511 W Adams St, Creston, IA 50801 $27,900
c.1900 Fixer Upper in Creston, IA
Imagine the wrap-around porch with white turned posts and without that inappropriate lattice. The roof looks good, the stained glass is unique, and the bay alcove with built-ins is lovely. Of course, the lack of kitchen and bath photos is suspect, but for $27,900 we can’t can’t expect those rooms to have updates. The property is just a couple of blocks from downtown Creston, a south Iowa city with about 7,800 residents. The photo below is what Downtown was like when this house was built around 1900. Under that is the same view today. Speaking of views, the view from our featured home may very well contribute to the low price of the home.
