This charming Craftsman Bungalow in historic Washington Park has it all—INCLUDING an adjacent 1 acre lot! Lovingly restored over a 7 year period by the 2nd & current owners, this home has gotten a “magazine worthy” make over. All of the mechanicals, roof, & cosmetics have been carefully updated with the utmost attention to original details. Original porte cochere & large front porch. Screened porch overlooks flat back yard with whimsical landscaping!
Cross-gabled frame bungalow with hipped-roof porch extending to create porte-cochere, all supported by shingled square tapered posts on brick piers; shingled entablature drops to V shape at posts creating an angled arch at each bay. This is the largest building on Konnoak View Drive and the only one with a second story. This house is said to have moved here when the new street opened and was the first house on the street. At that time (ca. 1919) the front rooms, porch, and other Craftsman features were added. The rear (NW) retains early German-type siding. Roma and Emma Renigar lived here when he was a harness maker, salesman and foreman for Townsend Buggy Company, predecessor to Pleasants Hardware. They later started Renigar Grocery, Renigar Hardware Company, and Renigar Shoe Repair.
