A 1930s bungalow in the historic Hancock neighborhood adjacent to Hyde Park, this home’s refreshed but low-key exterior remains in keeping with the leafy, laid-back street where it’s located.
Inside, it’s a different story. The home was completely gutted and renovated in an imaginative way that that keeps its scale and warmth intact while introducing some pretty great contemporary elements.
Built in 1936, the 1,997-square-foot home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms in the main house, which also features refinished wood and new tile floors, all new counters, and a pullout pantry among its many improvements.
The back of the home opens to a fenced backyard/courtyard, with a contemporary pool and hot tub. On the other side of the pool is a top-notch guest house/studio with a queen-size Murphy bed, two twin loft beds, a half-bathroom, a private outdoor shower, lots of light, and a little porch of its own.
The main home has three bedrooms and two and a half baths.
The yard has new drip irrigation, lighting installed, fencing, and custom-built gates.
