Some homes just shine with the effort their current owners put into them. One such house is 10145 Eastwood Dr. in the Lake and Gardens District, near Garland and Peavy roads.
The charming rambler is listed with McKenzie Schimming at Nathan Grace Real Estate for $254,900, and its price reflects everything from the newly laid sod and freshly planted flowers out front to the well-staged, clutter-free interior.
The 1,496-square-foot home, originally built in 1953, was totally gutted in fall 2015. Updates include a new HVAC system, water heater, plumbing, both bathrooms, refinished floors, and recessed lights.
This home offers two living rooms; a dining area; and a square kitchen with marble countertops, updated cabinetry, new appliances, and room for a table.
The large master has space for a home office or sitting area, as well as an ensuite bath and walk-in closet. A second bedroom is large, and the second bath plays off its unique aqua tub with matching accents.
Through French doors off the dining room you'll find a lovely flagstone courtyard with landscaping and window boxes. There’s also a two-car garage.
At $170 per square foot, this house is priced higher than the nine other neighborhood comps. But the ambitious pricing and extreme makeover seem to have paid off — it already has a pending sale.
