Birmingham, Ala. | $379,900
A 1920 Tudor Revival-style house, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, on a 0.2-acre lot
This house is on one of several blocks that make up an area known as Diaper Row, named for its popularity with young families after similar homes were built in the 1920s and 1930s. It is within walking distance of English Village, a 1920s development with Tudor-esque facades that is home to a number of businesses, including the beloved Continental Bakery, a hardware store and an antiques shop. The Birmingham Botanical Gardens and the Birmingham Zoo are also nearby, and the University of Alabama at Birmingham is a five-minute drive.
Size: 1,485 square feet
Price per square foot: $256
Indoors: A walkway leads from the street to a covered front porch wide enough for a sitting area.
The front door opens into a living room with a decorative brick fireplace and large windows facing the porch. The ceilings, once textured stucco, were smoothed by the sellers as part of a series of updates that included installing a new HVAC system and recessed lighting throughout the house and refinishing the original hardwood floors.
The dining room is through an arched doorway. The kitchen, off the dining room, has new stainless-steel appliances, a center island topped with butcher block, new cabinets and a new tile backsplash.
