A fan of workers cottages? Then, you’ll fall in love with this charming block in the northwest Dunning neighborhood with rows of homes built in the ’50s.
This yellow brick home has a few English-style elements (the pitched roof, asymmetrical gables) but mostly we love the high-end upgrades. The vernacular exterior architecture is preserved, while the interior boasts a completely contemporary rehab.
The five-bedroom, three-bathroom home features new LED-lit landscaping, skylights, custom wainscotting and millwork, and a fully built-out basement. The main floor features a kitchen with a large island that opens through double doors to the property’s new back deck and yard.
There are two bedrooms on the main floor and two on the upper levels. The top floor bedrooms have exposed beams and closets designed to fit the slanted-roof space.
