House of the Week: Stunningly Creative 7BR

This bold home elevates Broad and Tasker to a New level.

This property in Point Breeze aka Newbold is actually two: 1410 and 1412 Tasker, just off Broad Street. The entry is through 1410, leading to an open floor plan of 1410 and 1412. Let’s take this floor by floor. I’m relying heavily on the listings copy here to reduce any confusion.

On the first floor, there’s a brand new double height kitchen with stainless steel appliances, six-burner Thermador stove, granite countertops, and a double porcelain sink. The downstairs bathroom is sweet: claw foot bathtub and glass tile walls inside, with glass doors that lead to an outside private garden with a hot tub. The living room has wood burning fireplace, and, as in the kitchen and bathroom, painted concrete floors with radiant heat.

The second floor is where 1410 and 1412 kind of split. So in 1410 there’s a reading nook with a catwalk (!), a den with painted pine floors and then access to a decked area that links 1410 to 1412, which has another bedroom with pine floors but also with a Bay window. And this side of the second floor — 1412 — also has a renovated bathroom with a hex tile floor with radiant heat.




The middle and front bedrooms have pine floors, while the front bedroom has oak floors and a stairway that leads to the master bedroom on the third floor. That one has exposed brick and built-ins, as well as French doors leading to a full bathroom with another claw foot tub, a marble-topped sink, tile walls, and again, radiant heat floors. I mean, this is a house where your feet will never get cold. The master bath also has access to the deck that has a stairway to the roof.

If all that weren't enough, other perks include a four zone indoor/outdoor stereo system and an automatic plant-watering system.
