25 MANN AVE., FAIRBORN
Bonus room offers flexibility to floor plan
Updates to the kitchen and a full bathroom enhance the charm of this Cape Cod located just blocks from the downtown district of Fairborn.
Listed for $85,000 by Roost Real Estate Company, the frame home at 25 Mann Ave. has about 1,080 square feet of living space on a full basement.
A large front porch with porch swing greets guests and provides cover for the formal front entry. The updated front door opens directly into the living room, which has a hardwood floor that continues into the central dining room. Partial walls with painted wood caps flank the arched walkway between the living and dining rooms.
The dining room has a bay bump-out with four windows and access to the hallway that leads to the bedrooms and bathroom.
Off the dining room is the kitchen with updated oak cabinetry and countertops that fill two walls. A double sink is below a window and the kitchen comes equipped with a gas range, dishwasher and refrigerator. Vinyl flooring fills the kitchen and into a small hallway that leads to the basement access, a bonus room and rear access that opens out to a deck and back yard.
Two bedrooms and an updated bath are off the hallway from the dining room. The larger bedroom is at the front of the house while the smaller bedroom has access to the bonus room. The bonus room has vinyl flooring and a closet so the floor plan space could be a possible third bedroom.
The full bathroom features a fiberglass-surround shower with extra-deep refinished tub, a pedestal sink with triple-mirror medicine cabinet above and vinyl flooring.
The basement has an elevated full bathroom with walk-in fiberglass shower, a single-sink vanity and vinyl flooring. A former coal bin allows for a workshop area and a bonus room has vinyl flooring, walls, a closet nook and egress window. The bonus room could be a game room or hobby area. The basement has the laundry hook-ups and mechanical systems which include gas forced-air furnace and central air conditioning. A water heater was replaced in 2017.
The house sits on a lot with a deep back yard with concrete walk. A concrete driveway leads from the street to the carriage house, one-car garage with a separate workshop or potting shed attached. The entire house has vinyl replacement windows including the egress windows of the basement.
