House of the week: Riverbend “beach cottage” style double

I’ve been watching this house while it’s been renovated over the past couple of years. It’s only a few blocks away from where I live now in the Riverbend area and every time I walk my dog, I can’t help but gawk at homes in my ‘hood I’d love to own. While this particular model is way out of my price range, it certainly is a beauty I’d love to own nonetheless.

Going for $299,000, this cute double on Dublin Street has been renovated to the point of looking nothing like the houses in the surrounding neighborhood. With Miami-bright colors and glassed-in front porches, this house has all that I could ask for and more with hardwood floors, gorgeous windows and fully updated kitchens with granite counter tops and recessed lighting.

Each unit has about 1200 square feet of living space with 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths per side. The listing states that one side is currently being rented for $1,450…yikes!

The biggest plus to this particular property is that I’d be able to remain in the Riverbend, a gorgeous neighborhood that I absolutely adore. Unfortunately, I’d never be able to afford this house…well, at least not until I win the Publisher’s Clearing House Sweepstakes that is sure to happen any day now!
