Renovated Cape Cod has family room, updated bath



Finished upstairs adds to home’s living space

Contributing Writer

This totally renovated Cape Cod has a finished upstairs and a semi-finished basement with possibilities. Located off the Third Street Corridor, this vinyl-sided house has about 1,400 square feet of living space and a one-and-half-car, detached garage.

Listed for $117,900 by McIlvaine Realty, the home at 1504 Rangeley Ave. has been renovated with updated heating and cooling systems, plumbing and electrical service. The house sits on a hill with a picket fenced back yard. There is a roof that covers the walkway between the house and the side-service door of the garage, and the property has a double-car concrete driveway.

Exterior doors and some windows have been replaced, and the formal entry has a leaded-glass front door with matching sidelight. More casual entry opens off the side under the covered walkway behind the picket fence.

Carpeting fills the formal living room, family room, hallway and two bedrooms on the main level. Wood-laminate flooring fills the kitchen and dining area. The living room is at the front of the house and has a picture window. The hallway off the living room leads to two bedrooms and a full bathroom. The front bedroom has two single-door closets.

The bathroom has been updated with vinyl wood flooring, a vanity with an extended sink, and fiberglass tub/shower.

A door off the hallway opens to the upstairs which has been finished into two separate rooms. The stairwell ends in one room which could be a study or sitting room. There are four storage nooks. A door opens into a possible third bedroom which has a closet and a storage nook. The upstairs has carpeting, side windows and angled ceiling with plenty of head room.

Back on the main level, the step-saver kitchen has a peninsula counter with a double sink and hanging cabinets above. The counter divides the kitchen from the family room. Appliances include a range, dishwasher and refrigerator.

A brick, wood-burning fireplace, which is not warranted, is the centerpiece to the family room. The fireplace has a raised brick hearth. There is a picture window that looks out over the side yard and a smaller window that looks over the back yard.

A door from the dining room opens to the basement, which has been semi-finished with a recreation room on one side and the mechanicals on the other side. The recreation room has overhead lighting and a tile floor. Tucked off the unfinished area is a full bathroom with a single sink and walk-in shower with updated plumbing.

The laundry hook-ups are located around the stairwell, and there is a laundry chute off the hallway near the upstairs bathroom. The basement has glass-block windows.
