Built in 1930, this Morningside bungalow presents a nondescript facade that quietly contradicts the party potential of the backyard.
Multi-level rear decks overlook a heated, saltwater gunite swimming pool and hot tub that most definitely would be the center of attention of any outdoor entertaining.
The interior isn’t without surprises, but it’s more matched with the home’s low-key front appearance than its backyard hotspot.
With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, the home claims 2,249 square feet in the listing, but every room appears small or even cramped.
Aforementioned surprises include the chalkboard wall in the kitchen (a perk for families) opposite the ruby-red washer and dryer.
The wood on that asymmetrical island also is much darker than the other kitchen cabinetry, creating an incohesive aesthetic, especially when considering the white built-in cabinets in the corner.
Even the lack of built-ins on both sides of the fireplace gives the living room an unbalanced look.
Updates in the master bathroom work hard to bring the space into the modern era, but that effort falls short in light of the glass-block shower walls.
Listed barely more than a week ago for $825,000, the home already has been reduced by $25,000 to the current ask of $799,900.
It’s unclear why the price was slashed, considering the house is priced fairly for this choice community, but the discount is definitely a positive for potential buyers.
