Walkable and Open

Unexpected Hampden – Hoes Heights residence for a contemporary buyer with vintage sensibility. From the outside it’s a dollhouse, complete with a signature brick facade and a tidy front porch. Step into the living room framed by a Craftsman style staircase. Twenty-six feet of uninterrupted original inlaid hardwood floors run from the front windows to the back of the dining room. Enjoy the best of both worlds with cozy radiator heat and upgraded central air conditioning.

The hardwood floors continue into the kitchen, which has a vintage retro feel thanks to the walk-in pantry and petite scale cabinets. Cook like a pro on your gas stove, or head out the backdoor into your fenced yard to gather fresh herbs and grill. The garden is low maintenance in the winter, and landscaped with perennials for warmer months.

The top floor of the home has been transformed. What was once a series of small rooms has been opened up into a flexible space. Hardwoods, neutral paint and recessed light illuminate an appealing room ready to serve as a studio space, home office, yoga studio, or music room. The full bathroom has retro ceramic pink tile, and a classic black and white floor – don’t change a thing. Down the hallway, the bedroom stands ready to offer you a good night’s sleep.

The lower level has a delightful combination of wood paneling and concrete floor. The front room could serve as guest bedroom or den. There is a half bathroom for guests. A proper combination utility room / laundry room / storage room anchors the back of the space. Have a lot of stuff? Store it here.

The location is superb. Walk to two grocery stores including Mom’s Organic Market at the newly renovated Rotunda Shopping Center. Head a bit further and you’ve got all the excitement of The Avenue ready to entertain you. All the day-to-day necessities such as sushi restaurants, drugstores, dry cleaners, nail salons, Starbucks, and wine shops are all close by. You may not use your car all weekend. Just listed…don’t miss it!
