The adage “don’t judge a book by its cover” is well-worn for a reason. And it definitely applies to this home in Hubbard-Richard.
Aside from some neat woodwork underneath the roof, the narrow home from 1900 is fairly unsuspecting from the outside. There’s some olive green vinyl siding on the front and the wood siding in the back could use a paint job.
But inside, the home is inviting. The ample woodwork throughout has been gloriously refinished—the fireplace mantel is particularly impressive. But there’s plenty more on the floors, wide entryways, and window frames.
The home doesn’t exactly have an open floor plan, but you can see straight through from the living room to den to kitchen, which makes for an easy flow. We also like the built-in bench by the windows in the dining room.
The kitchen has gotten a very modern update, including an island with a range and matching tiles on the floor and backsplash. The upstairs bathroom has gotten a similar treatment, with new tiles and a walk-in glass shower.
The 1,707-square-foot, three-bedroom home on Bagley Street is listed with O’Connor Real Estate for $259,900.
You can see the home for yourself at one of two open houses on Friday, September 13 from 5 - 7 p.m. and Saturday, September 14 from noon - 2 p.m.
