At 1,500 square feet, this Spanish-style home near Woodlawn Lake isn't going to wow with its size, but we were mightily impressed with just how many cool architectural details were contained inside — and outside — its walls.
The 1927 property's unusual leaded-glass bay window, stone walkway and Saltillo tile front porch all catch they eye from the curb. Then, stepping under the front porch overhang, one notices cedar support beams that lend a rustic appeal.
Inside, the living room features a cove ceiling, meaning the walls slope upward rather than meet at right angles — a popular touch in Art Deco-era homes. There's also a hand-carved fireplace and exposed wood ceilings in the bedrooms to give more fun accents.
According to real estate agent Vicki Collier, the $269,000 property's current owner used a photo of the house taken shortly after its construction as a guide while he did upgrades. Those even included undoing a few exterior mods from previous owners because they weren't in the photo. "He wanted to make sure it all pretty much stayed intact," Collier said.
And we can see why.
