Ready to ride? Or perhaps wave at the fit folks passing by? The wraparound porch and upper balcony of a newly constructed home overlook the Heights Hike and Bike Trail. Listed a week ago at $948,000, the property tempers its somewhat public side with a more private porch in back.
The foyer rises 24 ft. and incorporates reclaimed wood and beadboard wainscoting. An accent wall of knotty shiplap tops the landing way, way up the staircase; it grants a brief pause on a quarter turn 15 steps up (above). Meanwhile, down the hallway, there’s a living room full of built-ins . . .

Bedroom or study? This first floor room also gets a porch door and lands near the 2-car garage found on the 4,324-sq. ft. lot’s north side, facing 12th St.
Details in the dining room at the front of the 3,120-sq.-ft. home include a coffered ceiling, which frames air-conditioning vents and recessed lighting. (The bike trail right-of-way is across the street — on view from the table. Love Park, meanwhile, is around the corner.)
Glass-fronted cabinetry makes the most of the home’s 12-ft. ceiling height and multi-use island:
The master bedroom suite is on the second floor:
A balcony, facing west, is off the bedroom:
An interior hallway to the master bathroom passes a pair of closets fitted with glass panel doors:
The home’s 2 other secondary bedrooms are camera shy, but a full bathroom on the first floor makes an appearance:
The corner lot has low-rise wrought iron fencing — and columns — like its neighbors:
It’s a busy weekend ahead for the property, which has 2 open houses scheduled.
