Renovated Central District cottage set up for indoor/outdoor living
Built in 1940, the former brick cottage at 820 26th Ave. has been transformed into a modern urban refuge. The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home is just blocks from downtown, and even closer to Central District gems like the Twilight Exit, Central Cafe & Juice Bar and Cafe Selam, among other spots. Full of light, the home is refined and understated with an emphasis on indoor-outdoor living.
The home’s 2,284-square-foot floor plan has been renovated in recent years–including new cabinets, upgraded fixtures and modern black-frame windows. Through the front door, you step onto cool, clean concrete floors that reflect the natural light. The heart of the home is nearby—the kitchen. The chef-worthy setup features stainless steel appliances, an eat-in kitchen island and oodles of light-wood cabinetry. A few steps away, the 14-foot accordion door opens onto a private southern courtyard and the rest of the low-maintenance backyard.
Three bedrooms are located upstairs, including the master ensuite. The primary bedroom offers relaxing views of some of the property’s 50 planted trees, while the adjoining bathroom features a double sink and a modern, white vanity. Elsewhere, there’s an informal family room on the home’s first floor, plus a full bedroom, bathroom and stacked washer/dryer.
