229 S Vassar St, Wichita, KS 67218  

Seller has just lowered the price by $5,000!! If you have always dreaming of living in College Hill, this is the opportunity you have been waiting for! 229 S. Vassar is a charming Cape Cod home with amazing character! The front door is beveled glass and takes you into a transition area which then leads to the foyer. The first thing you will notice is the gorgeous hardwood floors which have just recently been refinished and run through the entire main level. There are glass French doors from the foyer which open into the 22' x 15' living room. The focal point of the living room is the wood-burning fireplace with a gas starter. The fireplace surround is "Batchelder" tiles. Ernest Batchelder was a renowned craftsman of the 1920's and his tiles are considered a work of art. There are actually a total of four fireplaces (2 of which are Batchelder) plus a wood burning stove in this home! The main floor master bedroom suite includes an "in-suite" full bathroom. There is a second large suite bedroom and full bath on the main floor. Something that is almost impossible to find in College Hill! The kitchen and dining area have a wood-burning stove and all appliances remain with the property. Many of the kitchen cabinets have glass doors which add to its uniqueness! Everywhere you look there are original bookshelves, cabinets, etc. Upstairs are three more flexible bedroom/office/playroom/media room spaces that can be utilized as you choose plus a half bath. The back of the home features a screened in porch/sunroom just made for that morning cup of coffee. Just out the door of the screened in porch you will find a stone patio ideal for cooking out. There is a storage building in the backyard for yard equipment, etc. There is a single car attached garage. If you love living in a neighborhood that offers "walkability", you are located a few short blocks from the College Hill park, shopping and dining. The seller has recently had the hardwood floors refinished
