Located in the Bouldin Neighborhood, one block off bustling South Congress, Eva Street House is a new urban infill home for empty nesters. Eager to embrace their surroundings, the owners wanted a home with a graciously scaled front porch and street-facing windows to project a welcoming presence on their pedestrian-friendly street. Indicative of the early 20th century era homes that fill the neighborhood, Eva Street House is a four-square plan with a central stair and second story tucked under its wide triangular roof. A new garage apartment occupies the back of the lot. Between the main house and garage apartment, a private screened porch and outdoor terrace compliment the community, embracing the front yard and porch. Interiors, although crisp and current, remain consistent with the scale of older neighboring homes. A cozy kitchen, living, and dining area maintain a view of the street and are warmed by a wood-burning stove. On the second floor, a den occupies a north-facing dormer with a view of downtown. Eva Street House is quietly modern, modestly scaled, and integral to its old neighborhood context.
