Lovers of vintage homes tend to look for the words original or historic and features when house-shopping, but the situation is usually more specific than that. A lot rides on what, exactly, the historic features are, and tastes vary, of course. This charming East Side home has original features that likely have broader appeal than many; they look like they were lovely to begin with and have only been improved by a well-executed renovation.

Located in the Govalle neighborhood, the 1,332-square-foot, single-story home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The longleaf pine floors are original, and the the window and door frames, built-in bookcases, and interior doors look so as well (or at least from the same period). Outside, there’s a back deck, patio, and fenced yard with large shade trees. Throw in some exposed shiplap, a clawfoot tub, and well-chosen bathroom tile and light fixtures, and you have quite the charmer.
