Property Description

Never before on the market, this delightful Brea charmer has been lovingly cared for by the same family for over 72 years! Set on a tree lined street in one of Brea's most loved locations, this impeccable cottage with three bedroom plus an office is a dream come true. An exquisite stone walk leads to the covered porch and then to the interior of this immaculate home. Gleaming wood floors are found through much of the interior and smooth ceilings are found throughout the entire home. The living room offers an abundance of natural light and a wall to wall bookshelf handmade by the original owner, with cabinet doors made of rarely seen combed cedar. A perfectly sized office is found just off the living room and offers a quiet retreat for work or study. At the heart of the home is the newly remodeled kitchen which features new cabinets in crisp white with pull outs, a pantry, two lazy susans, a spice rack, a single basin stainless steel sink, and stainless steel appliances. Quartz counters with subway tile backsplash, plus the detail of a beautiful wood clad hood above the range combine to make a striking statement. The nook is central to both the living and family room and delights the eye with it's fresh shiplap wall. The generous family room features an immense fireplace with hearth and seating, as well as a bank of cabinets perfect for storing games and toys. The primary bedroom is found tucked away off of it's own wing and has direct access to the outdoor dining deck in the spectacular backyard. A beautifully remodeled bathroom presents with new cabinetry dressed with quartz counters, and double sinks. Just across the hall is another bright new bathroom with a walk-in shower. Two more charming bedrooms with storage above the original closets add the function for easy living. The backyard setting brings intimate pathways that lead to destinations that will enchant both the young and old. A sturdy tree house rests in the boughs of a mature tree with beautiful lighting and plenty of comfort. A ride-on stationary train stands on it's own track at the back of the lot. Consisting of an engine, a tender and a caboose, the train features a simulated water tower, gears, valves and sounds. A workshop is attached to the garage, there is a play house with lighting and also a gardening shed. Expansive lawns, abundant gardens and beautiful trees make this private space one you won't want to leave. This captivating home will surely steal you heart!
