Garden lovers will flock to see this downtown classic in the Southwest part of the City of Ithaca! First time offered on the market since 1987, these owners have lovingly maintained this 2-story for the next generation of Ithacans. From the welcoming wide front porch to the hardwood floors in the living/dining room, there's 'just enough' space for downtown living. A large window in the dining room overlooks the backyard garden. The kitchen was remodeled in 2016 with bamboo floors and granite counters. Most appliances newer since 2018 including washer/dryer. Several newer windows in 2021. Half bath on the main level and 3 beds and full bath upstairs. There's also a sweet sitting area in widened hallway up. Plus don't miss the walk-up attic! The basement has laundry & workshop space. There's a detached shed/workshop as well - fun fact: this property was previously the Machans Florist Shop! Spend some time wandering the garden paths & enjoy the impressive linden tree. So very sweet!
