Description:

Instant gratification is a rare thing indeed, but every so often you get lucky and everything falls into place. 115 Washington St checks all the boxes on your list if you’ve been craving a downtown cottage with a splendid view of Lake Maria Sanchez on one side and a 27’x 12′ pool on the other. In between, there’s a supremely comfortable circa 1926 house with a total renovation/addition from 2014. Original details fuse seamlessly with contemporary appointments so you have the best of vintage and modern happily present throughout.

Open the gate on the street side and a large pavered patio embraces the swimming pool. Ample room for various seating areas, grilling and dining al fresco. Flower boxes along the privacy fence let you flex your green thumb without breaking a sweat so say goodbye to the lawn mower forever.

A small covered porch opens up to the entry foyer and a mudroom nook perfect for stowing your shoes, sunhats and backpacks. En-suite, the main bedroom is tucked away off the entry. A tranquil space at day’s end, double French doors let you sneak out for a midnight swim. 2 walk-in closets means no sharing and the large laundry closet is here too. Fully tiled bathroom is black and white with a walk-in shower and custom vanity.

Heading back to the foyer, the kitchen and the gathering rooms unfold before you. This is one of the smartest kitchen designs with a wealth of storage and prep space along with a soothing view of the lake straight ahead. Soft-close cabinets, pull-outs for maximum efficiency, a stepped up breakfast bar providing seating for 4 and keeping your cooking out of sight from the other side – good times and memorable meals will be had here. Living, dining, media and den occupy the entire back of the house. Mix it up to suit your lifestyle – every inch enjoys the water vistas. Gas fireplace will wait patiently for winter to roll around again. 2nd bedroom and hall bath are off the main living area. 3rd bedroom is accessed off the dining room.

Step out on the 2-tiered lakeside deck and stake your claim. This is the magic spot for watching the sunrise and to learn about the water birds who commute back and forth across the lake. Morning coffee, evening cocktails, breakfast, lunch and dinner – every occasion will be special here. A small sidewalk runs the length of the lake so you can meet your neighbors and their dogs without leaving your chair. Direct your gaze to the north and you’ll realize you are only 3 blocks to the heart of downtown where a myriad of architectural and historic gems are waiting to be discovered, culinary offerings to be sampled and art and music to see and hear. Welcome to your new hometown – we think you are going to like it here.
