So much to love about this 1,426-square-foot home in the city of Richmond, not least of which is its comparatively demure price tag of $649,000.

Featuring three bedrooms and two bathrooms, 642 39th Street, built in 1931, was revamped by Mary Cronin and Anna Porter of The Design Shop, who used the home’s vintage details in the renovation. The hardwood flooring and crown molding are still here, blended in with an updated kitchen and bathrooms (all three bearing new tile work, ranging from colorful and eclectic to white subway tile).

A new indigo barn doors now cleverly cover the washer and dryer units, and new landscaping can be found in the front and read yards. A detached, standalone garage sits in the backyard, which could double as a studio for those who eschew personal car ownership.

The listing is through Karen Moss of Compass.

Update: And just like that, the home is now pending.
