A pretty bungalow in Revere that is less than a 10-minute walk to the beach and about seven minutes from Wonderland Station has hit the market for $394,900. 

The two-bedroom, one-bathroom home at 72 Calumet St. is perfect for buyers looking to downsize, young professionals starting to build their real estate portfolios, or people hoping to find an affordable single-family home, said United Brokers agent Kevin Ochoa. 

Ochoa described the home as a “condo alternative,” a single-family property that won’t break the bank.

“In this market, so many people have been discouraged to the point where they’re not even considering a single-family anymore, and they’ve narrowed their search to the point where they only think they can afford a condominium,” Ochoa said. “Sometimes my clients need that reminder that there are single-families that are affordable out there.”

The sunny yellow front door of the 904-square-foot home opens into a sleek living room with hardwood flooring and a wood accent wall. The space is part of an open layout, with a half wall delineating the living room from the eat-in kitchen.

A granite-topped peninsula separates the dining area from the kitchen, which comes with stainless-steel appliances, wood cabinetry reddish in color, open shelving, and two ceiling fans. 

Both bedrooms have hardwood floors and custom closet setups. Bonus: The owners outfitted all of the electrical outlets with USB ports, Ochoa said, creating a myriad of places to charge phones, tablets, or other devices.

In the bathroom, tiles with swipes of gray line the walls of the tub/shower combination. The bath also offers a single vanity.

The recently painted basement comes with a washer and dryer and plenty of storage space.

Outside, the home offers a deck and a fenced-in backyard. If you’re looking to have guests, parking should not be an issue — the side lot can fit up to six cars parked in tandem.

The flood insurance premium for the property is roughly $1,200 a year, according to the listing.
