When this jumbo bungalow listed last summer, it was far from jumbo. Billed as a starter home with universally disheveled interiors and 1,164 square feet, it sold for just $95K. What you're looking at today is a reset of all the givens. Instead of one-and-half floors, there's now solidly two. Instead of two bedrooms and two baths, there's five and four. And, instead of the modest square footage of a two-bed, there's three times the old living space. So, it comes as no surprise that the new ask—$480K—is five times the January sale price. Every room is completely redone in faux-vintage finishes, the master suite includes a spa bath and rain shower, there's new coffered ceilings, hardwood floors, and bedrooms with little cubby-hole lounge spaces (structural remnants). A new chef's kitchen joins a basement leisure compound (can you say sauna, bar, and theater?) in ratcheting up the creature comforts. Looks like the flippers got to it before the rookies, but Beverly is all the better for it.
