It’s not every day you see a home on Benkard Avenue being sold or converted back to a 1-family property. These rowhomes work better as single-family properties which makes this one exciting. Not to mention the original details that remain: the porch, double front doors, the mantle etc.
Work still remains to be done, most likely the bathrooms and kitchen. It is being marketed as having all the restoration heavy lifting done, “historic plaster walls are refinished, floors are carefully resurfaced, the yard is tidy and ready to enjoy, and the basement is clean. Now you get to do the fun part: choosing the finishing fixtures and designing a home you love.”

Beautiful reno but good luck with those taxes, if it sells for anywhere close to that price, total taxes will be 3x what is specified. All for the benefit of living on … Benkard Avenue.
