This right-sized West Powelton home has been thoughtfully renovated with the perfect combination of upgrades and clever custom charm. The current owners have created a flexible living space, dividing the home into two distinct living areas, each with its own unique touches. There is also the potential to easily reconnect them to create a large home that has a brand-new roof and heater and is central air-ready. Enter into the rear unit through the bright mudroom with reclaimed pine cabinet and shelving, which opens into the kitchen with butcher block countertops, dual-basin corner sink, subway tile backsplash and custom-built open shelving in addition to cabinet storage. There’s also a cute passthrough to the living room that can act as a breakfast bar. The cool blue color scheme perfectly complements the white oak floors, giving the whole first floor an open, airy, almost beachy vibe. At the top of the stairs is a good-sized rear bedroom with original glass-panel door and red oak floors that continue throughout the second floor. The retro-cool bathroom has a clawfoot tub, subway tile wall surround with built-in storage nooks, and vanity with large ceramic vessel sink. The bright master bedroom has two good-sized closets, both with beautiful stained glass panels. This unit has access to the basement with laundry and lots of room for storage. The front unit, whose entrance is through a covered vestibule, is a total artist’s pad. The open living area features floor-to-ceiling windows, original crown molding, custom Venetian plaster walls, a pretty marble mantel and a galley kitchen with butcher block counters and crisp white cabinetry. The three bedrooms on this side are all big enough to be true bedrooms but also make great studios, with their painted black wood floors on the second floor, recycled pallet wood floors on the third, some exposed beams and lots of natural light—and one room even has a sink. The second-floor hall bath features another clawfoot tub, classic black-and-white hex tile floors, and a vanity crafted from an upcycled dresser. The front and rear yards are both large enough to satisfy any green thumb; all the soil is an organic mushroom compost blend and the front yard has fruit-producing fig and quince trees. This home is convenient to Green Line Cafe, Lemongrass Thai restaurant, Aloosh hookah bar, the 10 trolley and the rest of the Lancaster Ave strip as well as Saunders Park, the 40th St El, and area hospitals and universities.
