Vintage home on wooded lot offers the illusion of seclusion
Not since the apex of their popularity in the 1960s have A-frame houses been more popular than they are today. Social media is overflowing with instagrammable A-Frames adorned with old fashioned string lights, but if you’re ready to live out your rustic cottage fantasy without leaving the city, this may be your chance.
This 1,237 SF house was built in 1966, with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath and listed at $249K The lot is 8,102 SF and nicely wooded on a dead-end street. There is a duplex just out of frame in the photos that is actually quite close to the property line but the design of A-Frame houses (no windows on the side) and the nice trees in front and back of the house serve to create the illusion of seclusion.
This place obviously needs some work, there are notable signs of deferred maintenance inside and out along with some questionable paint choices and some other… oddities (who doesn’t like doing their laundry while frying an egg?) but this could be a pretty neat place for the person that wants the cabin in the woods aesthetic.
Despite being just a few hundred feet from Tudor Road and the U-Med district and AMC it’s also very close to the Campbell Creek Trail and access to Far North Bicentennial Park.
There also appears to be a carport/shed structure on the Northside of the driveway.
