Built in 1930, this two-story frame home is located in the Hancock neighborhood, an interesting and storied area in the central city that was originally envisioned as an elegant, private enclave, with very large lots made somewhat inaccessible to foot traffic from the surrounding neighborhood.
While some of the mansion-esque homes from that era remain, though, the neighborhood contains a wider range of homes, as well as the Hancock Recreation Center and adjacent community golf course and a well-trafficked shopping center with a very large grocery store. It’s also convenient to UT, downtown, and the Capitol area.
Situated on a cul-de-sac, the 2,836-square-foot house contains seven bedrooms and four bathrooms. Originally a smaller bungalow, it has been updated with a sizable, well-integrated addition and retained charming, classic elements including original hardwood floors and a fireplace.
There’s also a basement, a deck, a patio, and detached, one-car garage and drought-tolerant landscaping.
