Oversized 2-car, detached garage has covered porch

Contributing Writer

Sitting up three steps from the sidewalk along the one-way avenue of the Dayton Eastern Hills neighborhood is this aluminum and frame Cape Cod.

Listed for $49,900 by Domescik and Associates Inc., the two-bedroom home, at 1738 Tuttle Ave., has about 1,075 square feet of living space with potential room to grow. The house sits on a full, unfinished basement and has walk-up attic access off the living room. The property has a fenced back yard, front covered porch and an oversized, two-garage, detached garage with a covered porch and alley access.

Several updates have been made to the house, including an updated gas furnace and central air conditioning in 2016, vinyl windows throughout, updated entry doors, laminate and vinyl flooring throughout, glass block windows within the basement and an overhead door for the garage. The garage has a rear service door, loft storage, drywall side walls, electric and an electric opener.

Formal entry to the home opens off the covered front porch into the living room, which has three windows and wood laminate flooring. Tucked off into one corner of the living room is a carpet-covered stairwell that leads up to the attic. A door at the top of the stairwell opens into the attic, which has some wood-plank flooring and two vinyl windows. There is space enough to finish the attic into additional living space.

A circular hallway off the living room provides access to the other areas of the home, including two bedrooms, a full bathroom, the kitchen and the basement.

The kitchen has vinyl flooring, a picture window, room for a dining area and a wall of cabinetry, which includes a double-sink below a window. Additional cabinetry surrounds the refrigerator nook and a side-entry door opens to a stoop-step and concrete walkway that leads to the covered porch of the detached garage.

Both bedrooms have two windows, wood-laminate flooring, overhead light fixture and a single-door closet.

The full bathroom has faux tile surrounding the combined tub and shower, which has glass sliding doors. There is a single-sink vanity with matching medicine cabinet and hanging cabinet.

The basement has several glass block windows and the mechanicals, including the laundry hook-ups, are tucked off to one side allowing for possible finishing for additional living space. The washer and dryer are included with the sale of the house, and there is a wash tub. The basement has a concrete floor.
