It's a real rarity for Curbed to post photos of a home for sale that hasn't been staged (or isn't currently occupied), but when we found 815 Excelsior we had to share it. It's a great starter home in a wonderful and vibrant neighborhood. You see, it's a 3-bed, 2-bath, 1,249-square-foot home for $449,000. It's not a short sale. It's not bank-owned. Sure, the kitchen hasn't been updated since the 80s, but the current homeowners have taken such good care of their property that it's in fine move-in condition. And that tiered backyard? We'd love to spend our spring and summer weekends planting new flowers and trees along the mature lemon trees and existing foliage. While the house technically says it's a 3-bed, 2-bath, there's mention of "an original bedroom on the lower entry level which has a connecting bathroom." We're not sure if that means "unwarranted inlaw." Other property highlights include a deck off one of the bedrooms and a wood burning fireplace.
