This one: A two-bedroom, 1907 house on Avalon Street that sold this month for $677,000, according to Redfin. That’s quite above the $569,000 asking price back in July when the house hit on the market. Why would anyone pay so far above asking? Maybe the 12,000-square-foot lot provides enough room to build another home? Here’s what the listing says:
Larger that public records indicate, the house offers; spacious common areas, bay windows, hardwood floors, French doors leading to a wrap around deck, back patio, large kitchen with vintage stove and expansive bathroom with claw-foot tub! Character abounds throughout this private and unique property. The back door opens to an oversized patio for entertaining and the opportunity to custom landscape the huge well-maintained lot. Moments to Yogala, Chango Cafe, and Cookbook gourmet market.
The house is on the same block as another 1,100-square-foot bungalow that sold in January for $646,000, a deal that was completed in about two week.
