Midwood Park Standalone With Wood-Burning Fireplace, Parking Asks $1.495 Million
With a bright red door, a windowed porch, and a clapboard and half-timbered front gable, this early 20th century single-family home has the Arts and Crafts-style home at 1643 Glenwood Road is also the work of renowned architects Slee & Bryson, who designed around 30 houses in the district.
Built by developer ER Strong Co., the home has seen a few changes since it was first constructed in 1912 on the Midwood Park project, but has retained most of its exterior details and a whole host of original features inside. The historical tax photo shows the veranda before it was filled in with today’s windows later in the 20th century, but the addition has not changed the historical character significantly.
The character extends inside with parquet floors, moldings and an original staircase. There is an Arts and Crafts style brick fireplace in the living room along with a window seat, windows on three exposures, and a toothed crown molding that is more colonial style. The bar continues into a study with windows, while the dining room has painted beams on the ceiling and a stained glass window.

A wooden deck is accessible from the kitchen and there is a bit of lawn in the back as well as on the side of the house. At the front, a curb cut and a paved area up to the front door provide for parking.
