    Oddest stair I’ve ever seen – is there plexiglass or glass connected to that lone newel post? Can’t tell from the photos.
    Cute house. Needs some work – carpet removed and taking care of installing flooring underneath. The ugliest thing to change that is not easy is that brown tile wall in the tub in in the main bathroom – ugh. Kudos to them, though, for making their underdeck outdoor space not dank.
    Though the narrow kitchen would stop me. I’ve lived with and cooked happily in very narrow galley kitchens, the kind where the oven door has just enough room to open fully, and the fridge door only opens to little more than a 45 degree angle, but they’ve always had cabinets and counter top on the other side of the galley. I can’t stand the idea of cooking with a wall right there behind me – even worse when there’s a window on the other side (which there isn’t here) – I always feel like one wrong move and I’ll crash through the window. In a layout like this, I might prefer the kitchen to be a separate room if it were a bit wider – but when it is this narrow and so uncomfortable for me to cook in, that’s when I’d open the wall to the dining room, just to have enough elbow room to cook comfortably. I guess a buyer like me could do that here. (Though I’m guessing from the artwork hanging from a curtain rod in the dining room that perhaps they current owners put that wall back up and didn’t want to make too many holes in it.)

    I agree, they’ve made that backyard into a pretty nice space. I would definitely need to knock out the wall in the kitchen and add an island instead though.
    Overall, seems difficult to find something in this good of shape and this close in for around $550k. I’d say it’s a good deal.

    Nice! I especially love the backyard, with the deck, covered patio underneath, and the lawn, they really maximized the use of the space (as long as you don’t miss being able to park a car back there).

    I went to the open house over the weekend and the house is MUCH smaller than it appears in the photos. The master felt cramped and the ceiling were really low, I was almost decapitated by the ceiling fan! The construction of the big walk in closet (formerly a bedroom) looked a little cheap. But the backyard, deck, and basement are really nice. I think the price certainly is fair and it will probably get multiple offers. There were lots of young-ish couples at the open house.

    Ai yai yai!! That is some seriously trippy bathroom tile in the upstairs (?) bathroom.

    That banister missing all the spindles looks so odd.
