I know Farrington is a rough block, however, I thought this house is worth of a look for those of you that might favor a more cottage-vibe in a house. Looking at the interior photos the house needs to be gutted but there are still some original details that look to be salvageable. The house is in foreclosure, and the price is cheap if there are no major structural issues. I love the varied architecture in this part of the city. There are a lot of Second Empire homes with mansard roofs and many homes with this gingerbread detailing. If you are up to it, you could probably even make the vacant lot next door into a community garden.
