This is a unique opportunity to live on 1/2 an acre, only one house back from Mill Ave! This property is privately nestled in a leafy neighborhood, one block from ASU Tempe campus and Gammage Auditorium. The complete remodel in 2013 converted this 1740 square foot ranch house into a 2/3- bedroom home with a family/media room, in which the 3rd bedroom was used as an office with an external entrance to the front patio. This modern home is equipped with solar PV panels, a solar hot water heater, aTesla EV charger and a standing-seam metal roof. The understated curb appeal will welcome you immediately with lush, mature landscape in a quiet, peaceful setting. The exterior exudes 50's charm, but step inside and be wowed by the contemporary features of the spacious vaulted living area. The A-frame ceilings are sanded plywood with a whitewash finish; the exposed wooden beams, bamboo floors and LED cable lighting complete the semi-industrial vibe. The exposed brick feature wall is subtly lit by matching sconces, creating an inviting entry area. Extensive glass areas merge the indoor space with the greenery of the generous private yard. The open yet cozy kitchen offers custom cabinetry with a zebra wood finish, concealing a reverse-osmosis under-sink system. The convenient drawer refrigerator and microwave were installed to allow for the upper wall space to support attractive open shelving and a spot-lit art installation. It's the vibrant Italian Millefiori Vetrazzo countertops in teal that are going to make you swoon though! The green Millefiori countertop in the laundry is similarly dazzling; you'll enjoy doing laundry in this beautiful space, which opens onto the back patio through a full glass door. Both bathrooms feature stunning glass tiles imported from Italy in colors complementing the custom shelving and Millefiori Vetrazzo. The living-dining area opens to an expansive covered patio and sparkling pool via three sets of French doors. French doors in the master bedroom also lead to the secluded verdant 20,369 square foot lot, created by combining two lots; it is flood irrigated and supports mature fruit trees, abundant palms and a tranquil fishpond. The outdoor redesign replaced aging concrete surfaces with stone pavers and added charming bridges over the irrigation canals. The large carport was resurfaced with paving stones and a compacted quarterminus driveway was installed. Bougainvillea was liberally planted to showcase spring color, as were delightful yellow rose vines along the driveway. Parkway is a tree lined lane with freshly planted ash trees, enjoyed by joggers, dog-walkers and great blue herons fishing in George Ditch. You won't want to miss the opportunity of owning this special home on 1/2 an acre lot easy walking distance to Tempe's many attractions: stroll around Tempe Town Lake or hike up A Mountain; browse the art festival or join an event at the beach. Forget parking woes: imagine walking home after a night out on Mill Ave or after a Broadway show at Gammage Auditorium! It's not just a home, it's a lifestyle.
