It is cute and quaint, and for someone that will be all that matters.
It is a cottage from 1939 when 800 square feet probably felt just about right for two bedrooms and one bathroom. People were just coming out of the Great Depression and probably weren’t thinking too grand.
Updates happen. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, various countertops, wood cabinets, a fresh tile backsplash, and some futuristic lighting.
The bathroom’s fixtures are updated, too; but playful tile work will leave a more lasting impression.
Look down at the flooring. Depending on the room it is either hardwood or laminate, practical choices from different eras. Look up and see ceilings of wood slats, a natural and warming touch.
One feature that won’t show up in just any house is the custom, built-in cabinetry in one of the two bedrooms. A variety of vertical, horizontal, and square compartments fill one wall with storage. Whether your stuff fits into those shapes is your issue.
Head outside for the fenced, 5,741 square foot lot. The front has a small lawn and a gravel driveway. The back has a shed and some planters that could be the start of a more extensive garden. Between the front and the back and reaching from fence to fence is a spacious deck that suggests living outside, when the weather cooperates.
The package is so sweet, cute, and quaint that it has already received an offer; which evidently also fell through. The listing price remains unchanged at $410,000. Deals can fall through for the simplest of reasons. Check with your realtor to be sure. You may also notice that, at least according to the listing, the sole source of heat is a stove. Hopefully they’re talking about the one in the living room, not the one in the kitchen.
