In West End, recently renovated 1930s bungalow seeks $350K

Old-fashioned charm meets modern updates to create a house that melds with emerging development southwest of downtown

While this 1930s bungalow obviously features a more old-fashioned appearance from the street, the interior is anything but outdated.

Located just off Cascade Avenue, south of Interstate 20 in the West End, the three-bedroom, three-bath home is the obvious recipient of a recent renovation that converted the interior into a modern-leaning abode.

The listing claims “designer finishes abound,” and that’s evident in the kitchen, with its clear-tiled backsplash, reclaimed wood (okay, well, rustic-modern), steely pendant, and quartz countertops.

The “fire & ice” electric fireplace in the living room is an unexpected addition, as is the beverage center (with wine fridge) included in the kitchen.

Another unexpected addition is the barn door in the master bedroom that separates the bedroom from the master bathroom. While the double-vanity, walk-in shower, and separate soaking tub are worthy upgrades, the de rigueur door choice seems a bit out of place for a bathroom entry.

Overall, though, the entire home comes across as the total package, especially with the covered front porch, screened-in back deck, fenced-in backyard, and private off-street parking. Listings peg the square footage at a roomy 2,550 square feet, too.

Given the home sold earlier this year for $145,500, it appears the current asking price of $349,900 is a result of the recent renovations. With the increasing interest in the West End, it’ll be intriguing to see how long this reno remains on the market.

Astonishingly, it’s that rare listing on this side of town that doesn’t mention the Beltline’s Westside Trail, which is finishing up a few blocks away. Maybe it doesn’t need to.
