A $93,000 Premium Near Kingman Park

The U-shaped kitchen has patterned black-and-white floors, white subway tile walls, and a concealed hood above the oven. The owner's bedroom also has a bay window and nearly a full wall of closets, and the shared full bath has recessed shelves, rectangular marble-tiled walls, and black honeycomb-tiled floors. The house also has an unfinished basement, a fenced-in rear brick patio, and a firewood shed.
