A home in East Kensington that features 100-year-old exposed beams, refinished pine floors, and other lovely wood finishes has hit the market for $314,900.

The three-bedroom, one-bath property at 2023 E. Firth Street has been complete transformed into a cabin-like home since it last sold in 2009. It all starts in the vestibule, which now features penny tile floors, followed by refinished pine floors throughout the rest of the house.

One of the home’s showstoppers is the ceiling in the dining area on the first floor. Here, century-old timbers have been exposed and are matched with a new mosaic wood pattern. The wood detailing continues in the kitchen, where 4x4’s line the walls and a slate tiles serve as a backsplash.

Out back, there’s a big backyard. Although much of it is paved, there’s a small area dedicated to garden space.

Check out the home’s total transformation with these before-after images below.
