A very intriguing 5-bedroom, 4.5-bath home in Spruce Hill has hit the market to the tune of $1,325,000, making it the most expensive property for sale in the neighborhood.
Here’s what makes it so unusual: First, it’s an extra-wide, double twin with Victorian details and a wrap-around porch that dates back to 1870. But inside, it’s been completely remodeled, with contemporary finishes, a spiral staircase, and what we like to consider the cherry on top, an indoor bridge.
The bridge, in turns out, connects the master bedroom to a loft space, which by the looks of it was part of an addition to the home at some point.
The 4,858 square-foot home is a twin, so the second half of the property has an in-law suite and a studio efficiency apartment. That means there’s potential to rent that part out to help with that price tag, or convert it back into a single-family home.
Like we said: Intriguing, especially considering the fact that Spruce Hill is expected to have a pretty hot real estate market this year.
