This characteristically Hyde Park bungalow sold for $312,000 in 2011 and five years later hits the market with some creative updates at twice the price. It fronts Duval Street at 44th Street, so it could be a little noisy, but the upside is that longtime local faves Mother's Cafe and Quack's coffee shop are almost literally in your backyard.
The 1,655-square-foot house, built in 1925, has three bedrooms and four bathrooms, with a layout that allows for privacy for roommates or guests: There's a second living area off the master suite, a second bedroom with its own bathroom, and a guest studio with a full bathroom and separate entrance.
The back of the house has been redone with an updated kitchen, vaulted ceilings, and large windows overlooking a back deck and yard. There is also a framed Roky Erickson poster in the bathroom, but we don't know if it conveys.
