On a quiet, tree-lined street abutting Malcolm X Park, this house is a great option for anyone who’s tired of yearly rent increases.

The first floor has a bright living room with original hardwood floors that continue into the dining area with a pretty turned staircase and cute corner closet.

Beyond the kitchen is a tiled laundry room, which leads to the decent-size rear patio. Upstairs, instead of squeezing in three bedrooms with one barely big enough for a futon, the seller expanded the front bedroom into a true master suite that includes a dressing area with large closet, exposed brick accent wall and a frosted glass door leading to the private bathroom with black-and-white tile floors and shower with oversized subway tile surround. The rear bedroom is also nicely sized, with a deep closet and three large windows. The hall bath has the same classic black-and-white tile scheme, only with a bathtub.
