Vintage charm and modern elegance are artfully combined in this classic 1917 bungalow. Situated in the Rose Park South Historic District, this home features a mixture of original architectural elements like hardwood flooring and built-in cabinetry with new, stylish details such as eco-timber flooring, energy-efficient appliances, recessed lighting, and lush landscaping.
The expansive open living room / dining room floor plan includes original hardwood flooring, crown molding, many large, bright windows, and authentic wood built-ins, including beautiful display shelving.
The updated kitchen is a contemporary homeowner’s dream with tons of storage and earth-friendly materials. Newer amenities include eco-timber flooring, LEED certified PaperStone countertops, energy-efficient stainless steel appliances, and recessed lighting. An attached dining nook with built-in seating is bathed in sunlight by all of its windows.
While it maintains its original Craftsman beauty, the home has seen numerous upgrades, including copper plumbing, electric wiring, and an updated vintage-style bathroom. The back yard offers mature landscaping with a sprinkler system, a basket weave brick patio, and secluded Japanese-style rock garden with bamboo borders.
Situated in Rose Park South – which “This Old House” named one of the “Best Old House Neighborhoods” – this home is extremely walkable and boasts a “walk score” of 85/100. A short stroll will take you to restaurants, shops, coffee houses, a wine bar, movie theater, or grocery store.
