Another Pretty Old House in Kirkwood

Well, we’re at it again.

The latest renovation/flip is on the same street at the first Kirkwood Flip.

Unfortunately, its already been renovated once, so there’s not much old character left.  The hardwood floors are mostly original and there are a few plaster walls.  Thankfully, the fireplace is intact.

The old side porch was finished for an office/sitting room.  The French doors leading to a side deck are from that 1980’s renovation…

so are the columns that separate the living and dining rooms.  And the big brass chandy.  The front door is original—love that arched door.

The old front room was turned into a den with stairs to a bedroom and bath…

and a (drum roll here) wet bar. Hubba Hubba.

The kitchen is spacious…

with big windows…

and a nice breakfast room with a bay window.

There’s a mudroom/laundry—very nice.

The master bedroom is already set up for a new bath.

The hall bath is adequate and the typical size for an old house.

Upstairs is a little odd with this “bonus” room at the top of the stairs open to the den below.

The upstairs bath is cramped with only a fiberglass shower unit—yuck.

The bedroom is big—sorta– with a dormer that leads to a deck.

The yard is nice and flat with a big oak tree.

and the requisite cracked patio.  The owner told us there was another really big tree where you see what’s left of the stump.  They cracked the patio when they were hauling out its trunk after is fell.  yikes!

Here’s the yard.

It’s hard to see, but this house is a Tudor, not a craftsman bungalow.  It was built in the 1930’s probably by the same company who built the first Kirkwood house.

Stay tuned for the fun.

Later,
