So they took this peppy little Edgewood bungalow down to the studs and emerged with a smart remodel that doesn't forsake the oldness that makes it cool. Built in 1947, it offers a unique take on the double-sided fireplace and spreads open from front to back like a shotgun house, with perks like a top-flight master shower and spacious new party deck. For $269,900, the home carries a Walk Score of 71, earning a "very walkable" designation (Coan Park, the Edgewood Retail District and something called the Sandwish Factory are within a few blocks). While it touts three bedrooms, it's a safe bet they're relatively small, as the place has 1,276 square feet overall, which is comparable to most two-bedroom condos. This side of Edgewood — a corner-pocket near the Moreland Avenue and Memorial Drive intersection — might be too unglamorous for some buyers. But with eastside affordability creeping ever southward, thinking long-term might pay dividends here.
