This little phoenix literally rose out of the ashes of an incinerated landfill on a tight urban lot in Linden Hills. We tore down a small house and built another one in its place. At 1,950 square feet, the house echoes the scale and texture of the neighborhood while at the same time injecting new life and animation to the street. Its blend of galvanized metal, ipe and periwinkle lap siding clearly make it the perky new kid on the block!
The house has two bedrooms, two baths and a laundry up, and the main level sports a mudroom, bath, office, stair gallery, kitchen/living/ dining, and a sunroom with built-in seating. You’ll find another 750 square feet of finished space below grade with a half bath, an art room, and a play space as well as an amphitheater exit to the descending yard. And there are decks and porches, fore and aft, for mingling with the neighbors and keeping an eye on the street.
Don’t miss this rarest of little birds modestly fluttering amongst it’s new found friends!
