There’s so much to love about this Irish Channel shotgun home, which eschews the cookie-cutter renovations that ensnare so many of its peers. For one thing, an interior wall has been removed to create a familiar, fireplace-punctuated open living area—but there’s an invigorating pop of custom wallpaper instead of an all-white palette, and nary a geometric light fixture in sight.
The kitchen’s stained wood cabinets also feel like a breath of fresh air, though you will find the requisite subway tile, stainless-steel appliances and granite countertops (not a bad thing!).
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom home employs a clever floor plan that maximizes square footage while adding a hall—so no walking through bedrooms to get to the bathroom. A bedroom and en suite bathroom span the entirety of the home’s rear, and a hallway hugs the master bedroom and bathroom.
The 1,073-square-foot home fits snugly on its 1,292-square-foot lot—which means there’s no yard to mow. It’s three blocks from Magazine Street, in a walkable, restaurant-studded neighborhood.
Its asking price is $349,000.
