An unexpected floor plan. This outstanding home features an open floor plan providing a refreshing divergence from the boring 'squared off' rooms. The bright 2 story entry sits off to the side, adding to the openness. A 1st floor office looks out to the pretty front yard and into the entry through French doors. The living room sits on an angle and looks out onto a large courtyard patio. The adjacent dining room walks out to the patio and both these (semi-casual) formal rooms feature oak flooring and share a pass through fireplace. A wonderful floor plan - practical but not boring. The vaulted 1st floor master has excellent closet space and a private bath with double sinks and separate tub and shower. A spindled staircase leads to an open loft area - perfect for a library, study space, or play area. The three generous bedrooms on the 2nd floor feature ample closets. On the lower level, a partial basement offers excellent storage and is currently set up as a gym. The yard offers the best of many options. Its privacy fenced courtyard creates a simply wonderful secluded patio area while beyond, a grassy space leads to a serene wooded area. Two car attached side load garage. Excellent schools and city services. Fabulous library and city pool. Wonderful neighborhood with mature trees, well kept properties, and low Lorain County taxes. Easy access to shopping, parks, and freeways. Quick to downtown Cleveland as well as Lorain and Elyria.
