Union Park Gardens Home for Sale

By
Real Estate Agent with Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate

This is the little row house that could...impress you, charm you, look out on historic South Bancroft Parkway, be within walking distance of restaurants and pubs, and provide you with 3 bedrooms, a bath, dining room, and an office or playroom in the basement. The floors, as was common at the time, are the more expensive oak on the first floor, and pine on the second floor.

Front of  442 S. Bancroft Pky.Living room with oak floors

These 1918 built homes were originally built for shipyard workers (see my blog on this neighborhood at http://carolynrolandsblog.com/ ) during WWI, and then auctioned off to private owners in 1933. There is parkland, winding streets, varied home designs and sizes, both detached and row houses, with the flavor of an English Village, as indeed, they were inspired by the English Garden Suburb movement.
