Living Room -

This home is a great example of a restored bungalow, with what appears to be the original layout and finishes preserved. There is a lot of unpainted wood trim and gorgeous floors. The down sides of these homes for modern users tend to be the small room sizes and single bathroom (hence why so many homes do not retain their original features to sell in the current market). In this case, the basement remains unfinished (although the attic offers additional living space.)

You can see “Before” pics of this home on the 2004 listing.

If you think this house is adorable, but you really do need more bathrooms and open space, you are in luck. A similar house just came on the market across the street at 1002 Taylor St NE, listed at $$625,000., sporting a finished basement and a total of three baths.

The listing agents for this sale was Jake Abbot with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices PenFed Realty. Karen Thibeau with Long and Foster represented the Buyer.

  • I am so sad that this house sold to someone who is not me. I love it.

  • Realtors would do well to use wide-angle lenses more judiciously, and not outdoors. That porch is probably perfectly level and plumb, but in the pic it looks seriously off-kilter.
