Major House Crush: 113 N. Bread St APT 10A

Sometimes I come across a home that makes my heart go pitter-patter, but isn’t quite a fit for the CENTERfold. For everything else, there’s Major House Crush. My current MHC is a little bite of Bohemian heaven on Bread Street. It’s a fantastic 2/2 corner loft penthouse located in the always-desirable National.

When you hear or read that a home needs “some updates,” what do you picture? I’m a fairly reasonable person, and imagine a place that has some outdated wallpaper, or maybe a bit of yucky carpet.
