210 W 4th St., Metropolis, IL 62960
A charming Illinois house under $15,000? Yep! This potential beauty was built in 1867, has this three-bedrooms, two-baths and sits on 1/3 acre. Note the great front porch and beautiful entrance with hardwood floors and stunning staircase. I think I spy a leaded glass window at the base of the stairs, too. There have been some shoddy patchwork repairs, but many of the original details are still intact, including beautiful interior doors and trim, bay window, French doors and gorgeous fireplace mantel. I love the second floor landing, but the piece de resistance is the black and white tiled bathroom! And get a load of that detached garage. I’m thinking that with a little elbow grease, it might be a small apartment. It’s such a bargain, I’m thinking there must be something major going on with it, so, as with all homes (especially fixer uppers), make sure you get a home inspection.
As per the realtor: “Grand old home that needs some TLC to make it the once fine home that it was. Hardwood floors, original woodwork, Parlor room with fireplace. Buyer pays all closing costs.”
