This one-story house isn’t a stunner, by any means. It does, however, offer the basics for a single-family home, nicely updated and move-in ready, at an affordable price fairly close to the city core.

Located near South First Street in what we are now calling the West Congress neighborhood (fairly far south, in other words), the brick home has three bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms. The 1212-square-foot house was built in 1967 and retains the traditional/ranch-style(ish) design of that era. It has fresh paint, new vinyl-sheet flooring, and new carpet in bedrooms. Updates also include a light, bright, all-white kitchen and an open floor plan. The kitchen opens on to the large, fenced backyard, which features a patio and a number of mature trees that provide essential shade. The roof was replaced in 2017. It’s also wired for Google Fiber, so it’s pretty much ready to go.

The kitchen and bedrooms look out on a big, leafy backyard.
