The Handley High School Campus is just around the corner from this great 4 square style brick home, built in 1930.  In 2007 the home underwent major transformation by a local craftsman.  The home was brought into the modern era, but with keeping many of the unique features from the 1930s.  The main level of this home features 9’ ceilings.  Crown molding has been added throughout this main level. What  were rear porches, upper and lower, have been incorporated into much needed finished living space. The lower area is now a “butler’s pantry complete with matching cabinetry to the kitchen, wet sink and wine rack.  A ½ bath has also been added.  Wrapping around is the new galley kitchen complete with beautiful cabinetry (tall wall cabinets), countertops, ceramic flooring and backsplash, and table space.  The appliances are stainless steel. A lighting package helps to brighten, but there is plenty of natural light entering this area.  There are also French doors leading to a rear covered porch. That rear swing conveys!  Also on the main level is a spacious diningroom, with fancy crown molding, chair-rail and well placed windows.  This room, and the living room, has original heart pine flooring.  The well appointed formal living room has a wood burning fireplace, and the original lead glassed front window looking out onto the front covered porch.  Off the living room is the front foyer, with a staircase leading to the upper level. The mastersuite is on this upper level.  The converted upper porch now becomes the master walk-in closet,  the laundry area (washer & dryer conveys), and a very nice full bath which includes a tiled shower and separate whirlpool bath and a double bowl vanity. There are 2 additional bedrooms on this upper level, all spacious, and all with heart pine flooring.  Also included is a full hall bath with built-in cabinets in the hall.  From this hall also is a fixed staircase leading to an “attic” bedroom.  This would be a great area for a teen.  Quite spacious but with limited headroom.  This area is also cooled and heated. Below the main level is a full unfinished basement. Not an area suitable for finishing, it contains the furnace, hot  water tank, and an additional hookup for laundry in case you need a second area.  There are two additional rooms here, once containing the double oil tanks for heating fuel, and a room containing shelves for possibly canning storage. This basement is clean and dry.  Access is from within the house only.  The home has oil heat and backup baseboard electric heat for the main level (along with the wood burning fireplace).  The upper level is heated and cooled by a heat pump (forced air).  The home is serviced by public water and sewer.  The exterior is brick with vinyl covered rear area which were formerly porches.  The roof is architectural shingle (installed in 2013).  There is a detached garage ( 1 car ) in the rear.  That is painted concrete block exterior with a new metal roof (2013 also).  Access to the rear garage and single car driveway is by an alley to the left of the home, which also is used by neighbors to park in the rear of their property. There is also ample street parking in front of the home.  Total finished square footage of the home is 2120 sq.ft., with 768 sq.ft. unfinished in the basement.  Annual real estate taxes to the City of Winchester is $1625.  There is no HOA. The price is $329,900.  The MLS# is WI8705135.  Directions to the property:   This home is located at 1207 Valley Ave.  (Rt.11) just down from the Handley High School Campus.  This is between Jefferson Street and Miller Street.  The physical address of the property is 1207 Valley Ave., Winchester, VA 22601    There is a Cedar Creek Real Estate sign posted.
