The listing’s virtual tour might provide a complete picture of this Albany bungalow’s sun-filled, timeless interior…

…and, it solves the mystery as to how this compact 1920s Craftsman could possibly have five bedrooms. Before the big reveal, though, let’s take a look at the main common areas of the 1,546-square-foot home, which starts off with an inviting rocking-chair front porch, followed by a bright living room that includes a brick fireplace with woodstove insert…

…accessible to a spacious dining room, where a window to the attached kitchen makes serving family meals easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy.

The kitchen itself might be small, but it doesn’t skimp on the storage. Just make sure you get yourself a step ladder if you’re under 6’9″.

Three of the home’s five bedrooms are on the first floor, each with closet space, with a remodeled bathroom situated at the end of the hallway…

…while, upstairs, there are two more bedrooms, one of which comes with storage. There are wood floors throughout the first and second floor,. as well as Craftsman details galore like vintage hardware, original window trim and doors, and cast-iron radiators.

As you’ll see when you take the virtual tour, two of the downstairs bedrooms and one of the upstairs bedrooms are quite small, more suited for a small study, office, guest room, nursery, or studio/craft room. However, like most Craftsman bungalows, this one makes efficient use of its available space by including a dry lower-level basement. There’s even a detached two-car garage on the .15-acre property.

The Albany area provides the perfect hunting grounds for affordable homes, and this one is located in a quiet residential neighborhood about four miles west of Albany’s city center.
