On the Market (Again): 4207 Saint Paul Street

This house, 4207 St. Paul Street, was sold in April of 2022 for $523,000 and then it sold again in May for $651,000. Now it's back on the market again for an astonishing $1,585,000, a 143% increase. 

Clearly, it's been flipped. I can't find the earlier listings for the house, but you can tell that a lot of the work on this house is newly finished, because it's so trendy.

ALL of the interiors of the windows have been painted black (ugh), the original dining room has been combined into the kitchen which, oddly, is just off the front door,
a former study may now be the dining room and the living room opens to what looks like a new patio. 

However, it looks like the flipper respected many of the original details of the house. All of the bathrooms look like they've been re-done and of course, the kitchen is new as well. 

But the house is done in shades of black, white and grey, and looks very monotonous. The house has clearly been staged for sale, and the black and white furnishings don't do anything to enhance it. 

And worst of all, they've added tacky sliding barn doors in the bedroom. JUST SAY NO TO BARN DOORS IN BEDROOMS ANYWHERE EXCEPT FOR BARNS.

This is one of Palmer & Lamdin's less interesting house, just a simple center hall, brick Colonial. None of their interesting touches, no combined brick and stonework, no fascinating details.
