This small, charming vintage home is tucked into a pocket of the Chestnut neighborhood that it seems like home buyers looking on the East Side sometimes overlook—right off East 12th Street, buffered by the retail on that street as well as the historic Downs-Mabson Fields. At 624 square feet, it would make a great starter home or just a fine place for people looking to live small.
Built in 1958, the one-story frame home has two bedrooms and one bathroom. It has been thoroughly renovated and has what looks like a layout that makes the most of the space. It features the original hardwood floors and custom barn doors to the bedrooms (also space-saving) as well as a kitchen with custom cabinets, quartzite counters, a subway-tile backsplash, and tile floors. It also has a tankless water heater and energy efficient windows. In back is a fenced yard with a deck and a storage building.
