This two-story home is being marketed as a “modern farmhouse,” a style that’s been popular for the past several years. That’s understandable, since more people are likely to recognize the buzzphrase, but it’s also obscures the fact that the home was built in 1899 and is, therefore, an actual old farmhouse.
Either way, it’s gorgeous, especially as it’s set in a pastoral area of the Bouldin Creek neighborhood, under live oaks and across the way from the historic Green Pastures property.
Measuring 2,602 square feet, the home has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. THe copious windows and 12-foot ceilings that no doubt once provided much-needed cooling in past summers bring in light and offer treetop views on the second floor.
While features such as wood floors and the overall layout hint at the structure’s longevity, it has received numerous contemporary updates, including remodeled bathrooms and a kitchen with Thermador appliances and Quartzsite counters. & 8 foot Marvin windows/doors. Spacious yard w/ room for pool & 1 car garage (site plan available). Alley access & organic farm behind house. Walk to S 1st/S Lamar/S Congress. Situated across from "Mattie's at Green Pastures". Must see to appreciate.
The master bedroom suite has a double vanity, a full bathtub, and a walk-in shower, as well as a walk-in closet.
The backyard has alley access and an organic garden behind it, as well as room for a one-car garage, according to the listing.
