In addition, you will now have your own enclosed parking area and yard for your enjoyment. Up to three garage sections are available as part of the rental agreement.

2003 Restoration Project
Huffman Handyman Properties, LLC has restored this late 1800's cottage while modernizing many of the features of the home.

This cottage,located at 1706 E. 4th Street, Dayton, OH 45403 was restored in 2003. Total renovation means new plumbing, electric, roof, appliances, kitchen, bathrooms, plain old everything. Sixteen foot cathederal ceilings in the front room make this unique cottage a dream to see. Restored marble fireplace, hardwood floors, completely wired for home stereo in each room is available from the front room.

Take a look at the glass work above the front entry door, kitchen entry door and the round window in the main bathroom.

The original desgin of the cottage was the front room was used as a bedroom, the bathroom and laundry were another bedroom, the kitchen was the TV room, the master bed and bath were the kitchen and dining area and the second bedroom was the bathroom and laundry area. We flipped the house totally around and made the back bedroom areas very private and the front of the home the activity areas with sixteen foot ceilings.

Enjoy the picture tour and call if you have any questions or would like to see the property for yourself.

Kitchen Area
The kitchen area has all new appliances. The sixteen foot ceiling also compliments the tall upper cherry cabinets. Kitchen includes microwave hood combo, stove, refrigerator, garbage disposal, custom under cabinet lighting, special hanging lights from the tall ceilings and plenty of cabinet space. Key pad security system is located in the kitchen area and is included with the monthly rental rate.

The custom under cabinet lighting makes the kitchen counters very bright and usable for any kind of entertainment. Remember to look at the glass work above the kitchen entry door.

Central Hallway
The original home design never had a hallway in it. We put a central hallway from the front room to the back door. The woodwork in the hallway came from an old farm house located at Fairfield Road and Route 35. The woodwork was restored and installed and compliments the solid oak doors throughout the home. The hallway is carpeted for warmth and noise reduction.

Located in the hallway is a custom backup lighting system should there ever be a power outage. This is just another special feature of this great cottage. Also, a programmable digital thermostat maintains the comfort of the home either by the gas forced air furnace or central air conditioning.

Main Bathroom
The main bathroom is located near the kitchen and the front room. It includes double sink on cherry cabinets, cherry linen cabinet, full size tub and shower with detailed ceramic tile surround. A large oval glass window above the tub adds that special touch. All new plumbing and wiring throughout the home makes problem free and a joy to live in.

Take a look at the round detail window that was covered up in the original home design.

Laundry Room
The laundry room is the next room located in the hallway on the right. Because the older homes have low ceilings in the basement, we put the laundry room on the same floor. It is large enough to accomodate both a washer and dryer. The current dryer hook up is electric but gas can be made available. Also, there is a small closet for brooms and cleaning supplies in the same room.

Second Bedroom
The second bedroom is about 12 x 15 with a large closet. The room has two large full height windows for plenty of natural lighting. This room also has stereo speaker hook ups, which are part of the total home wiring located in the front living room.

Wired permanently in both bedrooms are cable and telephone hookups. A security motion detector is also located in the second bedroom and other locations through out the home.

Master Bathroom
The master bedroom starts with a very short hallway. On the left of the hallway is a walk in closet and on the right is the master bathroom. The master bathroom has a pedistal sink, shower and toilet. It is painted to compliment the colors of the natural woodwork and the master bedroom. The hardwood floors were once the dining room of this cottage. The master bedroom and bath were actually the kitchen and dining room of the past.

Master Bedroom
The master bedroom is about 16 X 15. Two large windows bring in plenty of natural lighting. This room, just like the second bedroom has been pre-wired for stereo, cable and phone. Large natural oak woodwork compliments this very elegiant looking restoration. This room is very spacious because of the location of the walk in close and open wall areas. Security system master is located in the hallway to the master bedroom.

Enjoy the rich old restored oak woodwork. Very few homes can boast the restoration of 100+ year old six inch tall woodwork. Close the doors and listen to the "quiet". The front window has a view of the front garden area and the back window opens into the back yard. Hook up a stereo to the feed box in the front room and listen to the music thru out the home.

Back Hall Door
The back door area is tiled and has both security panels, electrical panels and cable and phone panels for access to all of your wired utilities. The tile floor helps when the rainy and snowy days are here. Complete quiet and comfort is maintained by the central air, thermal pane windows and superior insulation.

Back Yard
The back yard is very private with direct access to your own private garage. The front side yard security is maintained by a locked wrought iron gate. The rear of the yard is completely enclosed with six foot privacy fencing. The lease agreement includes the single stall with the double stall, or even all three stalls availalble. Plenty of yard space, privacy, off street parking and security, make this cottage a unique rental dream.

Available Garage Parking
The rental agreement comes with a single stall garage. Arrangements can be made for either the double stall garage or all three stalls. For an example, a full size Ford Excursion fits in the single stall garage easily. Automatic garage door openers are provided for your convience. Rear alleyway lighting is on during the night.

There is also additional storage above the garage for boxes, bikes, etc. that you may want to keep for future usage.
