Description:

Tucked beneath a welcoming canopy of shade trees and featuring a deep front yard, 438 Arricola Ave boasts a marvelous, inviting wraparound porch just waiting for you to enjoy. With over 300 square feet, this quintessential porch will serve as your outdoor living and dining room for most of the year. The traditional cottage facade holds timeless appeal, but step inside, and you’ll discover a contemporary home designed for modern living.

Soft natural light streams through an abundance of windows in the main gathering and dining area, which spans the width of the house. The living space is centered around a cozy fireplace, while the dining room is separated from the large kitchen by a seating bar. This generous open arrangement makes daily living and hosting guests equally seamless. The size and versatility offer myriad possibilities for seating and furniture arrangements, allowing you to mix and match to suit your style and needs. Ample cabinets and counter space allow you to spread out in the kitchen and enjoy meal prep with ease. The 5-burner gas cooktop can handle a menu for a large group, so send out those invites now! A large pantry closet is conveniently located next to the side door, which opens to the driveway for easy access on grocery shopping day. The laundry room, complete with additional storage, is situated in the hallway leading to the sleeping quarters and family room at the back of the house.

On the left side, you’ll find the guest bath and an adjacent bedroom. This guest room features a large walk-in closet and expansive wall space, perfect for accommodating a king-sized bed. The main bedroom serves as a peaceful retreat any time of day, boasting a private bath and another generous walk-in closet. Recently renovated, the bathroom features a tiled shower and an oversized single vanity. Positioned on the shady side of the house, this bedroom is ideal for sensitive sleepers.

The hallway leads directly into the expansive 29′ x 11′ family room, situated at the center point of the space, offering clear visibility for potential division into two rooms if needed. Windows on three walls invite the outdoors in, while the horizontal wood fence in the backyard ensures great privacy. This flexible space is ready to accommodate whatever your imagination conjures up—whether it’s another bedroom, office, home gym, or craft room, the possibilities are endless.

On the north side of this spacious room, a side door opens to the carport/workshop and then wraps around the house to the yard. The long driveway extends from the street all the way to the carport/workshop in the rear corner of the property, creating a paved area inside the fence that will serve perfectly as your sunny patio. With a porch, patio, the area under the carport roof, and spacious front and backyards, outdoor living options abound!

Enjoy an easy stroll or bike ride to the Boulevard, where you’ll discover all the perks of island living. The Boulevard is lined with independent eateries offering everything from subs to tapas to Peruvian cuisine and beyond. Indulge in coffee, acai bowls, tacos, locally brewed beer, chocolates, and visit the great butcher shop for all your grilling needs. Plus, you’re just moments away from the best beach at the State Park, as well as the Amp for concerts, farmer’s markets, and other exciting events. Life here is laid back, so leave your shoes and your stress at the door. Settle down on the porch for some well-deserved downtime…
