Tucked at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on Taylor Street, this one-owner home was solidly built by the then Scappoose High School shop class teacher using purchased plans and a commitment to detail and quality.
Easy-care simple landscaping invites visitors in via the winding cement pathway to the front door that has a landing area large enough for wet shoes, seasonal décor or to gather Amazon packages. Tasteful stained glass adorns the front door, and leftover exterior cedar siding adorns the entry walls, upper hall and featured wall in the living room.
Step on up and go straight into the sunny country kitchen including ample pantry storage with deep shelving, stainless steel refrigerator and a “butler’s pantry” style counter perfect for cooling pies or prepping potlucks. Continue to the right into the dining area with a slider to the large wood deck perfect for relaxing, barbecuing and plenty of room for outdoor dining. Just add patio lights! Enjoy a birds-eye view of the generous yard with room for raised garden beds, planting beds and areas for pets and play. The large tool shed is the perfect spot for yard implements!
Our tour continues back into the living space with the brand new carpeting underfoot. The generous living room area feature a brick wood-burning fireplace and oversized picture window overlooking the front yard and street. The original mid-century vibe wall lamp and matching entry pendant stay with the home!
Walk down the hall past a handy double closet to the shared bathroom on the right. The main bedroom on the upper left front corner of the home has a large deep closet, and a ceiling fan for comfort. The right corner bedroom also has a generous closet, and both bedrooms have easy-care laminate flooring.
Down the stairs, don’t miss the large step-in under-stair storage that could easily hold seasonal items, camping gear or other bulky belongings. The gem on the lower level is the huge family room with dual work spaces or extra storage tucked behind closet doors for a homework zone or for crafts and hobbies. A second brick wood burning fireplace in the home means a handy heat source, or just cozy ambiance for movie or game nights. Use the space near the patio for work out center or add a pool table for evening fun! The patio and yard are accessible from the family room, opening up more indoor-outdoor living. The patio is plumbed and has the electrical for a hot tub if desired.
The lower level hall has a large combo laundry and bathroom that has plenty of shelf space behind the door in addition to one more hall utility closet. The new carpet throughout leads to the two lower-level bedrooms, both with large closets and begging for a trip to The Container Store. The end of the hall provides ideal access to the crisp, freshly painted oversized garage which opens into even more options for storage, hobbies and toys, a work bench and more. The left side of the house is graveled for RV and boat storage, and the expansive driveway easily fits 4 mid-sized cars.
Truly there is room for everyone and everything here. Fresh paint and new carpet, new roof and this well-maintained home all create a move-in ready spot for new owners! Personalize the space, make upgrades and changes on your timeline! Enjoy Scappoose living!
