Quirky central city charmer asks $330K

Bungalow on the edge

small wood-frame 1930 house painted faded yellow, porch in front, white trim
4800 Clarkson Avenue

This little bungalow has the sort of shabby chic common to the Hyde Park neighborhood, which it’s on the edge of, though it doesn’t quite make the official boundary cut.

The decor caught our eye and qualifies as Hyde-Park-like quirk as well. Nevertheless, it’s on Clarkson, the cute ‘n’ quirky street in a kind of DMZ that runs along the railroad tracks adjacent to Airport Boulevard, and thus both convenient and sometimes bustling.

The one-story house measures 1,000 square feet and has two bedrooms and one bathroom. Built in 1930, the home features wood floors throughout, except in kitchen and bathroom, which have their own funky style.

There’s an open living, dining and bonus room that could work for a home office, study, or play area. The kitchen was upgraded a few years ago with new cabinets and counters. The master bedroom has vaulted ceilings, a skylight, and generous closet space.; the bathroom features floating cabinets, tile floors, and mosaic tile on the vanity and one wall.
