About 5413 Coventry Lane

This beautiful home has the feel of a private tree house. Its location on a hill means that it sits roughly a story higher than homes across the street. Both adjacent neighbors are single story homes. The sun sets out the front of the home. It's a lovely place to unwind and watch the sun set and fireflies come out as dusk settles in. The front door is a recent update.

The unique living space is large and open, yet provides opportunity for multiple intimate gathering spaces. The living room has one couch directly across from the gas-log fireplace and is a cozy spot to snuggle into in the chillier months. The TV is stationed between the formal living and family room so it can be  positioned for either room and seen from the kitchen while cooking. Vaulted ceilings in the family room add to the open and spacious feel.

Dining room is well positioned right off the kitchen where none of the mess from cooking is visible from the table. Easily accommodates larger or smaller tables. Plenty of room for buffet or china cabinet. Flex space/office is visible behind the table and the breakfast bar to the left. Lots of opportunities for office or flex room. It could be a study, 3rd living room, game room, play room, exercise room, yoga or art studio, music room, or 5th bedroom. 

Recent kitchen upgrades include: new stainless range, microwave, and fridge; butcher block counters treated with food-grade oil and beeswax; extended bar top; pendant lights; installation of free standing range; new pantry, bathroom and garage doors; and subway tile backsplash. Plenty of storage in this kitchen for food and all your cooking wares.

Access downstairs bath from kitchen and bedroom. Large white octagonal tiles with black dots cover the floors and the shower which has floor-to-ceiling tile and a hand held adjustable shower head.

Downstairs guest bedroom looks out the front of the home and is accessed by a hall behind the front door or through the attached bath via the kitchen. Great for any guests who do better without stairs. 

Large upstairs master bedroom has generous walk-in closet. The solid hardwood floors are throughout the house, including all non-wet rooms upstairs and down. Although a queen bed is shown in photos, it easily accommodates king bed.

Duel vanities and plenty of under cabinet storage make the upstairs bath an easy one to share. Extra deep tub is perfect for soaking. 

Another generously sized secondary bedroom with walk-in closet. Seasonal peak-a-boo views of downtown from front window. The third upstairs bed (fourth total) is currently set up as an office. The desk easily converts back into a traditional closet. This room would make an adorable nursery and fits a queen sized bed. It's the smallest of the 4 bedrooms.

One of the great aspects of two story homes is the amount yard space compared with single story homes on similarly sized lots. This large and very private back yard has lots of potential. There's a mature tree that provides shade and a pomegranate tree growing behind the shed. Backyard of only one neighbor is visible and would be easy to cover completely with fast growing screening shrubs. 


Downtown views from roof

This property is waiting for a buyer with the imagination to take advantage of downtown views by adding a roof top deck.
