Meander along a quaint brick pathway to this charming 1924 cottage tucked away off popular Forest Hill Avenue.  Before arriving at this sweet home, let your imagination wander on the possibilities as you cross the expansive front yard.  At first glance, you will notice a large picture window & a glimpse of a built-in window seat…an ideal place to stretch out with a good book or daydream while basking in the sunshine.  Open the door & you will enter an open, front room which can easily accommodate a large gathering, dinner party, & provide maximum flexibility to fit your needs.  True to a cottage-inspired home, it is airy yet intimate at the same time.  Along one wall are a set of space-saving cupboards & a convenient pass-through between the kitchen & dining area for entertaining ease.  During the day, there is plenty of natural light & for those chilly evenings, an inviting gas fireplace provides just the right ambiance for evening entertaining.  Built-ins on either side of the fireplace are ideal to showcase your collectibles. For those buyers who appreciate the character of a 1920s home, the kitchen will not disappoint with its furniture-like cupboard & Wedgewood gas stove.  Custom window screens were carefully replicated to match the original ones to add nostalgic charm.  Delightful checkerboard floor tiles were added for just a little pizzazz.  Eating in the cheerful breakfast area is a great way to start the day.  The side kitchen door accesses both the laundry & a sunny back deck.  Whether sipping a morning cup of coffee, dining al fresco, or enjoying a nice evening glass of wine, the deck provides a wonderful setting to relax anytime of the day.  From this vantage point, one can take in serene hill views & unwind.  There’s also a private hot tub on the lower level.  Similar hill views can be enjoyed from the master suite which offers both vintage & modern aesthetics.  The built-in storage, generous baseboards & lovely hardwood floors harken back to a bygone era, yet the stylish master bath offers modern conveniences.  Speaking of convenience, this home’s location is a short distance to parks, shops, eateries, & transportation.  Imagine the possibilities!
