The habit of remodeling historic and vintage homes, especially the interiors, with a modern eye is nothing new, particularly in neighborhoods like Hyde Park, which are chockablock with charming but often unremarkable bungalows built in the early decades of the 20th century.
WIth a remodel that takes advantage of its traditional form one-and-a-half-story, brick bungalow represents the best aspects of a modern approach to renovation—one that brings in light and brings out the home’s best existing features—in this case, its interior verticality and the rich wood of its numerous arched entrances, windows, and doorways.
Built in 1938, the2,399-square-foot home has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a media room, an office loft, a screened upstairs porch, and two-car garage. It features wood and hard tile floors throughout, built-ins, pocket doors, a number of double-hung windows, a covered front porch (with more arches), and a shaded lot with mature trees and other foliage. The home at 914 East 38-1/2 Street is listed by Lindsay Neuren at Compass.
