Gardening possibilities are endless & buyer will have a head start! Grapes, berries, herbs, a stunning palette of colorful perennials & more! Sustain your grocery bill with food from your very own garden! The newly gated side yard is perfect for backyard chickens or bee-keeping & includes last season’s addition of a Better Built Shed with custom rain barrel & gutters. A great opportunity for urban farming! Recently updated covered deck overlooks the beautiful yard & gardens. Additional side deck for bbq, entertaining & interaction with whatever critters you choose for the “back-yard farm”.

Large Basement is mostly finished: dry-walled & wired with large work bench, tool storage & 3 section industrial stainless sink – great for garden work, screen-printing & more. *Bonus – Finished Music Studio space in basement. You won’t disturb neighbors even with loud drums – excellent for recording music, voice overs, or just jamming out with friends! Recent improvements: Newer Architectural Gas-line to house, stainless steel gas range in kitchen, on-demand gas tankless water heater & gas stove in living room. Newer energy-efficient windows.

WHAT WE LOVE ABOUT THE HOME … Well cared for home with great energy. Fresh, modern paint & plenty of light. Beautiful views – secluded but minutes away from amenities, walk out the door to several parks & trails; functional outdoor & indoor space – cool in the summer, warm & well-insulated for the winter. The gorgeous yard was originally designed by a master gardener & maintained with love ever since. Newly built cedar raised garden beds at the corner of the yard (lined with hardware cloth), filled only with organic soil & amendments. Tremendous value when compared with a similar view/lot/house in Springfield/Eugene.
