Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover, Unless it’s Beige

The attached home at 1507 31st Avenue looks no different from its neighborhood
counterparts, but its stunning interior remodel shows such attention to detail
that this home stands out from the rest.


Recessed lighting and modern earth-toned paint offer a modern look and feel.
The parquet wood floors in the living and dining rooms (and standard wood
plank throughout the remainder of the home) are in beautiful condition. The
original brick fireplace is framed by two arched wall alcoves, a design that
you don’t often see in sunset homes.

The kitchen is small but sufficient, and updated like the rest of the home.
The cabinets are a dark wood, offering an odd contrast to the medium maple
color of the floors. The bathrooms have all been updated, complete with beige
colored tiles and countertops. Come to think of it, you had better like the
color “beige” if you plan on purchasing this home.

The back yard, while small, is well landscaped, and would make a good tricycle
track. While this five bedroom, four and ½ bath home has a wonderful layout
and has made good use of the space, its asking price of $1,330,000 seems a bit
high, considering there are other similarly remodeled homes selling for less.
Check it out for yourself, though. It will be open this weekend, April 15th
from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
