On a hilly street not far from the impressive collection of transplanted Victorians known as the Heritage Square Museum, this four-bedroom Craftsman and its cute porch await.
Built in 1910, the approximately 2,200-square-foot house has no rear neighbors and lovely views of the arroyo and the hills of Mt. Washington and Cypress Park.
Once inside, there are only a few reminders beyond dining room’s built-in cabinets that the house is more than 100 years old.
The kitchen has been thoroughly updated with a sea green tile backsplash and wood countertops. The three bathrooms have also been overhauled and now feature large sinks and modern tile.
A balcony off the master bedroom overlooks the terraced backyard.
It’s listed for $850,000. If that price seems a little high, it’s because, according Redfin, in the past month, the median list price for homes in Debs Park-adjacent Montecito Heights was $649,000. The median sale price was slightly lower, at $645,000. Five homes have sold in the Heritage Square-adjacent neighborhood in the last month.
Co-listing agent Eva Berges says inventory in Montecito Heights is low, so she and partner Tracy Do looked to adjacent neighborhoods to set the list price. Avenue 39 looks like a bargain, she said, compared to a 1,300-square-foot home in Glassell Park “that just closed for $915,000.”
