This charcoal gray Ft. Thomas bungalow is concrete proof that a house doesn’t have to be huge to be big on charm. Case in point: original features inside and out, including a columned front porch, bay and leaded glass windows, stained four-panel wood doors throughout, and a carved wood fireplace with glazed tile inset in the living room (plus matching tiled artwork above that). What’s great about this house is how nicely those features play with updates, such as a fully remodeled kitchen (complete with gas oven, stainless steel appliances, and a painted brick backsplash behind the sink), a mini mudroom by the back door, and beautifully updated bathrooms throughout.
The best spot in this three-bedroom, two-bath house is the master suite, which includes a window seat surrounded by plenty of built-on storage, a bookcase that doubles as the door to a secret closet, and an oval-shaped window in the shower—small enough to maintain privacy but big enough to let in natural light. Unfortunately, this home was already sale pending at press time, but it’s a fantastic example of what just under $400,000 can buy in Ft. Thomas—one of our favorite Northern Kentucky neighborhoods that comes complete with its own Norman Rockwell kind of vibe.
