Per the Listing: “New from design+build firm ReInhabit: a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with guest unit tucked into a woodsy corner of trendy Highland Park. Artfully restored from the ground up it has high ceilings, exposed wood beams, oak floors and a custom-built kitchen with concrete countertops and tile backsplash. Original built-ins line the hallways and there are many one-of-a-kind elements including lighting fixtures made from salvaged materials. Upgraded systems include roof, HVAC and a re-stuccoed exterior. Downstairs bonus guest unit features a bedroom, bath and kitchen with its own HVAC zone. There’s a huge storage room and oversized 1-car garage with direct access to the home. Outside is a rear patio plus an observation deck, a cool perch to relax or dine while taking in sweeping treetop views. Kitchen Mouse, My Taco, Good Girl Dinette, Pop Physique – the very best of Highland Park is right up the street, a surprise given this quiet and verdant setting.”
Score another hit for ReInhabit—as illustrated by its previous listing photos, this property was a depressing, stucco-sheathed horrorshow before the flip firm got its hands on it six months ago (for $ 375,000) and gave it their trademark industrial light and magic treatment. The reincarnated residence seems likely to sell quickly, if the throngs who showed up to its Saturday open house despite the rain are any indication.
