On a block with mostly brick homes, this Arts and Crafts dark cedar home stands out. I would agree with the listing that says this house is located in “the midst of one of the most architecturally significant sections of Liberty St”. There is a lot of diversity here with many styles represented. Unfortunately there are no interior photos so we can’t see the “original features remain waiting to be restored”. The price is low, and the house is being sold as-is, so be prepared for major renovations. The house next door has been wonderfully renovated if you want a glimpse of who your neighbors might be. They also own a cool letterpress studio on Broadway. I’m sure they’d be happy to see a preservation minded owner move in. They also have some nice parties across the street.
