This classic Tudor on Grayton Street in East English Village has a newly updated kitchen, refinished hardwood floors, and a particularly nice brick fireplace. Built in 1929, this charming abode has arched interior doorways and many tall sash windows to let in the light. Coved ceilings and white bullseye trim make the living room a warm and inviting space, and the curved front door makes the entry feel like something out of Bilbo Baggins' hobbit house design playbook.
While the black granite in the kitchen might read as a little severe, the room has a nice window over the sink and is move-in ready. Upstairs, the bedrooms have new (neutral) carpet. Not everyone's favorite, but an easy change and well within many a budget given the home's reasonable asking price.
Upstairs, a sunny addition lined with full walls of windows offers views into the large, grassy backyard. The home's sharply pitched roof, curved front door and accent window, and large front porch give it a graceful presence on the street. The right owner could take the smart remodel already in place and make this house a very special home indeed.
