Perched over a popular green space in Kirkwood’s southwestern flank, next door to the guilty pleasure emporium that is Poppa Corn’s, this bright-white contemporary has risen from a somewhat tight, hilly lot off Hosea Williams Drive.
The stucco-clad work of unspecified “local boutique builders,” the four-bedroom, three-bathroom dwelling restrains itself (statement lighting notwithstanding) to achieve what the listing calls “spectacular custom modern” design.
It overlooks multifunctional Coan Park and an existing PATH Trail, the Trolley Line Trail, that’s planned for an extension via Edgewood and Reynoldstown to connect with the Beltline’s Eastside Trail.
Inside, it counts an even 2,600 square feet, a nifty dual-sink kitchen with waterfall hard surfaces, bathroom-floor tiling like everlasting Tetris, and a decidedly industrial fireplace surround.
A balcony off one bedroom complements the nearby roof deck, which, while not as large as rooftop terraces spotted at pads across town recently, is partially shaded by cantilevers and looks equipped to handle an outdoor television.
Potential drawbacks could include standard wood fencing that doesn’t exactly echo the home’s aesthetics, and the listing’s exaggerated claim that Drew Charter School is basically around the corner.
Should it achieve the current asking price of $750,00, it would join handful of larger Kirkwood houses that’ve crested the $700,000 threshold in the past couple of years (with several others under contract).
That pile is topped, for now, by this $775,000 deal last year.
