715 Edith SE
$239,000
MLS #601152

715 Edith SE is located in The Lewis and Simonds Addition platted in 1881 on either side of Santa Fe Street . This neighborhood continued to develop through the 1920's. Primarily a working class neighborhood the residents were often employed by the railroad shops and iron foundry located within walking distance at Pacific and Commercial. By the 1930's the decline of the railroad industry led to both economic and population decline within the neighborhood. Many of the business left tended to be auto-related with repair shops and salvage yards scattered throughout the area.

A neighborhood rich with cultural diversity, South Broadway has seen a resurgence over the last few years with more and more homes being rehabbed through the efforts of many of the homeowners already residing in the neighborhood.

715 Edith SE is typical of the size and style of the homes built for the families living in the area in the 1920's. While restoring the exterior of the home to reflect the original style with wood siding, a white picket fence, and a large open front porch, the interior has been updated to a more light and open contemporary look. With new bamboo floors, 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, the common areas are spacious and flow into each other effortlessly. The electrical and plumbing systems as well as the roof are all new.
