It’s no secret that I really like the idea of living in Beaver. Maybe not as much as Brian does, but it really would be a great place to call home, especially for a local writer covering all of the great businesses along Third Street!
It seems like every time I’m driving through Beaver, all I have to do is turn off of Third Street in pretty much any direction and I can stumble onto a great house for sale within a few blocks. As luck would have it, on my most recent little excursion I found myself in front of a house that happens to be listed by our friend Amy Logan from ReMax!
720 Bank Street in Beaver offers a unique combination of modern and vintage features that most other houses simply cannot match. It is clear here that the owners took great care in planning out their improvement projects in a way that preserved some of the great vintage features of this house.

The Updated Features
When you first pull up outside of 720 Bank Street, you are met with the curb appeal of a modern house. The dark tan siding creates a perfect backdrop that really makes the white trim and porch railing pop. This is exactly the look my wife envisions for our own, similar looking, house in Monaca.
Keeping with the theme of picking and choosing which features of the home should be updated and which should be left original, the kitchen features what appears to be a brand new countertop and sink. There is also an awesome ceramic tile floor in one of the bathrooms.
The Vintage Features
If you love vintage features in old homes, 720 Bank Street has plenty to offer. Like many homes of this era, there is the classic fake fireplace in the living room. In this home, there is also a great built-in bookshelf next to the fireplace. My grandmother’s house had one of those, so my sister would absolutely love that feature.
The owners have also chosen to leave a built-in curio cabinet in the dining room, as well as the vintage wood cabinets in the kitchen. Combining the vintage feel of those cabinets with the modern look of the new countertop in the kitchen and refinished hardwood floor in the dining room creates a unique blend that would give this home’s new owners plenty of options to work with.
The Added Bonus
While the house itself is great, one of the biggest selling points has to be the detached two-car garage located behind the house. Anyone used to living in downtown Beaver or Monaca will surely appreciate what a great benefit it is to have a garage.
If you have a little one, they will also be thrilled to find an awesome custom-built playhouse in the back yard! I’m talking to you, Corey Allinder!
The Beaver Lifestyle
Of course, like I say about every house I cover in Beaver, the appeal of living in Beaver is less about the specific house and more about the amenities that surround you.
This particular house is located only two blocks from River Road. There is a park right down the road and the library is close by as well. As I have said before, having the option to walk down to Starbucks or Cafe Kolache for work and then to Mario’s or Biba for dinner is the ideal routine for me.
This house is not going to be for everyone. Some will find the updated features to be too modern, others will find the vintage features to be too vintage. However, if you are looking for that unique hybrid of modern and vintage, 720 Bank Street is a perfect place to start!
