1003 Magnolia Ave, Croydon.

Remember the scene in the 1971 film version of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, where the title character opens a tiny door in a closet and leads his guests into the vast expanse of confection-making wonders?

Stepping from the porch of 1003 Magnolia Avenue, Croydon, to the inside of this 2019-remodled rancher is something like that. The interior footprint feels much larger than the exterior infers.

The spacious living room has custom-wood wainscotting whose white coat of paint provides a nice contrast to the hardwood floor.

..

The kitchen puts appliances and workspace close at hand, again without feeling cramped. The easy access to the eating area makes for low-effort serving and clean up.

.

.

The master bedroom is another example of how this home offers a lot for a little. Rather than seeming oppressively large and imposing, it feels intimate and informal without coming off as cramped.

.

.

The sun room is both air conditioned and heated, enabling year-round enjoyment. The three-wall windows provide great views of the backyard, which includes an entertainment-ready fire pit.

.

.

1003 Magnolia Avenue, Croydon, has two bedrooms, one bath, an attic, recessed lighting, and a first-floor bedroom, all for $276,000.
