My Notes

Rare and Beautiful Craftsman Bungalow This charming Craftsman home boasts of both old world class and contemporary comfort. Manicured front yard and graceful stone pillars welcome you to the home. The sumptuous dark wood (Douglass Fir) features throughout the home create a rich, sultry ambience. Stunning 10 ft. coved ceilings, built-in leaded glass bookshelves and stone wood-burning fireplace grace the living room. Hardwood box-coffered ceiling, triple bay window, plate rails and built-in leaded glass hutch in dining room. Oak wood floors with walnut inlay sprawl throughout much of the home. The kitchen has recently been remodeled with granite counter tops, custom cherry wood cabinetry (dovetailed with European hinges), dramatic lighting above and below cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and fabulous vintage O'Keefe & Merritt gas stove. All new electrical and copper piping was added to the kitchen area as well. A bright and airy sunroom is the perfect place to have breakfast or a cup of coffee in the morning. Pergo floored pantry and work space is adjacent to the kitchen as well as a mud room w/sink which faces the large attractive backyard. Inside access to partial basement and washer & dryer. Parking can be challenging in the city yet this home offers a long driveway that extends past the gorgeous brand new fence, creating extra parking for vehicles, RV or boat. The attic area offers two extra bedrooms and a half bathroom (not listed in county record due to lack of permit). The ultimate in convenience is achieved due to the home being close to light rail, freeway exit and entrance, Japan town, New City Hall building and all the rich cultural and entertainment venues that downtown has to offer!

Market guide

Zillow predicts Downtown home values will increase 8% next year, compared to a 7.1% rise for San Jose as a whole. Among Downtown homes, this home is valued 18.6% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 1.2% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Downtown, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 40.5% higher than in San Jose, and 50.5% less than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Downtown home values from rising as quickly as other regions in San Jose.
