We purchased this 1.5-story house in 2004. We fell in love with the location, near Lake Calhoun and Uptown. Being nearly 100 years old, the house oozed sometimes-quirky charm, but originally had just one bedroom and one bathroom, both on the second level. Laundry was located in the basement, which made it something of an adventure. Over the years we determined to age-in-place, and had the house remodeled to get everything we needed on the main floor. The remodel was a great success. We were able to leverage an existing three-season porch space to add a bedroom, dining room, three-quarter bathroom and laundry, while creating a more open floor plan that’s proven particularly conducive to visits with the grandchildren.
