For Sale: The Inventorialist’s House

In Little Flower, a favorite antiquer’s home hits the market with loads of charm.

Feeling sad you couldn’t hit up the recently closed Inventorialist on Small Business Saturday? Us, too. Here’s the silver lining: The Inventorialist himself, Kristofer Bowman, who recently shuttered his Cottage Home antiques shop to return to his native Minnesota, is selling his 2BR/1BA in the east side’s Little Flower neighborhood, and the house is as impeccably curated as the store.

At just 962 square feet on the main level, the house, located just north of Irvington, packs a lot of goodness into its story-and-a-half floorplan. The home’s two bedrooms sit on the first floor, while up a flight of funky stairs, a finished attic space functions as a large master. The main floor also features a sunny living room with wood-burning fireplace. Hardwoods run throughout, and as an added bonus, the bath has a reclaimed-plank-wood wall.

At his store, Bowman always stocked a selection of interesting houseplants, and this generous corner lot reflects his green thumb, too. Tucked inside a modern, horizontal privacy fence, the backyard is a gardener’s paradise with raised planting beds, a potting shed with a green roof, and a koi pond.

Take a look at all the listing photos above. It’s hard to find this much character for a neighborhood-comparable $84,900 $79,900.
