A Great Home in a Great Neighborhood!

Level landscaped front lawn with a level backyard that overlooks acres of woods, with the original 2-car garage wired with electricity for a workshop.

The 2-room basement has a laundry room and a workshop area as well, with access from inside and outside of the house. The finished attic has two rooms, usable as bedrooms or offices, guest rooms, etc.

History of this house

My parents bought this house back in 1969. The price was extremely low ($19,000!) because there was a highway proposed for this neighborhood. However, in the early 70's, my parents and other people in the community joined together to stop the highway, and homes skyrocketed in value in no time.

When we first moved here, the neighborhood was a rinky-dink little area intown when everybody was moving out to the suburbs. Now, this is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the city, maybe in the southeast! The stores have changed from vacuum and TV repair shops to fine cuisine and art galleries, fantastic bars, all within blocks of this house.

The house has had three owners. The original occupants, and then a man who was the shop teacher at the nearby highschool, and then my parents.

The previous owner made a lot of modifications to this house. He finished the attic and the basement, but this is long before housing codes were in place, so the staircases are tight, and some of the touches he made are interesting to say the least. He also put down the most horrific color of carpet throughout the entire house.

In the 80's, my parents and I ripped up the carpet in every room, exposing beautiful hardwoods. They also removed the drop-tiled-ceiling to reveal 10-foot ceilings with crown molding. I just don't understand why anyone would cover these things up.

The kitchen is probably the biggest challenge of the house. Sometime during the 40s or 50s, the porch was converted into the kitchen, and the existing kitchen became the breakfast room. Both areas are limited in space, so my parents, in the 80s, tried to incorporate both into one area.

My plan was to buy the house from them and completely re-do the kitchen and add on another bathroom in the back of the house, modify the staircses and update the upstairs into a grand master bedroom. However, we had a second baby, other things have come up, and instead of turning this into an incredible house, we're selling it.
