Built in 1939, this home is on the small side (744 square feet), but big on vintage charm—thanks largely to a remodel that kept the right original features and made updates true to the house’s original style and spirit.
It’s also nicely located, in a quiet but convenient stop close to both Downtown and a busting strip of Manor Road associated with Cherrywood. Its location at 2205 Alamo Street, just north of Manor, however, puts it in the historically significant Blackland neighborhood—a historically significant and contested area between that street and MLK Jr. Boulevard.
The house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and features its original hardwood floors and exposed shiplap ceilings as well as subway and Saltillo-style tile that works nicely with the original elements.
There’s also a deck that overlooks its sizable, fenced backyard, which has mature trees and a wide variety of possibilities (including just leaving it in its current, peaceful-looking state). The house is listed by Compass.
