Not every featured home has to cost a million bucks, nor does it need granite, stainless steel and all the other trendy amenities.
Sometimes you need a simple place that has a good soul, strong bones and enough space to make it your own.
Our featured home this week is at 3 Fairview Ave., on a quiet street.
This colonial was built in 1924 and has a lot of space — 2,590 square feet to be exact. Gas heat and hot water will help you on bills and the hardwood floors, fireplace, partially finished basement and newer windows will help keep you organized, comfortable and free to focus on other improvements.
But perhaps the best feature is the enclosed outdoor patio area. You can enjoy your morning coffee of entertain a friend or two in the evening in a private urban garden space that will make you feel like you're in San Francisco.
