101 E Church Ave., Masontown, PA 15461
When you get past what looks like an exploded estate sale, this stately brick house under $50,000 has some great original features. Built in 1871, take a look at the stone foundation, wrap-around porch, bay window, woodwork under the eaves and those tall chimneys, not to mention that fabulous stained glass window! The interior features beautiful trim and doors, transoms, built-ins, amazing fireplace mantels on each end of the living room, double staircase and butler’s pantry. Of course, the dropped ceilings have to go, and I’m betting there’s hardwood flooring under the hideous carpeting. (I’m eying that 1950’s kitchen table, too). This is a huge project, but what a grand home it could be!
As per the realtor: “The grandeur of yesterday is apparent in this 4BR, 1 bath brick beauty with wrap-around porch, generously sized rooms, and lg kitchen with butler’s pantry and stairwell. Lg. stained glass window on stair landing is visible from entry/living area which is flanked by fireplaces on each end. The gigantic attic could be an amazing living space. Some updating would bring this home back to its original luster. Being sold AS IS. Seller will make no repairs.”
