Going Green: 8701 Washington

February 18, 2013 , In: Residential Properties , With: No Comments


If you like to look through local real estate listings, you may notice a subtle change soon. We realtors were recently notified that the primary photo that runs in the MLS must now be the main exterior shot. So if a home has some awesome feature inside, buyers will have to look through all the additional photos to discover it.

Take this 1952 ranch in U. City. It has nice curb appeal and a great Mid-County location, so I’m sure it’ll get plenty of attention. But there will also be a lot of buyers who just skim right by, never aware that this is inside…


WOW, huh?! I’ve seen some very cool vintage bathrooms in my day, but this jade-colored masterpiece is definitely near the top of the list!

The half bath in this house is pretty swell too…


And for those of you who like your bathrooms vintage but appreciate some nice modern updates elsewhere, may I present this gorgeous open living area…


And a kitchen/sunroom combo that looks straight out of a magazine…


Seriously, if you’re hunting for a mid-century house with character that also works well for modern living, check this place out. It’s perched up on a hill, on a corner lot measuring .38 acres, and it comes with a nicely finished walk-out basement and a two-car garage.

8701 Washington has 3 bedrooms & 2 baths in 1878 square feet. It was just listed today by Ted Wight, Dielmann Sotheby’s, for $298,000.

If you’d like a buyer’s agent to show you this unique vintage home, which is walking distance to Jilly’s Cupcake Bar and Flaco’s Cocina, give me a call!
