This Wilmore house is cozy cottage in the front, and modern beauty in the back. It’s listed at $750K.

Situational awareness: We wrote about this house back in 2019 when it sold for $590K. It’s now asking $750K — that’s a 27% increase in two years.

  • The house was built 1945, and according to the oldest available MLS records, it sold in 1970 for $9,500 (!!!).
  • In 2016, it sold for $190,000.
  • If the house sells for $750K this year, its value will have increased by nearly 295% in five years.

The exact address is 1825 Merriman Ave. At 2,481 square feet, it has 4 beds and 2 baths.

Design: The front half of the house fits in with the historic Wilmore streetscape. But the house was completely renovated and expanded by Australian architect Maria Gigney and Height Design + Build a few years ago.

The back half features an ultra modern, two-story boxy addition with floor-to-ceiling windows. And the interior has concrete floors, oak wood floors and an open kitchen with contrasting cabinets and a black waterfall island.

  • The owner’s retreat has a custom walk-in closet and an office nook. The bathroom includes a frameless shower with black honeycomb tile and a floating live edge vanity.

Other highlights: Modern light fixtures, minimalist design (that doesn’t feel too cold), an open layout, fenced-in yard, expansive back patio.
