Oh my gawd I LOVE this house! I’ve seen a lot of renovation jobs — some turning out bland, some just plain butt ugly — and when you see a complete, to-the-studs renovation go right it’s like nirvana. Your toes get all tingly and your check-writing finger gets itchy and, well, you just have to have it!
This adorable home, 5841 Morningside, is marketed by Dave Perry-Miller agent Lisa Johnson for $465,000. That’s a great value, folks, especially considering the fact that you don’t have to change a thing about this unbelievable home. It’s been opened up to have a large living and dining area that flows to the kitchen, which will make for effortless entertaining, which you’ll want to do constantly to show off the fresh interiors!
This home has three bedrooms, two baths, and just more than 2,300 square feet. There’s a two-car garage as well as an excellent rear patio that is accessible through the kitchen.
Speaking of kitchen, I love that while everything inside this home is new, the owners didn’t lose their sense of historic character and included some great details such as the apron sink and the farmhouse faucet. There are brand-new GE Profile appliances in the kitchen, including a wine refrigerator to keep your whites at the perfect temp. There’s a great wine rack for your reds, too.
Built in 1940, you’d expect that a home like this wouldn’t have a master suite, much less any closet space to speak of. You’d be wrong, though. This home has a gorgeous master with a five-piece bathroom that will make you squeal! Look at that claw-foot tub! An oversized shower! A gorgeous double-sink vanity! The stained-glass window! I’ve run out of exclamation marks.
The second bathroom continues the theme of retaining some historic sensibilities. The tiny sink, with its chrome pedestal, is so cute. Paired with the mirror, the wainscoting, and the gray walls with a slight patina, it’s a page out of Restoration Hardware, no?
What you won’t see on this listing is the backyard, which is a bummer, but I think I’m sold on the rest of the house regardless of what they have back there. What about you?
