Affordable Westside Farmhouse

For this month’s architecture post, ArtDuh visited the affordable west side of Salt Lake City, where urban farming and agriculture is growing like crazy.

We fell in love with a huge (looking) white shingle home. It needs a paint job, but with 3 stories, a quarter-acre yard and a great location, directly across the street from the International Peace Gardens park and skate park, this 1907 home seems like a keeper.

According to Zillow, the home is only 1,480 square feet, but from the outside it looks double that size. It boasts 4 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms. Zillow estimates the monthly cost for a 20-year mortgage for the home at $600, at least half the price the home would be if it were on 900 east instead of 900 west.

I’m a little unsure how to describe the architecture of the property, which just looks like an awesome old farmhouse to me. If you know more about the style of the home, please drop me a note or a comment, I’d love to pick your brains.
