This Hyde Park home serves up some serious Fixer Upper vibes. This traditional bungalow was renovated front to back with some of the same elements Chip and Joanna Gaines would use. Think neutral tones, crisp whites, and extra perks like a sweet back deck with a built-in hot tub. Not to mention, the location of this contemporary farmhouse-style home is on a highly sought-after Hyde Park street right off the Wasson Way Trail. “This home was designed with entertaining in mind,” says listing agent Jay Owens. “The most unique room in this home is the kitchen. It has custom floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, custom-designed open shelves, and a large island in the center of the room so everyone can feel connected when hosting family and friends.”
The front of the home channels California vibes with an all-white facade, black-trimmed windows, glass-panel front door, and a wooden garage door giving a pop of neutral color. Stairs lead up to a sidewalk that takes you around back or to the porch, which features a pendant light and brick flooring. Immediately inside, the living room is up front. The focal point is a massive glass fireplace with an inlaid spot above to hang your flat screen.
A light hardwood was laid throughout the first floor. Between the kitchen and living room, there’s a bay-windowed alcove with enough space to set up a round dining table. Across the room is a half bath. The high ceilings on the first floor make the whole space wide open. The kitchen boasts open shelving, an eat-in island with a cooktop and decorative pendants above, and an accent tile wall behind the double oven—each giving a unique look to the space. Other amenities like two-tone cabinets, stainless appliances, and wine shelving make the kitchen an entertainer’s dream. Off the kitchen is an extension of the first floor, a covered back deck with a fireplace similar to one in the living room, with space to hang a TV, ceiling fan, overhead lighting, and a hot tub. The entire yard is also closed in with a horizontal-plank fence and gated side yard.
The first-floor master suite features a walk-in closet with custom shelving that leads into the master bath. If you are a spa junkie, you will dig this bathroom, which features marble-like tile, a rustic double vanity with a set of LED-illuminated mirrors, and a large glass-enclosed shower. The rest of the bedrooms are on the second floor, but the basement entertainment space is one of the coolest parts of the home. There’s a wet bar with a drink fridge and loads of storage space that mimics the kitchen style, as well as a wide-open area with hardwood floors that’s perfect for gaming tables or another sitting area. Also downstairs is the prettiest laundry room you ever did see—featuring many more storage cabinets and fancy tile that will make doing laundry a little more glamorous. What more could a family need?
