Welcome home to the kind of fairytale cottage where you can bed down for a long winter nap.  In typical Moffit fashion, there is a stone veneer front wall and limestone rocks from the river embedded in mortar.  This restored 3 bed/1.5 bath cottage is picturesque:  a nice-sized living room with restored original hardwood floors, and a fully remodeled eat-in kitchen.  The sunny new kitchen has been reconfigured, featuring a coastal blue tile backsplash, white solid surface countertops, new S/S appliances (gas stove), custom cabinets, a large under mount S/S sink, new disposal and plumbing, and gold hardware to add balance and harmony.  Step out onto the oversized backyard deck where there is plenty of room to entertain, with a fully fenced yard for children and family pets.  The property was landscaped with new grading, shrubs, treen trimming and seeded/mulched.  There is a half flight of steps up to two bedrooms and a full bath, with a primary bedroom another half flight up.  The bath has new shower tile, the tub was resurfaced, and there is a new faucet, light, and hardware.  The primary features two closets and a small sitting area.  There is a second lower-level bathroom, laundry (W/D included), dry, open space in the basement for storage or exercise, plus an attached one-car garage. This home is near a bus stop and is located in the Longfellow Historic District zone, within walking distance to a lovely creekside prairie walking path, Longfellow Elementary, Deluxe Bakery, Thoma's Meat Market, and an easy bike ride to campus. There is fresh interior paint and exterior trim, and fun, updated lighting and wiring both inside and out.  This quirky picturesque-looking home is move-in ready and immediately available!
