This small, vintage home is in a central location—just off North Lamar Boulevard near the Triangle. The cul-de-sac it’s on was for many years known primarily for its auto shops, parts warehouses, and other places where light industry is conducted. That’s still true for the first part of the street, but it’s all residential a couple of blocks in.
The one-story, clapboard house was built in 1932, but the updated style doesn’t go overboard trying to make it fit its vintage. Many of the new features have a contemporary look, which plays well against the stripped-down interiors and original features. The 956-square-foot home has two bedrooms and one bathroom and features hardwood floors, an open floor plan, high ceilings, and vintage architectural details.
The kitchen opens to a large back deck, and one of the bedrooms is off the covered, home front porch. The property also has four off-street parking spaces and comes with a storage unit.
The renovated kitchen features marble, quartz, and stainless steel, with ample cabinet storage.
The front bedroom opens on to a cozy, covered porch.
A large deck runs along the back of the house.
