Welcome to this spacious home in the heart of Broadview. There are so many characteristics to love about 50’s era homes. The most desirable features include large picture windows, spacious living spaces and hardwood floors. This home has all of those traditional elements.
The generous living room is anchored by a gas-burning fireplace flanked by charming book shelves. The dining area can easily accommodate a large table. Just think of the amazing sit-down dinners you could host. The kitchen was updated in the early 2000s. The chef in the home will enjoy gas cooking, lots of cabinet and counter space and second prep sink. There is a sunny breakfast nook with French doors leading to the back deck and yard. The home also features a desirable layout with three bedrooms on the main level. The bedroom wing is removed from the main living spaces making it feel more private and quiet. The main floor bathroom was also updated in the early 2000s.
You will appreciate the multiple uses of the lower level! This space is as large as the main floor. This level could be used as an income generating one bedroom apartment with separate entry. It would also make a large media and entertainment space. Your guests will love the privacy of the 4th bedroom on this level, which features a large walk-in closet and attached full bath.
The outdoor space offers plenty of room for gardening and play space. The detached garage was converted several years ago to finished space. Featuring built-ins, this would be a great work from home option. This would also make a fabulous workout room or artist studio. The options are endless!

Not far from this home is Dunn Gardens. This is a privately owned 7.5-acre property composed of the remaining acreage of the estate of Arthur G. Dunn Sr., who made his fortune in the fish cannery business. Dunn bought the property in 1914 as a summer get-a-way for his family, and contracted the landscaping to the Olmsted Brothers. Upon his death, the property was inherited by his children. His son Edward B. Dunn provided for the care of his share of the estate in his will. A trust was created two years after his death to oversee the entire property. Dunn Gardens were listed on the National Register of Historic Places on December 15, 1994, and are open for special public events and docent-led guided tours April through July, and from September through October.
