A favorite downtowner, this historic cottage was built in the late 1800s by Lucy Abbott, for whom the neighborhood is named. Previously located on the grounds of her mansion just down the street, it was moved to its present location in 1989. Located on an oversized lot with a seriously big back yard - you can add a pool, garage and guest house. A stately tree offers welcome shade for the wide front porch and a deep overhang keeps you dry even if an errant rainstorm stops by.Swing open the red door and step into the living room with 11.5' ceiling, exposed brick chimney and honey-hued wood floors. Generous dining room tucked between living room and kitchen has easy flow when entertaining friends and family. A sunny room courtesy of 4 windows, it too enjoys a high ceiling and expansive wall space for displaying art. Front bedroom is deep with space enough for a small sitting alcove by the front window. An updated bathroom is off a short hall by the sunny 2nd bedroom which overlooks the large backyard. This bedroom has private access to the hall bathroom. Kitchen (and laundry closet) runs along the back of the house with an eastern exposure for great morning light. Pass-through window to the living room keeps you connected during meal prep but the generous kitchen has room for a table with 4-6 seats, so friends can hang out with you. French doors open to the screened back porch where al fresco dining will be a regular thing. Watch the sun rise with morning coffee and then later say hello to the moon over a cocktail. Owner planted a stand of clumping bamboo 21 years ago and it's turned into a fan-shaped focal point where you can hear music when there's a breeze. If gardening is your passion, your green thumb will twitch with glee at this sunlit garden. Nuts and bolts info includes recent metal roof, updated mechanicals and new foundation when house was moved so there's no worry here. Galleries, restaurants, wine bar, waterfront and more are 1-4 blocks away - sweet!
