People continue to come up with imaginative ways to redo the homes in Windsor Park and University Hills, once suburbs built largely during the 1950s and 1960s, and now considered booming parts of the central city.
The remodel of this house, built in 1967, takes an unusual approach, splitting the difference between midcentury modern elements and a tasteful, swinging ‘70s vibe.
The use of a slatted wall to enclose the front patio is a visual standout and an effective way to create welcoming outdoor space. The home measures 1,881 square feet and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, along with two living and dining areas. It also features bamboo floors, a fireplace, upgraded bathrooms and kitchen, and a large double garage.
Located on a half-acre lot, the house has picture windows and French doors opening on to a giant back yard with 8-foot privacy fencing. If that’s not enough greenery, it’s two blocks to Bartholomew Park and walkable to the Mueller development, which has trails, ponds, and, of course, shopping.
