You'd be pretty burned if developers came along and built three-story multi-unit buildings to the property line on both sides of your quaint cottage. When that happened to this house—however many decades ago—we imagine the reaction was similar. Now that it's one of the only modest single family homes left on its block it may have, in a strange way, regained some desirability. Thankfully, it's oriented North-South so it'll catch some quantity of sunlight year round. The south-facing master bedroom deck and the backyard get the brunt. The house's setback creates a decent front yard and the large front porch is a prime gathering space. Another thing to be thankful for: the absence of neighboring windows bearing down on the house. The 1886 2-bed has had a fair amount of updating. We dig the porthole windows by the front entry, and the decently high ceilings. Situated at the Northern edge of Andersonville between Clark & Ridge, the ask is $479K, $64K above its '04 fetch.
