Shopping for houses in spring can be as much about garden tours as house tours. Walk up to the front of this 710 square foot tiny house in Arbor Heights and spend more time noticing the lilacs and at least four other colorful bits of landscaping in the front yard. It just won't look the same at any other time of the year.
Of course, if you're shopping, the gardens are nice but the house is what's most important.
Inside the 1942 cottage are the expected upgrades: granite counters and back splash, new appliances and lighting. There are also the bits that have been there all along: hardwood floors, and a fireplace that now has a wood stove on the hearth. The sellers are asking $335,000 for the 2 bedroom, 1 bath house which works out to $472/square foot which looks like it is in good shape. Take a tour to be sure.
Outside, there's more opportunity on the 6,534 square foot lot. While the front may be nicely planted, the fenced back yard is open to interpretation. One massive tree shades almost the entire space, which can be limiting, but it is also a chance to get creative. How about a rock and moss garden?
