Description

*Large price revision reflects the Seller's motivation* Authentic 1920's Craftsman on the exterior, flawlessly paired with 2022 the finishes of a contemporary interior lifestyle. The timeless appeal of this architecture is indiginous to the multi-generational neighborhood of Denver Heights. The covered front porch offers a place to participate in the comings and goings of the neighborhood and the urban hustle. The essential Craftsman elements of gabled roof, waterfall wood siding, large deep covered front porch have been preserved to maintain the character of the neighborhood. The interior has been totally gutted, expanded and contemporized to create a live/work/entertain environment. A newly added private outdoor back living room is large enough to accommodate both dining and lounging in a private space, appointed with recessed lighting, wood ceiling and ceiling fan. The two front guest bedrooms share a full bathroom and are in a separate wing from the newly added main bedroom/bathroom/walk-in closet suite. Since this home sits on the left side of 2 1/2 lots, it provides enormous options for the future development of a secondary dwelling and garage/carport. This is not a renovation or a flip. The home has been thoughtfully designed and rebuilt starting with new foundation piers, a 300 sf addition, new insulation throughout, new roof, new electrical and plumbing, sheetrock, tankless water heater, newly added ducts for HVAC, granite in all bathrooms and quartz in the kitchen, and luxury vinyl flooring throughout. Natural light floods this low maintenance interior, while the extended eaves offer passive cooling for lower electric bills. The oversized lot has been completely enclosed with a 6' wood privacy fence, and even gated the driveway offering complete privacy and security. Unlike many of the URBAN infill properties, at 243 Porter St you are surrounded by "good company". Standing on the front porch, you have both new and well maintained, updated and improved homes, a Community Center, a Middle School, and other new residential projects. Directly across the street is a brand new 4-home project by an LA designer, and next to that is a really cool contemporary with several outbuildings for office and guest quarters. Porter St is a wide and quiet boulevard on the south side of Denver Heights. A short 1 block walk is Denver Heights Community Center and Park which has an indoor gym, tennis courts, playground, and lots of well manicured open areas for picnics and playing outside games. The Community Center building is a historic stone structure which adds a richness to the generational neighborhood. Edgar Allen Poe Middle School is a 1 block walk and adds another layer of well maintained buildings and open space along with neighborhood security. There are local eating establishments very nearby including the very popular Dakota Ice House.
