That should read further east.

Here is how that area works.

Houses between Federal to Lowell are not great.

Houses between Lowell and Raleigh are hit and miss. And the area is not gentrifying as fast as other neighborhoods are.

Houses between Raleigh and Sheridan are good.

None of that area is great, but it has hit bottom and is starting to rebound.

My parents moved out of the neighborhood about 10 years ago, but they just moved to Lakewood Estates. I still drive through the area often as one of their favorite restaurants is on Federal.

Besides the bad kitchen, I also find that weird front fence that goes into the window annoying. I realize they were trying to create a larger "private" area but it just looks wrong. It's a nice house but why did they paint all of the woodwork white, including the ceiling beam? Wood was a major element in MCM houses but people buy them and then slather white paint on everything. All of the window frames, doors, and beams should be natural or stained wood.
