Over in West University, one of the updated brick bungalows in the Rice Court neighborhood makes a few good points — in its windows, archways, and a section of living room ceiling vaulted into the sharply pitched roofline. The 2008-renovated 1934 property has been on the market since an August listing aimed at $799K; it dropped its price a month ago to $765K. Two-and-a-bit years ago, the current owner picked it up for $551K.
As renovated, the original 2-bedroom, 1-bath home now has master bedrooms both on the first level and in space under the eaves reached by a staircase thrust into the living room (above). A second bathroom has been fitted upstairs as well. One of the room’s pointed pass-throughs leads to the enclosed-porch sunroom facing south toward the street, located one lot in from Buffalo Speedway and a block north of University Blvd.
Another cased opening frames the dining room. Its glass panel doors . . .
open to a brick-lined side patio:
The kitchen, meanwhile, shares the back of the 1,551-sq.-ft. home with the adjacent family room, which appears to have once been a bedroom:
The floor plan’s remaining downstairs has access to the sunroom:
Its bathroom is a ramped-up and shared one in the hallway:
Skylights illuminate the upstairs suite. Many of its features are built in, such as the nightstands and storage flush with the kneewalls:
Ditto the shelving in the suite’s “study” that overlooks the staircase:
This 5,250-sq.-ft. lot is a smidge larger than the more prevalent 50-ft.-by-100-ft. lots found in many sections of West U.
