Adorable Hyde Park cottage asks $529K

Genteel 1922 home retains historic features

This just-listed home is exactly what we envision when we hear the words "Hyde Park bungalow." Built in 1922, it has the front porch, vintage doors, wood floors, built-in cabinets, and other charming features of the era. Luckily for the buyer, it also has updated electrical and plumbing systems, as well as the kitchen and bathrooms.

There’s a two-bedroom, one-bathroom main house that measures 1,316 square feet on the property as well as a detached one-bedroom, one-bathroom garage apartment with alley access.

The downstairs garage is heated/cooled and can do double duty as on office or studio, while the other garage space contains the laundry facilities. While the home is in the historic Hyde Park neighborhood, it is not a historic landmark. However, the listing includes the information that the main house could be expanded and that architectural drawings that are compliant with historic district zoning for a second-story addition are available.
