If you are not familiar with this neighborhood, you are in for a treat. It's adjacent to Balboa Park and a short stroll to the popular South Park Village. This particular residence commands the generous corner lot of 29th and Ivy, where you'll be thrilled to discover an unexpected magical canyon behind the privacy wall. The structure features craftsmanship and architectural details that will delight the senses. You'll be greeted by an entry courtyard, leading to an entry hall that anchors the house. A bright expansive living room with hardwood floors, fireplace, ceiling detail, and built-ins awaits you to the right. As does a ground floor bedroom with ensuite. Straight ahead is a formal dining room, also generously proportioned, and next to a sensible kitchen that includes a breakfast nook. The stairs that lead to a seriously spacious second bedroom with ensuite, and a private patio with serene canyon views, awaits you to the left of the entry hall. This stunning property also includes a laundry room, 2 car attached garage, and multiple secluded patio areas. This property has been lovingly upgraded and maintained, inside and out. And for those who absolutely must have a third bedroom, there is potential to reconfigure the floor plan to make that dream a reality. 2879 Ivy Street is a captivating, unique property that some fortunate new owner will be proud to call home.
