With its breeze-catching front porch, rockers, and kitchen garden, this 1939 cottage evokes old-time country living. Sort of. The home was overhauled in 2006. And it’s located across the street from a cluster of about 30 manufactured homes, some of which date back to the sixties. The home’s woodsy lot, which is more than a acre in Shepherd Park Plaza, is just west of N. Shepherd Dr. south of Pinemont Dr.
Listed last week at $349,000, the property lies behind a hefty gate across the driveway. What used to be the garage has been enclosed and repurposed into rooms upstairs and down, so there’s a carport instead — and mention of a workshop. Inside, the 1,353-sq.-ft. house has 4 bedrooms and 2 baths.
The fireplace is for gas logs. Its vintage mirror-capped mantel with wooden columns adds some formality to the living room.
The dining room’s French doors open to the back deck:
The walk-through kitchen has been renovated. Its dimensions are 7-by-22 ft.:
There’s a breakfast area with a door to the back yard:
The master bedroom and bath are downstairs:
Rooms upstairs capture spaces formed by the home’s dormers and have ceilings that follow the roofline.
