While it sometimes seems like Hyde Park has an endless supply of 20th-century bungalows with just the right balance of individual character and classic style (it doesn’t, but almost), some prefer a particular and rarer variant, such as this cozy cottage at 4109 Avenue A, with its relatively modest price and a design sensibility that’s just the right amount of offbeat.
Built in 1924, the extensively renovated, one-story bungalow has two bedrooms and one bathroom in 876 square feet. In addition to its refurbished pine flooring and high ceilings, the home features restored windows with preserved original glass in the front rooms and bedrooms.
An updated kitchen features high-end appliances including a Jenn-Air cooktop, a GE warming drawer, and a Whirlpool wine fridge. The bathroom has a rain shower, nautical lighting, and a porthole-mirrored medicine cabinet.
While it’s located just two blocks from the historic neighborhood’s beloved Shipe Park, the house has a screened-in back porch and verdant yard that create a very parklike setting on their own. There’s also a fully wired, detached shed/workshop in the fenced backyard.
