Given that this isn’t Cabbagetown, this Grant Park craftsman/shotgun-style house from the 1920s certainly stands out in the neighborhood.
It’s a safe bet that potential homebuyers will either love or loathe the exterior at first glance, although it does little to advertise the modern interior beyond that blue front door.
Thoroughly renovated, the 1,936-square-foot structure manages three bedrooms and three bathrooms in an elongated space that also includes 12-foot ceilings in some spots.
The “sophisticated” kitchen contains an overabundance of various finishes, some of which could have been excluded.
From the granite countertops and copper farmhouse sink to the subway tile backsplash, variegated hardwood floors and wood-slate wall, there’s a lot going on in this small space.
The choice of barn doors on the bathrooms might be due to the lack of space for traditional doors, but pocket doors might have been a better option.
The new 14-foot back deck is a great addition, but it’s unclear what’s below the deck, as no exterior pics are provided from back there.
The listing claims the home “maintains the charm and allure of this highly desirable neighborhood,” but it’s uncertain if the current asking price of $560,000 is realistic for this architectural style in this location.
