Following extensive updates, this 1928 home features a rather bold interior with surprises galore

Renovated and expanded, this 1928 Kirkwood bungalow now contains quite the contemporary update behind its more traditional brick front porch.

Housing three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 2,086 square feet, the home features a “thoughtful” floorplan with brick fireplaces, original hardwoods, and an ample supply of built-ins.

Some of the aforementioned surprises include an explosive chandelier, the snazzy wallpapered accent wall in the living room, the abundance of shiplap in the kitchen and dining room, the barn doors separating the kitchen and family room, and the wall of built-in storage in the master bedroom.

The master bathroom also includes its share of “chic updates” with a two-person shower, soaking tub, and even more shiplap.

Outside, the covered front porch (begging for a swing) provides an idyllic spot for catching up with the neighbors, while the floating deck and “tranquil” fenced backyard are better suited for relaxing with family or entertaining pals.

The storage building tucked into a far corner is a handy touch.

Given that the home last sold in 2012 for $350,000, could the jump to the current ask of $550,000 be a result of renovations, or strictly the influence of market temperature?

Those renovations surely played a role in why the property scored such a quick offer (roughly four days), but the “highly walkable location” to downtown Kirkwood and East Lake’s budding Hosea+2nd project surely didn’t hurt.
