This small, remodeled home isn’t all that from the outside (although it’s refreshed and perfectly respectable), and it’s not for anyone looking to buy something grand. The remodeled interior, though, keeps the humble, small-scale aesthetic and some vintage details but brings a serene, quirky, slightly upscale vibe to the table.
Built in 1949, the home is on a decent-sized, hilltop lot covered with towering, mature trees. Its Cherrywood location makes it convenient to popular Manor Road restaurants and bars, as well as several grocery options and Cherrywood Coffeehouse on the 38th-1/2 Street side of the neighborhood; Mueller and all of its attractions are also nearby.
The home measures 1,027 square feet and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It also features original oak doors, French doors, picture windows, and a metal roof.
In back is fenced yard with a patio, one-car garage, and a barnlike storage building/studio. According to the listing, there’s also room for expansion on the lot.
The kitchen offers ample cabinet space, tile counters, and connections for a stackable washer/dryer unit in a separate utility room.
Bedrooms feature original hardwood floors, and bathrooms have hard tile on floors and in showers.
In addition to a garage space, there is a studio in back that opens to the backyard and patio.
