Set back from the street, mix it with a hint of Mediterranean influence and a commanding street presence, and you have 273 Minerva! The hallmark of full-five homes of this era were classic period details, including a bungalow fireplace, built-ins and wood floors. The versatile floor plan includes an entryway, living room, formal dining room, two bedrooms, one bath and a large kitchen with breakfast area. The owners of this home have done some nice upgrades, including the kitchen, generous decks on each level that connect the house to the south-facing garden, and permitting two rooms at the garage level that they used like a family room. A large garage with extra storage and the laundry area complete the street level floor. The location is convenient to public transit, freeways and the Minnie and Lovie Ward Rec Center.
