From the gorgeous hardwood floors, to the original tile detail above the fireplace, to the built-in cabinets and ironing board, this home reminds you of days gone by. Yet it is fresh and lovingly maintained, offering the best of both worlds.


This 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 920 square feet home has been thoughtfully remodeled. When you step through the front door, the light and bright living room welcomes you. The wood burning fireplace, with newer mantle, trim and tile surround is perfect for those chilly winter evenings. Already plumbed with gas, you have the option to make it more eco-friendly if you choose. Crown molding and rounded corners on the walls demonstrate the owner’s attention to detail. Forced air heating, with a UV light to purify the air, has been installed for efficiency and comfort.

Plantation shutters in the dining room offer a measure of privacy, while still letting light in. The cozy updated kitchen is highly functional.  There is ample cabinetry, even a pantry!  Corian counters are both attractive and easy to maintain. The gas stove is a must have for home chefs.

Located in the hallway, the bathroom has been updated with modern tile and fixtures. Both the sewer later and water lateral lines have been replaced, so unlike typical older homes, this home boasts great water pressure. The master bedroom offers a door to the backyard - the perfect spot to drink your morning cup off coffee, glass of wine at the end of the day or even install a hot tub. The spare bedroom offers a pass through to the mud room, where the tankless water heater and laundry are located.



There are so many options for the additional living space in the detached 2 car garage as well as the separate detached office... use the space for family, guests, working from home or perhaps an art studio?

The property features an extra wide lot and a side yard, allowing for plenty of room for gardening or for the kids or pets to play. Use the the rain barrels in the backyard to save water for your plants or garden.


Located in the Banana Belt, this desirable neighborhood is known for sunshine and its convenient location. Commuters appreciate the easy access from the highway or multiple routes to avoid getting on Highway 1. Walk to shops or restaurants in Midtown, head over to Arana Gulch or the Harbor to get some exercise, or bike downtown to meet friends.  Everything you need is just minutes away.  

225 Parnell has such a warm and inviting feel. It is a comfortable home with character and modern conveniences. Priced at $950,000, it is ready for you to just move-in.
