Would you believe that, according to public records, this polished Franklin-Hills-adjacent residence, just around the corner from John Marshall High School, was listed as a fixer in October 2013 for $949,000? (It sold for $1.045 million in less than a month.) Unfortunately, the old listing doesn't have a lot of photos, so we are left to merely imagine what the house looked like before its "redesign" by decorator Joshua Cain (who's mentioned in the brokerbabble and has a bio on the house's listing site). Back on the market with two bedrooms and three-quarters of a bathroom more than it had just four months ago, the house has also added Viking appliances, custom cabinets, "historically inspired shower systems" in every bathroom, crown molding, refinished wood floors, and all new plumbing (probably important for a house built in 1927). It kind of warrants the $900,000 price kick. The house is now asking $1.949 million.
