What a bathroom.
But wait, there’s more! Wouldn’t you love to prepare your next dinner… here?
Or lying down for a refreshing night’s sleep… here?
Or… um… well okay I’m not really sure what you’d do in this room, even if it weren’t covered in filth.
All this for only $300,000! What a steal!
Sheeeesh… Only 2 bedrooms, only *1* bath, not quite 1400 sq ft, *and* built in 1914… for $300K??? I’m thinking someone had to have tacked on an extra zero by mistake, ’cause this is way more like a $30,000 house if you ask me.
Yup, it’s a housekeeping nightmare at the moment, but that’s easily fixable. And under all that junk the kitchen and bathroom cabinetry is really nice. Looks like maple, possibly even solid wood. (Hmm… I suppose that alone could explain the current price tag.) The downstairs rooms are a bit small, but a remodel of the living/kitchen/dining areas (which look like they’re laid out in that order) would open up the space a lot and likely increase efficiency as well. The upstairs bedroom has a bunch of neat angles going on, too. Hell, I even like the bathroom colors and patterns. Looks like recent retro additions, but still complementary to one another (even though Mr. Curtain Rod seems to have gone on a bender).
The back storage area, aka enclosed sunless room, really needs help. If the framework could be kept and reworked, sides open and with a new sort of overhead cover, it might be a nice little space.
But again… who’s crazy ass idea was it to price this at $300K?!
I suspect this property has appreciated mightily because of location while some folks who are now done with it aged in place.
