Welcome home to 1212 East Barcelona Place. This adorable two bedroom home is a beautifully updated starter home and move-in-ready for the buyer who wants their own private space and doesn't want HOA dues. From the private street with the most charming cottages lining the road to the twinkling cafe lights strung from roof to roof, this special community feels like you've stepped into another world. This Spanish-style cottage has been dialed in with thoughtful details and modern conveniences. Wood floors throughout, coved ceilings with recessed lighting, wood shutters, central air conditioning and heat, a new tankless water heater and a newer roof are just a few of the upgrades and features that make this home so special. A welcoming living room with an abundance of windows and an electric fireplace is the heart of this home, connected to the stylish dining room complete with an ebony accent wall and damask wallpaper. The modern farmhouse kitchen is fully remodeled in tones of black and white with a deep farmhouse sink, black granite counters, black and white Talavera tile, open shelving and inside laundry. The bathroom echoes the same vintage modern design sensibility with black and white Talavera tiles, a pedestal sink, white brick facade walls, and open shelving. The primary bedroom is tucked away near the rear of the house with access to the side and rear yard via a glass paneled door that lets in light while providing privacy. The side yard is the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee and welcome the day. The rear yard has a dog run with artificial turf and the west-facing side yard is a sanctuary to watch the sunset. The home has a reserved parking spot at the front of the home and guests and visitors have ample street parking on Alamitos, Orange or 16th st. Close proximity to downtown shopping and dining, Ocean Boulevard, Alamitos Beach and freeway access.
