A remodeled 1939 home we featured in August has dropped its price $25,000, to $550,000.

The adorable limestone house looks well-maintained and balances updates and quirky vintage features quite nicely. Located in the central and storied Hancock neighborhood, it has its original hardwood floors, windows, and two-panel doors with crystal knobs, with contemporary updates that blend right in.

It also has one of the coolest bonus rooms we’ve seen, with old-school paneling and secret door under the stairs.

At 1,638 square feet, it has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, with a big addition and large, shaded yard in back.
