c. 1905 Handyman Special in Red Oak, IA $48K – Gorgeous Woodwork
Located on a corner lot, this c.1905 fixer upper boasts a lovely wrap-around porch, gorgeous staircase, beautiful built-ins, hardwood floors, and so much more. Sadly, many of the homes built around this time lost family members in World War II. In fact, Red Oak is noted for a disproportionate number of casualties in both WWII and the American Civil War.
This grand 4-bedroom, 2-bath home is ready to see its glory again. There is a wrap around porch with gingerbread cutouts, a 2 story garage and shed with workshop. The home will be a nice project and very comfortable to live in while making repairs. The home is being sold in AS IS condition.
The home has oak hardwood floors, very ornate open staircase, pocket doors, a front parlor with oak colonnades and a built-in buffet with lead glass window above in dining room.
The second floor features all 4-bedrooms and a sun porch.
The owner has done many upgrades putting in new electrical breaker box, new bath with laundry on main floor, hot water heater, new roof, new furnace, A/C with 2 zones and had property treated for termites.
