Walk through
Welcome to 1108 Wyatt St., a well-maintained two-bedroom, one-bath cutie of a home located just minutes from downtown and Midtown. Owners enter the 1938-built residence to find original hardwood flooring throughout. The sunny living room is anchored by a brick fireplace, and windows wrap around all living spaces, allowing for natural light to fill the house. Crown molding continues into the dining room just steps away through an arched doorway. Here, French doors offer access to the front side porch with arched brick portico.

The star of the show in the kitchen for period enthusiasts is the working antique Chambers stove. Plenty of cabinet space is available for storage, and countertop prep areas run the length of one wall. New vinyl flooring is underfoot, and the refrigerator is included in the sale, as is a stackable washer and dryer. The kitchen is spacious enough for a breakfast table or island.
