Newly Listed: Lovely Fishtown Starter Home With Surprising Exposed Brick

The listing says this very sweet house has “an exciting floor plan” that packs in “a variety of surprises.” And that’s no lie: There’s an unexpected length of uneven, exposed brick next to the dining table; pressed concrete floors; a vintage stove; and a “tree-house room.”

But who needs surprises when the rest of the house is so lovely? The period details are knockouts from the first step inside the vestibule, with turquoise and white wall tiles. The hardwood floors are random-width and the wooden stairs, doorframes, indoor window, fireplace and built-ins have a distinctly Mission feel.

Upstairs, there’s more beautiful wood, including in the couple-friendly bathroom, with a white subway tile shower with a dual shower head, two sinks and a claw-foot tub.
