Like intown brethren the Old Fourth Ward, Edgewood is continually sowing a crop of modern-style houses these days, and the latest offering is set to deliver in May. At last check, this under-construction, 1,850-square-foot true contemporary was priced at $425,00. But that was nearly a year ago, and the price has since climbed to $449,000, which buys "unmatched … design and quality by Urban Pellerin Homes," the listing agent asserts. Once finished, the house will have three bedrooms, three bathrooms and highpoints like a covered, elevated terrace and 10-foot ceilings. Investors scooped up the .1-acre lot for $60,000 last year and demolished a three-bedroom home built in 1910. The relatively cheap land price can probably be attributed to the location: a pocket of Edgewood that's considerably more up-and-coming than others. But the house isn't alone in its brash aesthetics, and for modern enthusiasts willing to take a chance, it's significantly cheaper here than it would be a few blocks in almost every other direction.
