The history

The sellers, who have architecture and design experience, bought the property in 2003. The home was nearly a century old and it had an unusual layout, so in 2013 they completely modernized the interior. They rented a nearby condo for seven months while the renovations were completed.

There’s a living and dining area at the front of the house:

The fate

The buyers are a family of four who were attracted to the size and design of the home as well as well as its proximity to green space and walking trails, for their dog. Their offer was the only one.

The sale

After listing the home at nearly $3,900,000, the sellers dropped the price by more than $300,000. The agents paired modern social media techniques with an old-fashioned approach to marketing: door knocking and cold calls.
