This latest reimagining of older housing stock in the Cascade area had two things in mind, per its marketers: openness and warmth.

The 1940 three-bedroom was taken down to its studs and expanded, resulting in a “stunning” reno that fuses formal and chill spaces, all leading to a back deck that overlooks serene woods.

It listed with Homesnap in early January for $329,000 and more recently underwent a $10,000 price chop.

Of roughly a half-dozen houses priced north of $300,000 in the neighborhood, it’s the cheapest, but also among the smallest. All but two of those listings have undergone price reductions.

Beyond an array of patios and pad parking, perks on Chatham Avenue include a marble-encased fireplace in the living room, self-closing cabinets and granite in the new kitchen, a master bedroom with nice views, and a bunker-like basement for storage. The square footage is clocked at 1,561.

The listing also notes that a four-camera security system comes with, and that 100 percent financing is available.

In marketing materials, everything from the Lee+White district and Tyler Perry Studios (10 minutes) and downtown and the airport (15 minutes) are cited as proximate attractions.

In conclusion, the listing advises: “Don’t let this one get away!”
