On leafy Lakeview Drive, near the confluence of Kirkwood and Oakhurst, sits a 1925 house that's gone from cutesy sea green to modern-style Tudor in recent months. The listing agent calls the four-bedroom abode "impeccably constructed" and this one of "Kirkwood's best streets," which could lend logic to the $479,000 price tag. (Multiple listing services show the post-renovation square footage is 1,252, about the size of a standard two-bedroom condo. That's a whopping $382 per square foot, if true). Upon closer look, front-porch enthusiasts could be disheartened; kitchen snobs most likely will not. The kitchen qualifies as gourmet, with its Corian counters and glass-tile backsplash, and the master bathroom is another highlight, with its huge frameless shower and claw-foot tub. The spacious back deck employs a stylish prison-bar aesthetic, and it compensates for the nonexistent front porch. But like the square footage, the Walk Score here seems suspect: a "car-dependent" 33.
