Just listed! Beautiful 3 bedroom home in Hyde Park 449,000

 

We just listed this great house. Classic Hyde Park Bungalow! Long Leaf pine floors, high ceilings, original built in book shelves around the fire place and original french doors.  Huge front porch that is just begging for a porch swing or two! Kitchen is big enough for a kitchen table. Original details through out house.

About 1350 sq ft, being used as a three bedroom one bath, with two living areas. This is just a gem. I would love for someone to turn two of the bedrooms back into porches and make it a two bedroom with the original 2 sleeping porches.  (Just for grins I ran some numbers on that project – it should cost ~50 K to covert and should sell for 545-570. )

This lot has amazing trees and alley access.  It is is set up high off the ground so it’s easy to have access. (This is important when you own an old house) Located on Avenue C, you can walk to Asti, Hyde Par Grill, VinoVino, everything Hyde Park has to offer.

The house is in great condition and has been pre-inspected so everyone knows what they are getting.

It’s the best deal in the neighborhood at 449,000.
