Hidden behind a quaint wood fence–with mature, drought tolerant fauna–sits 649 Laveta Terrace. And, like a top-of-the-line economy car, this home packs a ton of features into a small package.
With just an 858 sq. ft. footprint, you’d be hard pressed calling this thing anything more than cozy, this home is aptly described as “crush-worthy,” and it’s hard not to agree.
Combining a tasteful blend of original detail with modern updates that’s become common around here, this 2 bedroom, 1.75 bath bungalow is sure to sell beyond its $649,000 asking price.
Rich hardwood flooring, with a dash of exposed brick, complement the bright main living area, while the small dining room comes with one of the most tasteful alcove/wet bars (with built-in wine fridge) I’ve seen. Kudos to a smart use of space!
Keeping things safe in the kitchen, you’ll find the overpopulated white cabinet/light wood/stainless steel-everything-combo that defines every rehabbed home. I get it, it works, but it makes writing boring.
The bedrooms are tiiiiight, but tastefully so. Some people have mixed feelings about wood paneling. This is a perfect example of it working, and the bathroom is gorgeous. Sure, people seem to want bigger, but better will do, and the tile work is lovely.
The second bathroom is off of a small foyer area and, while not quite as nice as the first, it’s still perfectly fine.
I love lofts, and this is a great way to increase useable space. While hardwood would give it a bit more of a period look, the carpet opens up the area and gives it some warmth. It also makes for a great place for kids to hangout.
Another Eastside prerequisite is fulfilled with the addition of a studio space.
If for some reason you do feel confined by the small home, be comforted in knowing you have many al fresco options. With a terraced backyard you get a fire pit, dining area with grill, and a lovely deck for sipping on something while watching day turn to night.
As I said, this home packs in a lot, and probably won’t remain on the market long.
