Charm And Space At 1515 N 24th Street In Boise
If you love the history and charm found in Boise's North End neighborhood, then you'll love the home at 1515 N 24th Street. With almost 3,000 square feet, you won't have a problem entertaining friends and family in this spacious Tudor home.
The first thing that you'll notice when you enter 1515 N 24th Street is the architectural details, such as the bay window's diamond pattern. Enjoy reading a book by the window, or warm up in front of the large brick fireplace. The warmth of the room translates into a welcoming feeling for visitors and family alike.
Head up the staircase next to the charming built-in shelves. Up here you'll find two bedrooms and a full bathroom. Each guest bedroom has a large walk-in closet, but keep on walking and you'll find even more storage through another door in the closet. In between the bedrooms is a full-sized bathroom with a bathtub.
Make your way back down the stairs, through the living room, and turn left into the first guest bedroom. This room could be a master bedroom option, or a mother-in-law suite. With an attached full bath and access to the inner covered patio, whoever uses this bedroom will feel right at home. Next to the bedroom is a separate half bath, easily accessible in between the kitchen and living room for visiting guests.
The bright kitchen features a spacious breakfast nook that would be great for busy mornings or more intimate meals. Five large windows with the charming lattice detail let the diners enjoy the views of the side yard and front porch.
Additional seating is available at the island bar. A gorgeous tile backsplash accentuates the countertop, creating a vibrant feel to the heart of the home. A tray ceiling detail provides architectural interest. You'll find ample storage in the kitchen thanks to two pantries.
Through the kitchen, past the walk-in pantry, is the dining room/family room. This oversized room is ideal for entertaining. Host dinner parties at a long dining room table or let your guests mingle easily between the two spaces. Built-in bookcases provide space to store books or to display your favorite dishes.
On the other side of the built-in is the large family room. A gas fireplace makes the room feel cozy, while even more built-in bookcases mean you can either store your DVD collection or stash family mementos. A bay window lets in light from the covered patio that overlooks the backyard. A long line of windows not only creates a bright space, but connects the two areas into one sizable common room.
Through the family room, and to the left you'll find the office. This room with closet could also be a fifth bedroom, especially if you require three bedrooms on the first floor. There's plenty of space to either work on your latest projects, or for a guest to relax.
Sliding glass doors leads out onto the covered inner patio. The patio can also be accessed from the front bedroom and the dining room. This would be the perfect place to host outdoor meals during the warmer months. Or, enjoy reading a book while keeping cool thanks to the covered space with ceiling fan.
Past the office, you'll find the master suite. The occupants will have optimal privacy thanks to its location at the back of the house. The en-suite features a walk-in shower and dual sinks. The master bedroom is a serene scene. Enjoy the two windows that bring in natural light, and the his and hers closets.
Between the family room and the master suite is a sliding door that leads out into the backyard. Here you'll find a covered patio for enjoying those warm summer days or rainy nights safe from the elements. Raised garden beds and a greenhouse are perfect for those with a green thumb. The two-car detached garage also houses a separate shop that would be great for working on projects or storing camping gear.
To the left of the home sits a side yard that is accessible via both the backyard and a gate at the front of the house. A gorgeous iron gate gives visitors a peek into the side yard, but keeps it a separate space.
