This home was purchased in 2021, taken to the studs, and renovated in 2022, adding 642 sq ft. The sellers converted the sunroom back into a front porch. They also changed the gables from jerkinhead (clipped) gables to the triangular gables you see here. Historic regulations allow an owner to restore the home to its original conformation, and most likely, this home was a classic Craftsman with a front porch. Fortunately, they were able to retain a small backyard area.

NOW UNDER CONTRACT…

The following properties are now under contract, but that doesn’t mean they will stay that way. It is not uncommon for homes to fall out of contract during the option period for any number of reasons, including inability to negotiate repairs and, commonly, buyer’s remorse.

If the status is listed as Pending Continue to Show, this may mean that the sale is contingent on the sale of another house, or for some reason, the listing agent feels that this deal may need a backup contract, just in case.

The website highlights each of the vendors at the market, one I noted has been operating at the market for 59 years!
