SOLD: Stylish duplex home in Hyde Park
This classic 1940s Hyde Park bungalow has been thoughtfully transitioned to a duplex with stylish and modern updates throughout both units of the home. The home exudes charm and character with its colorful orange front door and large patio to enjoy the fenced front yard. Can’t you see yourself waving to the neighbors while the pets play in the front yard?
The duplex format of this home is ideal for extended family or as an income-producing rental. Each home has maximum privacy since they only share a garage wall and one bathroom wall with each other.
The front home (Unit A)
Closely aligned with the original 1940s character of the home, the front unit has an open living and dining room space grounded by solid oak wood floors and bathed in abundant natural light. Located just off the living room, the adjoining kitchen has a serving window that opens to the dining room. Engineered stone countertops are accented with a timeless white subway tile backsplash and crisp white cabinets.
The front home has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. You will appreciate the storage offered by the two spacious walk-in closets in the primary bedroom. Designed in soothing white tones, the en suite bathroom has a vaulted ceiling, walk-in shower, and pedestal sink.
The second bedroom has corner windows that let in beautiful natural light, and storage is provided in the wall closet. The second bathroom has fresh penny tile floors, painted white cabinets, large counter space, and a garden tub for soaking. The linen closet provides ample storage.
The front home includes a contemporary glass door garage with laundry hook-ups and a mini-split air conditioning unit. The tall ceilings and beautiful light allow this space to work not only as a garage, but also as a home office or studio.
The rear home (Unit B)
The rear home is beautifully remodeled with meticulous attention to detail and a focus on using eco-friendly finishes. Vaulted ceilings and corner windows with views of the backyard make for a beautifully sun-drenched living space warmed by wide plank oak floors beneath your feet. This warm modern design continues throughout.
The kitchen opens to the living and dining room for flexible living. Contemporary walnut wood cabinets offer a sleek backdrop to the crisp white tile backsplash, and floating wood shelves are both functional and aesthetically appealing. A wall of floor-to-ceiling walnut cabinets offers additional and discreet storage. Just off the kitchen, the laundry room accommodates a stackable washer and dryer.
The primary bedroom features two closets, including a large walk-in closet with extensive built-in shelves and rods to maximize storage. This bedroom also includes a chic en suite bathroom with floating modern walnut cabinets, designer hexagon cement floors, exposed bulb sconces, and a glassed walk-in shower.
The second bedroom has windows on two walls that give it a rich natural light. The room also includes a wall closet with ample built-in shelves for efficient storage.
The guest bathroom has the same attention to detail as the primary bathroom. This bathroom is “so Domino” with on-trend cement floor tiles in a hexagon pattern, painted cabinets with minimal-style pulls, and a warm wood mirror. The combination shower/tub is accented with white tile offering a stylish contrast to the patterned floors. Large marble countertops complete the smart space. Your guest bathroom has never looked so good!
In addition to the full-size garage provided in the front home, the rear home also has a two-car garage of its own.
The home backs to a wet weather creek, but is not in the flood plain. While the space has been left natural for ease of maintenance, it can easily be manicured to provide a secondary outdoor space. The potential is endless.
The home has several upgrades to enhance your everyday living. It has been wired for ethernet, has a metal roof, and top of the line metal gutters.
You can’t beat Hyde Park’s history and sense of community. Plus, the location is walkable to several popular coffee shops and eateries, and shopping is a short drive away. Enjoy a cup of joe at Flight Path, satisfy your sweet tooth at Quack’s, get some wine and cheese at Antonelli’s Cheese Shop, or indulge in some famous fries at Hyde Park Bar and Grill.
