CHARMING ENGLISH COTTAGE JUST TWO BLOCKS WEST OF NOTRE DAME! Exceptional curb appeal, historic character, and warm and cozy ambiance abound throughout this 1935 home, highlighted by unique details including an inviting portico, slate entryway, architecturally-significant archway, artisan crown molding and original stucco walls, wood-burning fireplace, winding staircase, antique milk-glass walls and period ceramic tile, oak hardwood floors, refinished wooden doors, new ceiling fans in every room, and a decorator's touch on quaint selections for paint, drapery, finishes and furnishings. This two-story home showcases high quality building materials, including all clinker brick exterior masonry, a well-maintained slate roof, all new copper ridge caps, gutters and downspouts, and updated windows. It features 1566 square feet of living space on two levels plus an additional 783 square feet in the basement for laundry and generous storage. The open-concept main floor highlights a wonderful flow throughout the updated kitchen, dining room and living room and the upstairs includes three bedrooms and one full bathroom. The living space spills out onto a large deck and lovely Amish-crafted pergola in a private, fenced backyard. Beautiful English garden landscaping punctuates the 8512 square feet of substantial greenspace in this urban neighborhood, including a soaring pine tree, a Japanese maple, multiple flowering (dogwood, redbud and magnolia) trees, perennial flowerbeds, and wrought iron flower boxes adorning the home. Property includes a storage shed and a detached single-car garage as well as a long driveway and turnaround (for abundant parking on game day). Historically-noteworthy deed to the property shows the land deeded from the Potawatomie Indians to Fr. Edward Sorin, CSC, founder of the University of Notre Dame, in the 1860s and it later became part of the University's pig farm, hence very fertile soil! If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind extraordinary charmer in walking distance to the University, this home is the one for you!
