Kauffman Street is a tiny, shaded lane that only exists for a few blocks in Queen Village. The street is narrow and tree-lined, which makes it a perfect hideaway in such an otherwise bustling neighborhood. This particular home fits in beautifully on the street as it appears to have been engineered precisely for that kind of respite.
The three-bedroom home features a garden entrance and a two-story living room. Windows there let in plenty of light from Kauffman and the sliding doors at the back of the first floor let in additional sunshine. The kitchen is outfitted with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The third floor features a master suite with vaulted ceilings and an en-suite bath.
The third floor also features the entrance to the roofdeck, which is currently serving as a delightful outdoor living space. The home has a secondary outdoor space on the ground level, where there is just enough grass to walk in barefoot but not enough to warrant a real lawnmower (which is perfect, as far as we’re concerned).
