Arcadia Terrace is a small, quiet neighborhood—most folks know it as part of the larger West Ridge community. It’s right between Rosehill Cemetery (it has a nature preserve) and Legion Park which borders the North Branch of the river so there are lots of places for outdoor lovers.
This home, built in 1943, is common place for the ‘hood—there are lots of bungalows, brick two-flats, and older low-rise buildings. The interior is spacious with a large front living room and bright bay window. The dining room leads into a retro kitchen with red cabinets, black tile, and silvery accents. There’s a beautiful dark wood, enclosed porch that overlooks the backyard, too.
There are three bedrooms along with a bathroom—which has the original blue-grey ceramic tile in great shape. The attic is unfinished, but for the new owners who want to take on a project, it could yield an additional two bedrooms.
Down on the lower level however, the basement is set up for leisure and (at least we’re fairly certain) the occasional jam band session. The low key vibe comes from it’s cozy fireplace, a built-in bar, red vinyl and chrome stools, and colored string lights.
