This is the type of neighborhood where squirrels can take afternoon naps in the middle of the street without being disturbed. Where neighbors all know your name and wave as you walk by. Where people are respectful of private property rights. Welcome to Sylvan Park in Citrus Heights.
Many of the homes in this area were built in the '60s and '70s, but the home I am introducing you to today is the desirable 1958 construction from the Leave It to Beaver era.
This delightful ranch home boasts 3 bedrooms, a long galley kitchen open at each end, and a big living room with a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace. It also has an attached garage, which many years ago originally sat apart from the home, separated by an overhang and breezeway.
Because the neighbors' yards have so many trees, the home seems plunked down in the middle of a forest without a single large tree in the yard. You will discover plenty of sunshine in the back yard, beautifully manicured landscaping, a lush green lawn and a sparkling brilliantly blue pool. The pool is gunite construction and it has a diving board. Between the house and garage is a patio, which extends into the back yard, and is a perfect spot for your outdoor dining furniture.
