She was built in 1920. We learned the reason there is no fireplace is because at that time it was in vogue to not have one and show that you were chic by using a modern heating system!
I forgot to snap a photo when we got there and it was still light up. It is starting to get dark way too early!
The home is filled with original details!
I was in love!
Must have lace curtains in an old home like this!
The cellar has what appears to have been a room for canned and jarred goods.
A door that looks like it hasn't been opened in years.
A gorgeous radiator.
I just love an old skeleton key!
We visited here the day it went on the market. It was like an open house! There were people coming and going and the listing agent was there. It was nuts.
Being at the price it was, we could afford it and be able to hire contractors to get the work done. It needs updated electrical, blown in insulation, all new windows, refinishing on the wood floors throughout, new ceilings and the walls needed to stripped of old paper and painted, a new kitchen and 1.5 bathrooms.
We do have an offer out on this property as I publish this, but this sort of property gets priced to generate interest so a contractor will come in and pay cash. Cash buyers always win! The lucky winner will give her new life and resell her! However it is exciting to dream about and know there is a slight possibility of us getting it.
House hunting has been stressful. We have put offers in on 5 properties so far with no luck! We keep trying.
Thank you for stopping by! ~Val
