Tucked away on a cul-de-sac, a few blocks east of the Edgewood Retail District, this new modern home features a cutting-edge design based on a concrete foundation, per its builders.
In fact, the entire first floor is literally constructed of concrete.
The remaining two floors aim to soften the concrete with an exterior blend of gray, glass, and wood.
One of the home’s key features, per the listing, is its longterm durability. This place is energy-efficient, low-maintenance, and resistant to water, moisture, hail, floods, fire, and even hurricanes, per the listing.
That being said, don’t think the interior of the home is without its charms. Hardwood floors provide warmth to the open floorplan of the first floor, and natural light floods in through the many windows.
Modern light fixtures, a tile backsplash that covers two walls of the kitchen, and stainless steel appliances further enhance the contemporary feel of the house while adding texture.
The master bedroom includes its own balcony, which may be large enough for two chairs and a side table. The master bath is quite impressive with double vessel sinks, a soaking tub, and a separate glassed, walk-in shower.
Outside, find three total balconies, albeit small ones, plus a nice-sized roof deck that would be an ideal entertaining spot.
Parking for the home is a bit of a mystery. The listing indicates a detached carport with two spaces, as well as a parking pad and driveway, come with the house; listing photos suggest otherwise. At the very least, parking is available along the curb of the cul-de-sac.
The asking price of $539,900 is on par with similarly sized listings in Edgewood. This one counts four bedrooms and an even 2,300 square feet.
