626 Tennyson Place, Toledo, OH 43620
Okay, wake me because I must be dreaming! This circa 1911 Foursquare in Historic Old West End Toledo, Ohio, is listing at under $5,000. It’s on the end of a cul-de-sac on a street of lovely, well-kept older homes. Get a load of those fabulous French doors, the grand staircase, original woodwork, hardwood floors, cast iron radiators and the alcove in the kitchen. Some of those kitchen cupboards look original to the house. If it were me, I’d mainly clean and paint the room and install new countertops. Call me crazy, but I love old kitchens. The second floor sunroom and living room columns are spectacular, too.
Apparently, Toledo has a special program for wonderful old houses that need restoration. The realtor outlines it here. “Historic Old West End. Truly a diamond in the rough, with incredible French doors, natural wood work, library, bright kitchen, look beyond the repairs to see the old craftsmanship in this home. Buyer must have proof of funds for renovation and purchase plus complete all Land Bank documents for offer to be considered.”
