Classic Turn of the Century Restored Home in Orem

This is one of mine and Ambers recent listings. It's currently under contract but so cute I just had to share. The original home was built in 1900. The additions of bedrooms came in the 1920's or 1930's. The home originally had the family room kitchen and bathroom. No bedrooms at all and a whole family lived there! In fact one of the children raised in the home  still lives within throwing distance!
Many of the homes original features are still in tact! It does have the updates we can't live with out now! like air conditioning!
It's very easy to see the owners love their home and are meticulous in it's care. The inside is gorgeous and the landscaping is lush mature and organic!

3 BD/ 1 Bath 1052 sq. ft..21 acre lot $147,500.

I just showed a great little house for sale yesterday. Great location near million$+ homes. Right in the center of town but feels like your tucked away up in the canyon! 1904 sq. ft. 4 BD 1 3/4 Baths. .33 acre lot. Built in 1944

Fully Remodeled. One Great thing to see was the original metal cabinets! They have been refurbished and look fantastic! The kitchen has been remodeled but holds onto it's original charm. They've even gone for the Retro Boomerang Formica.

Tons of Built in Storage in this home as well. Plenty for display and storage options. The master has 2 Full size Closets as well which is uncommon for this time period.

New roof, paint, carpet, windows and a lot more! Perfect if you love the charm of an older home but are not up for the work and money of a renovation.

My favorite feature of this home beyond the cabinets is the Rock Wall with Fireplace in the Living Room. There are recessed lights and feature lights to accent it as well.

Huge lot. The back is anopen slate. The front has gorgeous trees shading the front and nice perennials in the landscaped beds.

Great Price for a move in Ready Home in a Desirable Area!
