Her deed hasn’t been signed in 40 years,

We proudly present her following a month of nip/tuck amendments performed by our trades,

Bidding starts at 240,000!

She’s a terrific equity-builder, the boldness of her millwork and ease of which the kitchen can be opened to the great rooms is certain to delivery what all bungalows do: subtlety from the curb that quickly shocks the viewer upon entry.

@designinrareform carefully curated the potential: open concept kitchen and bath for her incoming owners of record. Plans are available for those that wish to reach the greatest heights from their interiors.

The Craftsman Bungalow at the onset of the Arts & Crafts movement.  The Sears bungalow essentially created Rare Form, following a tireless revival of our 1922 version, it became crystal clear that craft delicacies needed a voice in Mpls.  The Prowess of a sprawling footprint, constructed to house the family on the ground level without modern additions of attic or basement extensions.

This early example from the era offers wide plank WHITE OAK hardwoods freshly restored by our trades in matte waterborne poly. 

Her built-in count is opulent; 7 leaded glass cabinets on the main divide the spaces and fill it with entertainment utility

the bedrooms jack/Jill around her bath and hall is dressed with a stately built-in linen chest. 

she commissioned RFP to perform a tune of her space prior to market:

  • carpeting and tile were demolished, as early era heritage grain white oak (a rarity in the area & superb to red oak) presented proudly throughout the commons.

  • bedroom wing flooring was demo’d revealing exotic striped maple, finely sanded and finished in matte waterborne along with her sister oak.

  • Overhead light boxes were plaster filled and discovered under mortar, our lighting purveyors delivered on a marquee-esc Empire State deco fixture.

  • A repaint of the commons was completed by Imhoff paint co.
