This darling two-bedroom home in Cypress Park has managed to hold onto details that appear original to the 1926 residence. Coved ceilings, a floor-to-ceiling fireplace, built-ins and casement windows are features of the house, which also boasts lathe and plaster walls.
The dining area flows int a bright and ample kitchen with tile counters and a pair of built-ins in the breakfast nook. Hardwood floors run throughout the house, even in the bedrooms, while the house’s lone bathroom looks to have a charming penny-tile floor.
It’s a gem inside and out. Though the yard is not a traditional sod-covered space, there are fruit trees and multiple spaces to entertain, including a semi-hidden patio area.
The house sits on a corner lot atop a flight of stairs that sets the property back from the street. It last sold in 2007 for $430,000. It’s now listed for $599,000.
