Calling hard working folks with a dream of what could be, and investors who can appreciate the profit. Wow, this home has been well loved, and had many improvements when the owners lived here. The property has been rented for a decade, and unfortunately you can see the proof of both the previous love, and the recent lack of attention. if you look at the great stuff you'll see that it does have a lot of fresh paint. The home boasts the fabulous bold molding from yesteryear, and an awesome wood burning fireplace with a brick surround, stamped concrete hearth and wood mantle. Under all of the carpeting there is the original hardwood floors. The kitchen is unusually large for a home of this time, and has a newer hardwood floor, Large format tile backsplash, newer cabinets, and lots of them! The Direct Vent stainless steel oven vent was designed for a commercial grade stove, and does a great job of removing any cooking odors. the extension could be an informal dining space, a sunroom, or a play space for little ones. The exposed stone corner offers character and charm. The full bath on the main floor has a furniture grade vanity with a vessel sink on-top of a granite counter top, and the floor appears to be polished granite.On this main level, you also have a fabulous dining room, and the good sized Family room. Notice the grand chandelier and the ceiling fans on this level! The second floor has 2 nicely sized bedrooms a partially update bath, with tile floor and walls, and a 5 foot vanity with lots of drawyers. The tub is super deep so even a person with big bones, will be able to soak the days stress away. There's another 3 space on this floor, that would make a great office, play room or sitting room. Off - of the back bedroom, there a large space unfinshed room, that is currently used for storage. But this could be a great walk-in closet, or maybe even a full bath.....(I believe it is over the bathroom on the main floor, which could make plumbing not too cumbersome. The third floor has a great finished room, that is the third official bedroom. Many windows are replacement, and there are additional new windows in he storage shed, for a few of the handful of windows that have not been replaced in the house. There are also, some of the old doors, missing shutters and many other treasures stored on the property. The back yard is fenced, You'll notice lots of stamped concrete for the back covered patio, the front and back walkways, and the driveway. This work was done, by a craftsman, who did a magnificent job. There's a back alley, so you have off Street parking, a drive way for about 3 vehicles. the garage is a way oversized 1 car garage that is 17 feet across (today's 2 car garages are often only about 19' across.) It has workbenches and shelving, so it provides a great workshop. Fabulous right? So what's up with the low price.....We priced it according to it's current situation. It needs love. The grand front porch is in disrepair, the back patio roof, needs attention, there is some missing trim work where new windows and doors were installed. Some of the plaster walls could use attention, and the many floors need to be improved. This home is a hopeful mix of sublime, and ...well not so sublime. Come take a look, and if it's right for you as a homeowner, or an investor flipper, this property could be a real gem. The property is being sold "AS IS" with inspection for informational purposes only. No FHA, VA or DSHA loans will be considered. Note: property in the foreclosure process.
