Located on a peaceful street in North Sierra Madre, just a few blocks from Mater Dolorosa retreat center, this lovely Traditional has been home to the same family for nearly 2 decades and it exudes the charm of the small-town of Sierra Madre, a true community that many liken to ''Mayberry''. It is just a few blocks from the highly desired Sierra Madre Elementary School, and the fun downtown - a ''hang-out'' destination including restaurants and charming small-town retailers as well as many parks too, making it the perfect place to enjoy the outdoor activities like the famed yearly Wistaria festival.The home was built in an era when redwood siding, arches, and glass door knobs were the norm. Original phone nook, hardwood floors, bay windows, and a large window seat are just part of the charm of living here at the ''gateway to the foothills.'' There is a large and bright living room, two good sized bedrooms, and a particularly large bathroom for a house of this age. Best of all, for those who long to make this house their own, the bathroom and kitchen are ready and waiting for their personal stamp.Central heating and air about 4 yrs old and newer water heater.A large deck in the private delightful back yard, shaded by a majestic tree, and a drought-tolerant front yard professionally landscaped with fruit trees and beds to grow your own veggies add to the enjoyment of calling Sierra Madre home.
