Gray is the hottest neutral right now, and I am loving how it’s just popping up everywhere and in every conceivable shade. All 50 of them.
Trashy adult novel puns aside, this gorgeous
Junius Heights Munger Place Arts and Crafts home is the perfect example of how neutral doesn’t mean boring. With all of the wonderful cool slate, marble, and pearl grays, all of the details stand out.
Really, this house is begging for a hipster couple to move in. I mean, the furniture is so eclectic and cool-without-trying that it appears that a skinny-jeans-wearing couple has done quite well for themselves.
Just like any of the historic homes in the
Junius Heights Munger Place district, 4912 Worth St., built in 1910, is very segmented. There are tons of walls and rooms and nooks, but with the incredible number of windows in this home, you wouldn’t really care. This house was built for finding a quiet spot and getting some “me” time.
There are three bedrooms, two and a half baths, three living rooms and a study. Surely you can find a place to sit down with your eReader or tablet and catch up on CandysDirt.com and Second Shelters, right?
A few years ago this neighborhood was hot with the fixer-upper crowd, and as a result, prices increased and have mostly stabilized. With a total of 2,528 square feet, the asking price of $399,000 seems more than fair. In fact, it was recently reduced from $425,000.
I do love the furniture and finishes in this home. The light fixtures are interesting, especially the hanging lamp over the claw-foot tub in the master bathroom, but overall I like it. In fact, I like the kitchen cabinets and countertops so much that I don’t mind the mismatched appliances and open laptop.
This house is great for kids, especially teenagers as you are within walking and biking distance of the Lakewood library branch, there’s White Rocke Lake nearby, and it’s in the Woodrow Wilson High School attendance zone.
In all, I’d call this two-story beauty a winner!
