Birch Street is a charming 3 bedroom 2 bathroom house in Orange. This Orange County property is located on a quiet street, away from the hustle and bustle, just off Chapman Ave. Right at the end of the street is Sycamore Elementary School and El Camino Real Park. The police and fire stations are just a stone’s throw away.
The front yard is nicely landscaped with plants below the front windows, and grass lining both sides of the sidewalk. The large tree out front offers a nice taste of shade.
Both the front and back doors of this Orange County property have screens that firmly lock, so you can leave both doors open to get a nice breeze flowing through the house, and still have the house securely locked. There are also ceiling fans in all three bedrooms and one over the kitchen table as well to help circulate air throughout the house.
Right by the front entrance there are large built-ins for storage. Just by the front door, there is a large area for the living room, or a combination living and dining room. All of the floors are a dark hardwood. There are two windows at the front of the house that bring in the bright, outside light.
Just off to the right are the bedrooms and one of the two bathrooms. Just through the doorway and to the right is bedroom number one. This offers numerous windows and a large built in closet.
The next room down the hall is the bathroom which has a tub and shower combo and a toilet. Just past the bathroom, in the hallway, is a built in linen cabinet. At the very end of the hall is bedroom number two, which also has the same large built in closet and bright windows. Right next to bedroom number two is the master bedroom.
The master bedroom has built in closets that offer a multitude of storage, and the room has wood floors throughout.
The master bath has a toilet and a stand up shower. The bathrooms in this house are placed on either side of the house to make them easily accessible for guests who are either in the kitchen, or the living room (since there is a full bath right down the hall).
You can walk directly through the master bathroom right to the laundry room. This walk through helps to make every room in the house easily accessible from just about anywhere.
The kitchen is located in between the family room and laundry room and is just the right size for a small family. It has a gas stove, white cabinets and a window just above the sink which brightens up the kitchen.
There is backyard access directly from the laundry room. The backyard is a large fenced in area, which gives you privacy on all sides. If you’re worried about storage, there is a large storage shed here too. There is also a large concrete patio which is shaded thanks to the wooden overhang. On this patio is a door which connects to the attached two car garage.
This Orange County property has just the right combination of charm and functionality. It is perfect for any small family. It gives you the space and storage, while also offering the outside space for entertaining or for kids and pets to play.
