Classic 1930's Bungalow, boasting all the charm and light-filled spaces expected in a home of this style, awaits the savvy buyer seeking a positive equity position! One floor living in fine detail: the living and dining rooms graced by hardwood floors adjoin, with the living room featuring an off-set fireplace with brick/tile hearth, while the dining room features period molding details, including plate-rail, chair-rail and wainscoting. The kitchen offers a truly retro experience, but has great space for redesign! Both bedrooms are nicely sized and the bathroom has been refreshed while still staying true to its roots. The full size upper level is raw space awaiting your ideas providing an amazing footprint for expansion. Yard for play or gardening; garage. Nestled in a well-established neighborhood, steps to the Common and Winthrop School, with easy access to the bus, Oak Grove, commuter rail and Melrose's bustling downtown, all coupled with smart equity makes this a sweet opportunity
