Property Description

Enjoy urban living at its finest in this 3-bedroom, 2-bath bungalow in Bloomington near Indiana University, blocks from downtown Bloomington and the B-Line trail. The 1880s restored Rachel Wright House, located in the historic Prospect Hill neighborhood, offers over 1500 sq. ft. of original charm and modern conveniences. From the welcoming front porch, the home opens to a sunlight-filled main level with refinished vintage wood floors and tall ceilings. The living room features a focal-point folk art gas fireplace and leads to two bedrooms—one of which is being used as study—and an updated full bath with Italian tile that includes a stacked washer and dryer. The renovated kitchen has custom cabinets, granite countertops, newer stainless steel appliances, a built-in dining nook and Marmoleum flooring. Upstairs is the 3rd bedroom and renovated full bath as well as a large storage area. The home’s outdoor living space is perfect for entertaining and offers a David Smith-designed cottage garden with limestone accents, a small brick patio, a garden shed and cedar picket fence. In addition to a newer roof, updated electrical and plumbing, and conditioned crawl space, the home offers a high-efficiency furnace and on-demand water heater. There is room to build a garage and plans to do so are attached to the listing. This floor plan is ideal for someone that works from home. Located in the Fairview Elementary, Tri-North Middle School and Bloomington High School North school districts. For more detailed information about this remarkable home, see the attached brochure
