Per the Listing: "Your home should be your peace, your soul, and your personal Shangri-La. It starts with the red tiled roof and shaded courtyard with tinkling fountain and abundant room for a gathering of friends. Self important hipsters can keep walking--this is a place for meditation, truth, good food and great blues guitar. The artist's soul is fed on period details like stenciled beams, vintage bathroom tile and meticulously preserved floors, windows, doors and moldings. Special spots are everywhere--a wine cave, massage room, a covered patio that Hemingway would covet. Modern amenities include copper pipe and newly refurbished central AC."
Sure, some might question the marketing strategy of shooing away "self-important hipsters," seeing how this demographic is widely known to be suckers for vintage details. But the truth is, if a house exudes character and charm—as this one certainly does—the listing copy could be in Pig Latin and it probably wouldn't make much difference one way or the other. Located in the Jewel City's Glenwood neigborhood, the 7,113-square-foot property last sold in 1992 for $310,000.
