About 736 Calmar Avenue
This spectacularly-situated Crocker Highlands home is ideally located with close proximity to the Lakeshore and Grand Lake shops, restaurants, historic movie theater, acclaimed farmers market and more. The house is built for comfortable living with enviable views of verdant hills and a functional, surprisingly flexible floor plan. The main level boasts an updated eat-in kitchen adjacent to a gracious formal dining room and elegant living room centered around a fireplace with gas insert, with an inviting and expansive composite wood deck. Two bedrooms and a full bath round out the first floors features, along with a soundproof music room/den that is not included in the measured living space.
Downstairs, accessible via internal stairway or through a separate side entrance, are two more bedrooms, a spacious full bath, and a large family room with kitchenette, which allows the lower level to be used as a separate living space for more independent members of a household should it be desired.
The deep, terraced downslope lot is ready for enjoyment, relaxation, or planting by the next green-thumbed owner.
