115 Spring Grove Ave, Bluefield, WV 24701
The state of this circa 1920 brick beauty saddened me. It’s located in a very pretty area of large, gorgeous estates, and this grand lady is crying out for a family to love it once again. In February of 2013, the almost 4,000-square-foot home was put up for sale at $200,000. It’s been on and off the market since then, having now been reduced to under $40,000. I read an article two days ago saying that there’s a mass exodus from West Virginia. That, and the condition the empty house has fallen into over the past four years, probably contributed to the drastic reduction in price. But just look at that yard and the grand entrance from the street! The wide front porch with a view, the front door with sidelights and the cove shingles all say that this diamond in the rough was once owned by a prominent family.
The high ceilings and hardwood floors have water damage, windows are broken and it most likely needs a new roof, but consider the original doors and trim, front and rear staircases and spacious kitchen. You know how I love original kitchens, and this one, while I’m not keen on the hardware, has loads of old cupboards.
Although Google Maps doesn’t go down Spring Grove Avenue, you can tell by the nearest cross street that the area is lovely. Also, Zillow’s arial view gives you a good idea of the wonderful homes in the neighborhood.
