This three-bedroom home in East English Village is an intriguing alternative to the many flipped houses on the market in this price range.

The big picture: Flipped homes look modern and clean, but it can be hard to tell how well the renovations will hold up against everyday living.

What they're saying: "This house has been cared for," Lambrecht says. It has "the most impressive breakfast nook you've ever been in."

State of play: East English Village is known for its historic character, active community groups, proximity to I-94 and east-side shops and restaurants.

The 1,858-square-foot house has three bedrooms, 1.5 baths, a detached garage and a new HVAC system and furnace.

  • It features hardwood floors, custom woodwork and a cathedral ceiling over the breakfast nook.
