Coastal Cutie! Prepare to be charmed by this vintage Balboa beach cottage that holds endless possibilities. With great "bones" all you need is a little imagination to turn this adorable two bedroom home into your dream beach getaway. A welcoming Dutch-door entry opens to the sunny living and dining areas accented by hardwood floors, a brick fireplace, and an old-time wooden ladder accessing a vaulted loft area above. The adjoining remodeled kitchen features abundant storage, newer stainless steel appliances, and is open to the living and dining area via a breakfast bar counter. Two bedrooms are located on the main level and a sleeping loft/office above with an adjacent outdoor balcony. A vaulted attic space can be accessed from the loft area. Outside the back courtyard also functions as parking and there is a commodious covered storage area and beach shower. Best of all the sunny front patio has views to the water and is perfect for al fresco dining or sharing a glass of wine with friends. Tucked way in one of Balboa Peninsula's best "hidden gem" locations - just steps from the bay front and the beach, as well - this home is ripe for a stylish remodel or rebuild. An opportunity not to be missed! **SFT does not include front porch that was enclosed in the 1980's.
