This c.1900 concrete block handyman special is situated on a corner lot in a low-crime neighborhood. The front porch overlooks the large yard of a house on a hill and mountains can be seen beyond.

I love the double front doors that open into a spacious foyer with hardwood floors and lovely staircase. Original doors and trim, built-ins and mantels also grace the home. The kitchen needs updating but is serviceable.

City of But NE is actually the city of Butler (pop. 13,757), about 35 miles north of Pittsburgh. It ranked 7th for best small town in America by Smithsonian magazine in May 2012.

Opportunity knocks! This grand Victorian style handyman special home is just waiting for a visionary to come along and return it to all its splendor. As you make your way through the double doors and into the foyer, the charm of yesteryear will make your imagination run wild. The high ceilings carry throughout into the living room and formal dining room.

The kitchen needs some updating, but there is great potential to have the kitchen of your dreams! Upstairs you will find three large bedrooms and a full bath on the second floor. The third floor has two additional rooms that can be used for a multitude of purposes.
