House-hunting for a convenient Fitchburg location in the Oregon School District? Look no further! This 3BR, 1.5 bath home at 2416 West Hill Drive, just off Irish Road, may be exactly what you’re looking for. Situated on a .49 acre lot, this National Folk/Farm style home is freshly painted and restyled.
You’ll be struck on first sight by the Navy exterior paint set off by white trim and cedar window boxes and shutters. And the interior is updated throughout. Enter through the original birch front door and you’ll find yourself in an open great room with a large front bay window. A convenient coat closet is just inside the door on the left. And the light gray paint and white millwork, makes the room feel light and cheery. But the contrasting rich dark luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring provides just the right touch of vintage farmhouse luxury.
From the great room, you’ll have easy access to the kitchen, bedroom hallway, garage and lower level. Straight ahead is the kitchen. On the way, you’ll pass a large pantry, perfect for extra staples, small appliance storage or whatever you need close at hand — but not on the kitchen counter! Just inside the kitchen is a family dining area lit with a unique bronze pot light fixture. Additional light — and a great view of the backyard — comes from a large window which overlooks a huge partially fenced-in backyard.
The updated kitchen features classic pewter blue painted lower cabinets and white upper cupboards. There’s a new dishwasher, gas range, and a white subway-style backsplash. The room is plenty large enough for a mobile island or coffee/serving bar.
From the kitchen, a hallway leads to the bedrooms and main bath. There’s a convenient hallway linen closet. And the main bath features an even larger linen cabinet for linens, towels and toiletries alike. A jetted tub and shower provide the option for relaxation, depending on your mood. Updated gray tile flooring and a working clothes chute in the original wood, combine with a new modern vanity with extra storage, rustic towel bars, and a large sunny window to complete the look.
A few short steps further down the hall will lead you to the master bedroom. This is a good-sized room with 2 windows that can be covered with both blinds and curtains or left open to let in natural light. There’s also a large closet with sliding double doors. There are 2 bedrooms along this hallway. At the end of the hall, is another nice-sized room with 2 windows and a double closet. This would be perfect as a child’s room or guest room. Heading back toward the great room and kitchen, the final bedroom room is perfect for an office or child’s room. All 3 bedrooms have their original warm golden wood doors.
Back through the kitchen, you’ll find a door leading to the extra deep double garage. There’s space here for storage with even more space available in the exposed rafters above. If you happen to have a dog, your pup is sure to appreciate the convenient dog door that leads to the fenced in yard.
Inside, right across from the garage door, another door will take you down the steps to the lower level to the large multi-purpose family rec room. The stairway is lined with freshly painted charcoal black paneling. You’ll find that color on a rec room accent wall paired with an outer wall of gray faux brick. Both the stairs and this room are carpeted with gray Berber, adding warmth to the space. This is a large area, which could hold not only furniture and a TV for family time, but also leaves room for exercise equipment or a home office.
At the other end of the great room is a retro bar with a mini fridge, stainless steel ice chest bar station and built-in shelving. The highlight is an historic mirror from a downtown Stoughton establishment, set off with historic accent lights.
Across the lower level, on the other side of the stairs, is the laundry utility area. There’s a full-size washer and dryer with wash tub — and here you’ll find the outlet for that handy upstairs clothes chute! Beyond that, there’s a kitchenette, with a double sink, plenty of counter and cabinet storage, and space for an oven and refrigerator.
There are a lot of built-ins down here including a counter with cabinets, perfect for a workshop or craft table.
Also on this level, you’ll find a convenient half bath smartly accented with buffalo plaid wallpaper. The house uses city water but has a private septic system.
