Charming Green Acres home sells for above asking

We’ve seen some nice move-in ready homes go up for sale this year, particularly in East English Village. This Green Acres house caught our attention in January, and our readers agreed that this one was a winner. It listed for $215,000 and just sold for $220,000.

This house had a lot going for it. It’s a reasonable size at nearly 2,300 square feet. It still had some vintage charm (note the archways, tiling in the bathrooms, built-ins in the office/study, and leaded glass windows). But it was also updated with modern conveniences. And the sun room. We really loved this sun room.

Honestly, we’d be sitting out there all the time. The house has three bedrooms, two and a half baths, and is located near Sherwood Forest, the University District, Palmer Woods, and the shops and restaurants along the Avenue of Fashion. Could these sales indicate a good spring and summer for home sellers this year? We shall see, but we know good move-in ready houses can be hard to find. Here’s one last look.
