Eastside Property: Atwater cottage returns to market with bolder colors and price tag

648-square-foot Atwater Village house returns to market/Redfin

Same home last May/The Eastsider

This 648-square foot Atwater Village cottage got a lot of attention in May when it hit the market at $395,000, with dozens of agents, home buyers and looky-loos packing into the place on the day after it was listed.   The charming but worn-out little house on the 3400 block of Ferncroft Road sold in less than a month for $410,000, according  to Redfin. Now, the same home – after being totally redone, inside and out – is back on the market for $565,000.

The once white-and gray-clapboard exterior is now  painted a bold shade of dark brown and and beige.  The front door now features a large panel of glass with a bright red trim – a favorite among flipper investors.  The listing plays up the property as a “perfect starter home, condo alternative:

A great location, restaurants, shops are in walking distance yet sitting on quiet neighborhood, No need to worry about monthly HOA, some annoying neighbors from upstairs, Have some peace of mind, Beautifully staged, come and see before it is gone.

Since the real estate market has shown signs of cooling off since the frenzy of the spring and early summer, it will be interesting to see if this home sells as quickly as it did a few months ago.
