There are the real estate shoppers whose ideal property is a classic bungalow with wood siding, hardwood floors and a front porch. Then there are the buyers whose Dwell magazine-fantasies lead them hunting for lofts with open spaces, exposed ceilings, concrete floor, etc. Both housing types seem mutually exclusive but this Silver Lake property at the corner of Bellevue Avenue and London Street might satisfy a buyer who appreciate both styles.
The property is actually composed of two small buildings, a former corner commercial building (pictured above) that has been converted into a space any loft-dweller would admire and a one-bedroom cottage. Here, according to Redfin, are the details of this bungalow-loft deal:
The loft features concrete floors, designer kitchen, modern cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, modern bathroom, rain shower, ductless AC & Heat, tankless water heater, new copper plumbing, complete insulation, electrical, and an aluminum frosted glass-garage door that opens up to a beautiful composite deck serving as an outside seating area for a small restaurant or cafe. The one bedroom bungalow features a raised roof, original hardwood floors sanded and buffed to bring out its original charm.
How much will it cost you to live in the past and present? The property, which sold for $357,000 at the end of last year, is now priced at $729,000.
