There are tons of lovely homes scattered throughout Norwood, but it’s safe to say Floral Avenue is that city’s most popular street. Case in point: this adorable 109-year-old brick house with green and yellow trim.
Even more remarkable is the fact that this home has only been on the market once before, when the current owner’s grandparents purchased the house from its original owners in 1939, says listing agent Anne Tepe. It’s been in that same family ever since.
Long-term ownership in this case was a plus; that family did a fantastic job keeping the home current, as evidenced by a kitchen, full bath, and laundry room addition they built roughly 10 years ago. The whole project was done “right,” Tepe says, using Marvin windows and concrete board instead of aluminum siding.
Personally, we’re big fans of the leaded glass front door and sidelights, operable first floor pocket doors, and lovely stained-glass accent window on the bay-style wall in the dining room (the master suite above it is pretty nice, too). But maybe our favorite spot of all is that painted wood back porch, overlooking the fenced-in backyard. Almost makes us want to grab a glass of sweet tea and sit a spell.
