Here’s a house that is super affordable and is not a short sale. It is on a corner lot with a garage and spacious back yard, although the amount of concrete in the front yard hardens the façade. A small patch of green grass would make it softer. The interior has updates that seem dated now. If you want to bring the property to 2013 and still preserve some of the 1880’s past, you will have your work cut out for you. It is also being listed as a two family home, which considering the corner location probably works out quite well.
Another bit of information to consider about this property is Atlas Industries that soon will be renting out spaces in their building for designers and creative industries. This property is definitely a short walk away for those of you that like the idea of walking or biking to work.
