Cottage-style ranch home in Highland Park West asks $440K

1951 build with modest, refreshing redo reflects different eras

This freestanding condo is located in the central Highland Park West neighborhood, near parks, schools, shopping, and the longtime local attractions on Hancock Drive as well as the Bright Leaf Nature preserve. While it shares the lot and a wall in the detached garage with the another condo of its type, it’s primarily a 1,497-square-foot, single-family home.

Built in 1951, it’s vaguely ranch-style, not even a little midcentury modern, but mostly a modest, charming, cottage-style home with an understated redo. It has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, a breakfast space, and a dining area.

Other features include its original shiplap walls and refinished hardwood floors, custom kitchen cabinets, and lots of natural light. Completely remodeled, save the bathrooms, in 2007, it also has the aforementioned garage and plenty of storage space. Perhaps best of all, it’s on a leafy lot across the street from Perry Park and its tennis courts, as well as a jogging trail
