Buy a North Loop charmer for less than $500K

Lightened-up 1941 home asks $465K

White frame vintage home seen through front fence/entrance
5108 Avenue F

The price isn’t a lot under half a mil, but as far as going costs in its popular central neighborhood, the $465,000 being asked for this home isn’t bad. Built in 1941, the frame home has been remodeled in a pared-down style that’s currently popular, with mostly white walls inside and out, recessed lighting, vaulted ceilings, light wood floors, and an opened-up living area.

There’s no mistaking its vintage, though; the big, wraparound porch, siding, wooden exterior vents, and painted shiplap ceilings give away, and it looks like it was a relatively plain house to begin with, so the renovations to bring in more light and feelings of spaciousness aren’t starling.

While its listing puts it in Hyde Park, conventionally used neighborhood boundaries puts it in North Loop, but that just means it’s close to the best of both worlds, as the two neighborhoods have equally desirable restaurant, entertainment, and retail strips.

The 1,130-square-foot home has three bedrooms and one bathroom. In addition to the large porch, it has fenced front and back yards (the front fence being white picket, of course), with a brick patio in back.
