No one would blame you if you mistook this split-level bungalow in Hollygrove for a new construction. Thanks to its open living area, sliding barn doors, wood paneling, and subway tile, it’s very on trend. But the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home was actually built in 1918. And unlike many completely renovated historic homes, at $288,000, it won’t break the bank.
The 1,391-square-foot home features wood floors, 11-foot ceilings, and plenty of big windows.
Open shelving and white cabinetry contribute to the kitchen’s airy feel, and there’s also a gas stove.
The dining room’s accent wall and chandelier give it a lived-in patina.
The home’s three bedrooms are on the split second level, just past the accent wall of wood paneling.
In the bathroom, marble countertops, subway tile, and graphic hexagonal floor tile create a dynamic geometric interplay within the simple black-and-white palette.
In addition to a porch and large fenced backyard, there’s also a 457-square-foot utility room that serves as a perfect blank canvas for a workshop, home studio, or den.
This home is a block from Claiborne and less than a mile from the streetcar on Carrollton Avenue. Plus, if you lived here, you could quote a former resident of the neighborhood, Lil Wayne, and tell everyone, “I come from Hollygrove.”
