Here’s an Uptown home styled with a pop of green—because even though St. Patrick Day is over, the Italian-Irish parade has yet to come! Built circa 1920, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom shotgun was renovated in 2003 with an eye toward preservation. Walls in the front of the house were removed to create an open living and dining area, which is bisected by an original fireplace. Other old-timey elements include transoms, floor-to-ceiling windows, and wooden floors.

Brick elements also are present in the kitchen, where they serve as a nice textural contrast to the polished stone floors and stainless-steel appliances. Bedroom highlights include built-in bookshelves and crown molding. The back porch overlooks a petite, fenced backyard.

This 1,890-square-foot home is a block and a half away from a stretch of Magazine Street that includes restaurants, salons, boutiques, and a Whole Foods. It’s asking $595,000.
