Shirtwaist home at a dandy price point

The Scarritt Renaissance Neighborhood has quite a bit going for it these days. New administration in the neighborhood association, a seemingly limitless supply of restorable housing stock, and a crime rate that’s trending downward – all strong signals of a neighborhood on the way up. In the heart of Scarritt Renaissance, at 205 S. Monroe, stands this week’s featured listing from Northeast Realty. If you’re in the market for a solid, two-story brick Shirtwaist home at a dandy price point, this may be your ticket!

 The home has been in the same family for the last 60-plus years and that pride of ownership shows in all of the mechanical updates that have been done to the home. Shirtwaist style homes are traditionally three bedrooms and one bath, all located on the second floor. The main level is made up of a front foyer, formal living and dining areas and a modest kitchen with an egress to the back porch and fenced backyard. The kitchen has been updated with newer cabinets and countertops as well as a ’70s style tile floor. There’s a nice little breakfast nook as well that’s neatly appointed with corner cabinets for curios or silver. The living room features the original fireplace and mantle – which is a gorgeous quarter-sawn Golden Oak, fitted with a set of gas logs for the winter months.

 Mechanically, it’s all here. A newer 25-year comp roof covers the entire investment. The electrical and plumbing have both been updated to modern standards, the attic has been fully insulated and there’s a new forced air gas furnace and central air unit to keep the indoor climate nice and comfy year-round.

This home is listed at a very moderate $49,000. That translates into a very affordable monthly mortgage payment and low taxes to boot. Scarritt Renaissance still has a 10-year tax abatement for any improvements, too, an added incentive! Call Bill or Jim Lawless at Northeast realty today if you’d like to get a look at this Shirtwaist on South Monroe. They can be reached at (816) 231-8442.
