Just a few blocks from Jefferson Park and the Beacon Food Forest, this striking home was built in 1904, and keeps its stunning period character. Formal spaces wrap around the lower floor, from the foyer to the dining room, with original fir hardwood floors. Deep wood millwork and built-ins also keep character, including dramatic crossbeams along the living room ceiling. But hidden in that look are several upgrades, including new windows and a gas fireplace insert.
In perfect early Craftsman style, there’s plenty of space here—the largest of the four bedrooms even has its own bonus room, as big as a whole other bedroom. Some of the 4,000 square feet are more choose-your-own-adventure, including a versatile sunroom on the second floor and a large, mostly-unfinished basement.
Outside, find even more wiggle room. A large deck is out back off the kitchen, like a second, open-air dining room. The corner lot has nearly a quarter of an acre to work with, level and, in its present state, surrounded by fences and a laurel hedge.
