Here’s a two-bedroom in a charming Spanish Colonial-style fourplex next to Fairfax High School, a prime location for getting the first pick at the Melrose flea market every Sunday. Constructed in 1928, the building is peppered with period flourishes, including tile, wrought-iron railings, and stately wood doors.
The unit that’s on the market measures 1,347 square feet and holds two bathrooms, plus a “home office nook,” dining room, and in-unit washer and dryer.
Replete with Gothic arches and wall nooks, it has also been modernized with a contemporary kitchen and bathrooms, recessed lighting, and engineered wood floors. The living room opens to a long and narrow wood balcony, and there’s a shared community garden and patio.
It’s listed for $950,000, with HOA dues of $225 per month. The building is a tenancy in common.
