Designed by architect Claude Oakland, the “thoughtfully renovated and restored” post-and-beam measures 2,077 square feet and features four bedrooms, two updated baths, and an updated kitchen, along with an original block fireplace, clerestory windows, an atrium, vaulted beamed ceilings, walls of glass, and open floor plan. Asking price is $798,000, and an open house is scheduled for Sunday, March 27 between 2 and 5 p.m.
