This Craftsman bungalow in what the listing agent calls a "great, quiet pocket of Edgewood" embodies certain elements of its hometown: It's quirky-cool (see the green-tiled fireplace, the lacquered records atop the washer and dryer and the world's reddest outdoor grill). It's old-fashioned (see stained-glass flourishes where you might not expect them, like above the bathtub). And it's a helluva lot more expensive than it used to be (see the previous sale price of $86,000). Of course, that sale was before a thorough 2010 renovation that imbued this 1940 dwelling with 21st-Century styling (see the Acacia hardwood floors and Carrara marble backsplash). The facts: It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, 1,533 square feet and a price tag of $349,900. Its plentiful soul is much harder to quantify.
