Pumped up by new construction and extensive renovations, this expanded 1920 Eastwood home debuted on the market late last year. The red-crested property lingers still — as does the asking price of $449,990, which is quite a bit more than the $80,000 it went for in June 2012.
The overhaul more than doubled the home’s size to 3,000 sq. ft., and the listing pegs the results as more than 90 percent new. Windows beneath a raised and reworked roofline upstairs and a bunch of dormers appear to have added some higher-level living space (above), all linked to a 2-story addition at the back of the home. Out in front, meanwhile, a no-longer-enclosed porch (shown in the second photo from the top) has been reworked to catch the breeze between brick-bottomed wood columns. More brick finishes out much of the front-of-home’s pier-and-beam foundation and new fencing sets the lot off from its street, east of S. Lockwood.
The front door, located perpendicular to the street, opens straight into the living-dining-kitchen area, which runs along one side of the first floor:
In the kitchen, skinny-chef spacing accommodates a cooking area and a passage to rooms in the added space beyond:
Midway through the all-in-one main room, there’s a core of access points to a twist-turn staircase, one of the home’s 3 bathrooms, and a few bedrooms:
Before the renovations, the home had a pair of 12-ft.-by-12-ft. bedrooms and a single bathroom. Now it has 4 bedrooms, but they each measure 10 ft. by 10 ft., according to the listing. No peeks into those spaces are included among the the photos, though; they focus instead on the updated bathrooms (above, at left, and below):
The new upstairs has wooden floors. The front-of-house portion contains this game room with built-in bar and a skyline view of downtown:
The 5,000-sq.-ft. lot has a bit of back lawn off the new deck. There’s no garage. Fencing includes an automatic gate across the driveway, which fronts a street on a Metro bus line.
Renovations included a radiant barrier, hybrid water heater, and solar attic fans.
