House of the Day: 1940s College Park birdhouse home wants $334,500


Sponsored by FBC Mortgage, LLCThis pretty little 1940s “birdhouse” home measures in at 1,385 SF and is located at 1320 W. Princeton Street [GMap] in College Park.

The term “birdhouse home” refers to a style of home build where the cupola or dovecote is built as a prominent feature at the front of the home giving them a fairy tale-like quality. Most birdhouse homes come in midcentury ranch layouts so this home was likely a spin or nod to the style as its footprint is a bit more colloquial than is to be expected.

The home features three bedrooms and two bathrooms and features a new roof, electrical panel, and air conditioning unit. The flooring is wood throughout the home and the termite bond is good through 2020.

The living room has a wood-burning fireplace and large bright windows.

The kitchen was recently updated and now boasts wood cabinets, a natural stone countertop, and a skylight.

The yard is full of mature foliage, including plenty of palm trees and an enclosed front porch for reading in the afternoons.

The asking price is $334,500.
