In My Neighborhood
This house is on 30th and Robinson in Edgemere Park. (That's my hood!)
It can be your's! In addition to the open house that I'm having here...there is an actual open house
at the home from 2 to 4 on Sunday (today).
I've driven by this house thousands of times and never thought it was anything special.
This is how it has always looked since I've lived in the neighborhood.
It's a great house once all the brush was cleared away and it was painted.
It's got a great big wrap around porch which I'm envious of.
There are many things I love about this home and wish my own home had been so clean and bright upon purchase.
I really covet those windows! So wish my house had those!
It's got a great original art tile fireplace and I love it that they kept the original gas stove in place as
it would have been back in 1929.
I'm loving the color of the walls and all the white trim.
Oh...if my house had been all painted all the way through like this...it would have been a dream.
I was foolish and liked it that I hated all the paint color sin my home cause then I'd have fun changing it.
Wrong...10 years later and I still haven't painted all the rooms and the rooms that I have painted...
Notice the great big floor grates? I really dig those. My house had floor furnaces - long removed but you can still see where they had been.
Original wedding cake chandelier is such a 1920's detail!
And it's unusual that the dining room has a high ceiling in this house.
Usually the dining rooms don't...just the living room.
I'd like to have that in my own home.
Sweet little breakfast nook with a phone nook included.
Usually there is a built in cabinet in this room. But not this time.
The kitchen has been totally redone. I would have loved to see what the original kitchen looked like
cause I love original cabinets but I'd be happy with this one.
I adore the white marble countertops.
Only thing I'd want to change is I don't like dark grout. I'd want to change the grout.
I have a thing about cabinets over the stove too..I'd want a pretty hood there instead.
But that is an easy fix.
But all in all...it's a darling little kitchen.
Nice bedroom...really like the windows in this home.
Bathroom has been redone. I can't complain about anything here.
I'd put up a fabulous Venetian mirror over the sink and call it done.
Backyard is a little lacking but everything else is so well done...
you could focus on making this wonderful since the house is turn key.
It's a good size yard.
Install some french doors somewhere here and add a big patio and this all would be awesome.
I think those garage doors are super cute! I'd LOVE to have some like them.
Mine are hideous!
Well, if you are looking for a great house in a historic neighborhood - this is a nice one!
I know if I wasn't all snug in my own home...I'd be tempted!
