Does a smashing new splashscape — along with a dash of fresh interior paint — at a Woodland Heights home that had been renovated just a few years earlier merit this kind of price jump? An extensive overhaul completed in 2010 to a 1920 structure along a wiggle of Merrill St. in the Hermosa Court section of the neighborhood brought a $750K buyer to the property in 2012. Last week, the re-re-tweaked vintage property reappeared on the market, this time asking $997,500.

The porch, however, is out front, looking north across the Woodland Heights niche neighborhood, located 2 blocks southeast of the intersection of Reagan St. and Pecore. Travis Elementary School is a couple blocks to the east.
