When renovated by a previous owner in 2007, a 1936 Craftsman-like home in Eastwood modernized but also played up period details. A subtle color wash in pastel shades (above) adds to the pastoral mojo, though house and driveway sit behind an iron fence at the front lot line. Earlier this week, the property popped up on the market with a $345,000 asking price. Its location is 3 lots north of S. Lockwood Dr. and 3 blocks from the Eastwood/Lockwood stop on Metro’s coming East End line.
The listing mentions new electrical and plumbing work completed under permit. In the living and dining rooms, mere hints of color provide contrast to the gleaming white trim and millwork. The fireplace and pair of stained-glass windows flanking it are original to the home. Meanwhile, the family room goes dark all over — or tries as well as it can to, despite the plethora of windows at the back of the floor plan:
The frothy finish resumes in the kitchen:
The master bedroom’s French doors open to a small deck, possibly the one slightly recessed from the main porch at the front of the 2,503-sq.-ft. home (and pictured at the top of this story):

Subway tiles are mentioned in the description of the remodeled bathroom, but they aren’t shown (above). Or maybe they’re in the (not pictured) bathroom of the upstairs garage apartment?
The garage apartment, reached by a sturdy staircase with top deck entry (above), offers all-in-one living with a nook for the kitchen:
