Lets talk about about the cool stuff! Like a specifically designed cross-fit gym in a 22 foot by 22 foot detached masonry "garage", with 15 foot high ceilings, glass doors that fill the room with sunlight, a separate heating system,... and with the flexibility to be readily converted into a 2+ car garage. Conveniently located in the charming Old Irving community, this lovely 4 bedroom, 3.1 bath masonry home has excellent access to public transportation, highways, and shopping. Total gut renovation in 2011. Newly painted throughout, with new carpeting in master bedroom, as well as the lower level family room. Fresh and bright, many windows have gorgeous plantation shutters. A baker's dream kitchen with marble countertops and full marble backsplash, stainless steel appliances, wine refrigerator, 42 inch shaker cabinets, a casual breakfast bar, loads of storage, and a pantry area. 1st and 2nd floors with 9 foot high ceilings. The staircases are bathed in natural light from an adjacent three-story lightwell. The rear yard has a covered deck off of the kitchen, a great place to sip a beverage while staying cool and dry, and a brick paver patio with a built-in grill. Complete privacy is yours in the totally enclosed backyard with a new 6 foot high, attractive and durable white PVC fence.
