Indoors: The single-story house has refinished hardwood floors, fresh interior and exterior paint and a roof replaced less than a decade ago. The living room, at the front, includes a brick fireplace. Behind it is a dining room with a bay window and bench, a picture rail and ledge and a built-in hutch. The connecting kitchen includes some original wall cabinetry and wood-patterned flooring.
One bedroom is off the living room; the other is off the kitchen. Each has a closet, and they share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom with a combined tub and shower and a ceramic-tile floor.
Outdoor space: A white picket fence surrounds a front garden containing cactuses and an orange tree. The house has a rocking-chair front porch and a deck off a rear laundry room that steps down to the fenced backyard.
