This one-story brick home built in 1959 isn’t designed strictly in the midcentury-modern style, but the look and feel hew pretty closely to popular postwar model. (The carport conversion, while well done, is a bit painful, but the fact that a formerly exterior wall is left intact indoors makes up for it.) The sunken living area, fireplace surround, and remodeled bathrooms are especially fetching.
Located in the Windsor Park neighborhood northeast of Downtown, the 1,821-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Renovations over the years have included the kitchen, bathrooms, floors, and windows, as well as the addition of a tankless water heater and a deck. Floors are wood and hard tile; the home also features vaulted ceilings, French doors, and recessed lighting. The kitchen is open to the living area and has granite and marble counter tops. The fenced back yard features a deck as well as a storage shed.
A garage or carport has been converted into a studio that opens on to the back yard.
Bedrooms and bathrooms have been updated in a way that works well with home’s original design.
The private back yard has mature trees and green space.
