In honor of Earth Day, April 22nd, I will be featuring some old houses under $22,000 this weekend. Saving a house from the wrecking ball and landfill is a great way to save the Earth and our architectural heritage. This circa 1900 Victorian has great bones. Exterior gingerbread is still intact, and it sits on street of older homes with nice yards and mature landscaping. The front foyer is simply amazing with that stunning L-shaped staircase, vertical wainscoting and original closet door and trim! It has three pleasant bedrooms with big windows to let the warmth of the sun shine through, and the cabinets in the kitchen appear to be original. Of course, as you can see by the photos, this vintage gem needs a new roof and a paint job. Imagine the gingerbread and dragon skin shingles in Painted Lady colors! What a beauty!
