The Brunsdon-Hendershot House

Craftsman meets Victorian. Linger on the gracious front porch then step inside this charming bungalow and experience: 10-foot ceilings, double-hung lead-glass windows, Victorian picture railing and hardware, combined with a Craftsman built-in buffet, lovely sconces and cute vintage kitchen. This airy home has two large bedrooms plus a bonus room that can be a nursery or office. A historic Mills Act property, it has period details but modern updates such as central a/c, gas-starter fireplace, upgraded electrical and plumbing. Storage abounds in the mudroom, detached laundry and two-car garage, which can be used for arts or entertaining. Large, private backyard features fairy lights and is bordered by lavender and rosemary, and mature fruit trees, including persimmons, oranges, lemons, limes and peaches. A short stroll to Grand Ave. and the heart of Old Escondido’s restaurants, shops, Grape Day Park and California Center for the Arts.
