Fans of midcentury authenticity, bungalows and bona fide soul could find a suitable amalgam of all three in this three-bedroom Ormewood Park home listed for an even $250,000. At 1,815 square-feet, the 1950 property is roomy for an older bungalow and appears thoughtfully renovated, from the crown moldings to the kitchen's stained cabinetry. The master, which appears to consume the former attic, is "your own private oasis," to quote to the broker. There's a patio overlooking a generous backyard, and one of those quintessential Southern porches girded by thick, simple beams. The home last sold a year ago for $14,000 less, so the ask could be indicative of recent improvements or a strengthening submarket. Outside of leafy, quiet streets, Ormewood Park offers quick interstate access and walkability to other neighborhoods — Grant Park, EAV, Glenwood — with more to offer in the realms of dining and drinking options. What it does offer, obviously, is affordability.
