In 2014, the home at 554 44th Avenue was purchased in a foreclosure sale for $600,000. Back then it was a two-bedroom, one-bathroom home that measured 1,120 feet. What a difference two years make. Today, it entered the market as a very modern, three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath, three-story home. No square footage is listed, but it's obviously larger. And, at $1.799 million, it's obviously more expensive too—and there's a reason for that.
Looking at the outside, it's pretty easy to see the outline of the home that once stood here, as the lines are unmistakably Victorian. However, the date of the original construction is omitted from the listing.
Inside, there is no trace of the past, as the home is unabashedly modern and minimalist. The interior walls on the main living level have been erased and the walls have been painted gallery white.
The lower level, probably the garage level in a past life, has been reimagined as living space with two bedrooms, a full bathroom, a laundry room, and an office.
The upper level, which was likely an attic not that long ago, is now a large master bedroom with access to a large (and pretty amazing) roof deck.
