what's old is new
For anyone in the market for a home that blends 1920s charm with 21st century convenience, 1007 Gardner St. is a dream come true. The home was revamped top to bottom, keeping the bungalow's early 20th-century aesthetic while making way for all the things modern homeowners expect, from open floor plans to killer kitchens.
Located in the Historic Preservation District of North Norhill, this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath offered by John Daugherty Realtors is available for $679,000.
Enter through the lovely blue front door into a home that easily straddles the 20-21st-century divide. Bamboo flooring throughout the space offers a contemporary vibe, which never overpowers the classic touches like the white brick fireplace or the original wooden window frames.
The airy, open floor plan provides for seamless integration between the living room, open kitchen and dining room. Meanwhile, the pocket study provides a quiet space for work that still feels part of the heart of this charming home.
The kitchen showcases Jenn Air appliances, as well as updated touches like a quartzite island with a built-in wine fridge, marble backsplashes and bar stool seating. A space that's at one fully functional and a cozy gathering spot makes this ideal for those who love chatting as they create the cuisine for intimate dinner parties.
Thanks for a 500-square-foot addition, 1007 West Gardner St. now has a master suite with a gorgeous marble master bath, with an antique claw-foot tub that echoes the home's past. Double vanities in both the master bath and the secondary bathroom provide ample primping space.
Barn doors on sliders accent the closets and bathroom entries. And refurbished hinges and doorknobs from the original home have been preserved, offering another antique touch in this newly modernized space.
In addition, the bungalow boasts new electric and new plumbing systems. The home sits on a 5,000-square-foot lot, offering incredible backyard space and a lovely front yard.
This is the kind of charming home that lovers of history and those desiring a space that feels both cozy and open will be dazzled by. Its convenient location to I-45 and the Heights and Northside communities mean this is the sort of home that puts its owners in the center of everything. Anyone looking for echoes of the past who craves the small luxuries of the present will fall in love with this home.
