Brisk Sale for Vibrant House With Lemon-Yellow Kitchen

Vibrant—it's a word we've discussed here before. It's also a word that was used by the listing agent to describe this fantastic home on Fifth and George, an area with charming old housing stock, leafy trees and narrow side streets.

Built in 1912, this three-bedroom house has an appealingly historic facade and all the period details you could want inside: gorgeous hardwood floors; pocket doors; elaborately carved wood built-ins and mantel; claw-foot tub; and more.

But look at that kitchen! Talk about vibrant—bright yellow is as lively as it gets. Even the rug in there is making a statement about velocity. No surprise, then, that the home sold speedily—in less than three months—albeit significantly below the asking price.

Size: 3 beds, 3 baths, 2,476 square feet
Extras: Rear yard with "dining patio"; walk-in dressing room/closet
On the market for: Less than three months
Last sold for: $520,000 in 2007
