  • Woodland Heights Historic District
  • Bungalow c. 1945
  • 5/3, 3612 sq ft on 6250 sq ft lot

I reviewed this home in 2016 as a “serious fixer-upper”. The 2 front doors are a remnant from its days as a duplex. One of the doors currently provides private access to a bedroom. Duplexes were common in the Heights in the early 20th century as were bedrooms with an exterior door that could be rented.
