful hard wood floors on the main floor and had the bathroom walls and floor redone.”
