Better Shelter certainly seems to be filling a niche on the eastside of town, with modest sized bungalows re-done with a modern, Dwell-esque aesthetic. They're already had success with a Mt. Angelus flip (final sale price: $430,000) and a Silver Lake cottage (final sale price was a healthy $550,000 - way above the list price of $399,000). Now there's another Better Shelter-designed house on the market - this time in Atwater, and it's already looking for backup offers after only 7 days. The "compound" as they call it, has two-bedrooms, two-bath, "a victory garden, outdoor office space, and an indoor extra guest bedroom." The listing notes the house was "created for the client who wants an indoor/outdoor flow with amenities walking distance away." Last sold in March of this year for $248,000, today's asking price is $499,000.
