A 1,400-square-foot, three-bedroom home at 3311 Vinewood Street is renting for $2,000 per month. The impressive renovation of this Second Empire–style home from 1877 saved it from almost certain demolition. Now, there’s lots of nice details in the home—exterior paint job, crown molding, slate fireplace, pocket doors—as well as a brand new bathroom and kitchen.
