Poke along Polk St. in the Woodleigh area of “Greater Eastwood” to find this vintage brick bungalow. Since it’s next to an auto repair service, the home acts as a bookend shoring up one end of a mostly residential block. A convenience store caps the other end; a shopping center is in the next block.
The listing’s location close to Cullen Blvd. means both current and future public transportation options. Metro buses, for example, stop nearby and Polk St. itself has a bike lane. Meanwhile, Metro Rail has 3 stations pending in the area, though each might turn out to be a bit of a hike from the home. It’s about three quarters of a mile to the future Green Line’s York and Lockwood/Eastwood stations. The Purple Line’s Leeland/Third Ward stop is going up just over a half-mile away.
The house boasts classic features of 1929 domicile design: porches, wooden trim, interior archways. Listed earlier this month at $124,900, the property is offered “as is.” Here’s what — at least as the photos show it — that means:
Double French doors in the living room lead to a study. The single French door opens to the master bedroom:
Beyond the arched doors lies the dining room:
A breakfast room off the kitchen also connects to the dining room:
In the kitchen, cabinets have exposed hinges and upper cabinets have glass fronts:
The 1,505-sq-ft. home has 2 bedrooms. In the master bedroom, a double window looks out onto a sun porch.
Floor tiles in the lone bath are bordered by a Greek key motif:
Recently replaced equipment in the home includes the electrical box and air conditioning condenser. Its decked attic has blown-in insulation. The water heater is about 5 years old and the roof was replaced a decade ago. There’s no garage, but you can throw yard stuff into the storage shed out back:
