The attractions of Hyde Park are many—its proximity to downtown, UT, and central city groceries and restaurants, not to mention its own bounty of now-classic neighborhood joints among them—but one of the biggest draws is the verdant landscape.
Sure, it has its share of apartment complexes fronted by bare asphalt or concrete, lot-hogging new builds, and convenience stores—though even those often boast more mature greenery than do similar places in other parts of town.
Mostly, though, its streets and yards are lush and leafy, with the welcome shade of mature trees hanging over many a thoroughfare and smaller homes surrounded by gardens in various states of cultivation.
That’s certainly a big part of the appeal of this classic wood-frame house, built in 1937. Classic Hyde Park charmer. It’s cute in and of itself, of course, with features such as wood floors, built-in bookcases, French doors, classic bathroom tiles, and a quirky attic build-out.
The house measures 1,520 square feet and has two bedrooms and three bathrooms, in addition to the attic bonus room. (There’s a garage with a workshop, too).
But residents and visitors alike will probably be drawn to its backyard, with a water feature, raised beds, a stone patio, and outdoor shower, among other gardener-oriented delights. According to the owner, you could put another structure back there, too, with alley access. Buyer’s choice!
