1928 Dutch Colonial - Winston Salem; NC

4 Beds; 3 1/2 Baths; 2900 Sq.Ft.
707 Oaklawn Ave, Winston Salem NC 27104
.36 Acres
Built: 1928

Realtor Blurb:
Updated & wonderful Buena Vista 1928 home. Classic features with fresh touches. Gracious living room and dining room. Efficient kitchen with ample storage & workspace. Den/Breakfast room opens to the living area and courtyard. Cozy sunroom from the living room. Glorious Master suite addition in 2001, vaulted ceiling, spacious bath & separate office nook. Upper level with 3 bedrooms and 2 fully updated baths. Detached garage was rebuilt in 2001 w/additional storage space above or potential expansion.

My Notes: I did not include garage in sq.ft. above.
My parents raised me in a house very similar to this. Absolutely love it; wish there was more acreage. In my opinion; modernized kitchens and bathrooms such as seen here tend to flow much better in houses built in the Craftsman and forward styles (1905+); you can 'get away with' using modern fixtures without too much visual incongruity. However; if one is a sticker for authenticity; there are a few issues here that might be too much to deal with. YMMV, of course.
