William Morris, the most celebrated designer of the Arts and Crafts Movement, once said, “If you want a golden rule that will fit everybody, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” This bungalow in Mount Washington is all about it.
Built in 1931 in the hills of the neighborhood, 4825 Glenalbyn Drive sits above the street surrounded by lush gardens and expansive mountain views. Inside, French doors and large windows fill the open layout with natural light and brings the leafy views of the outdoors in.
Measuring 1,067 square feet the cozy space holds two bedrooms, one bathroom and features an updated kitchen fitted with white oak counters, Japanese ceramic tile, and stainless steel cabinetry. Adjacent to the kitchen and with a separate entrance sits the home office, outfitted with custom cabinetry and blessed with incredible light, while the master bedroom and bathroom are tucked to the rear of the home for privacy.
A wraparound wood deck along with a flat, manicured lawn offers room for grilling, dining, and play all while enjoying views and dappled sunlight filtering through citrus trees.
In addition, there’s a finished two car garage with a skylight and loft area that doubles as a separate, private space for guests, creative projects or an office. Last sold in 2007 for $583,000 the bungalow is listed for $789,000.
