This two-story Hyde Park home takes an interesting approach to new building in the historic neighborhood. On the outside, it’s a mortar-and-wood contemporary that roughly approximates surrounding homes from the 1930s and -40s homes typical of the area.
Indoors, however, it looks like an old industrial building—perhaps from a past century—converted into a loft. There’s exposed brick galore, as well as ceiling beams and ventilation ducts—the kinds of things builders often choose to hide in new construction—as well as industrial-style pendant fixtures, lots of them, and other industrial touches.
There’s also a bit of a farmhouse vibe, with paneled interior and exterior doors, 8-inch baseboards, and a wood-ceilinged patios. In addition to its three bedrooms and three bathrooms, the 2,490-square-foot home features a fireplace, floating staircase, and bathrooms and a kitchen with popular contemporary features and fixtures, including marble floors and granite countertops. It’s also prewired for automation, so there’s that.
There’s a whole different wonderland outside that includes things like an outdoor kitchen with built-in barbecue and crawfish/shrimp burner and a sprinkler system. It all sounds pretty sweet, but will it prove to warrant its $1,199,999 price tag?
