Charming Craftsman in East Cesar Chavez asks $749K

Beautifully restored 1915 home with gardens and backyard entertainment deck

1908 Garden Street

This lovely Craftsman-style home, built in 1915, offers the rare chance to buy a single-family home in the rapidly transforming East César Chavez neighborhood—at least for those who can afford it.

It’s located on Garden Street, where many stretches live up to its name, with lush, tended home gardens as well as vacant land that’s overgrown in a good way. Though surrounded by attractions of the burgeoning neighborhood and the close to Festival Beach on the lake, it’s far enough from main thoroughfares to be peaceful and still full of single-family homes.

The 2,085-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and is full of both original features and well-chosen updates that work with them—as well as standing out with their own unique, sometimes surprising charms.

Those thoughtful design details can be found throughout the home, which also has a large, landscaped backyard with an inviting deck perfect for entertaining and gatherings.

The house retains its original hardwood floors and offers lots of open space and natural light, as well as that to be had from some of its beautiful fixtures.

The kitchen features gleaming subway tile, a big island/breakfast bar, and office nook.

The master bedroom features two closets and a bathroom with full bathtub and walk-in shower. Lovely clawfoot tubs seem to grace both bathrooms.

In addition to the substantial deck, the back yard has a playscape and uncovered patio.
