c.1914 Fixer Upper Foursquare in Waterloo, IA Under $40K ~ Sold


What gorgeous woodwork in this fixer upper foursquare? Coffered ceilings, amazing built-ins, plate rails, fireplaces, stunning staircase, leaded glass window, cast iron radiators…the list goes on. The floor-to-ceiling cupboard is very similar to the one in my own foursquare. Mine is not original to the house, though. My husband rescued it from a Jersey Shore tear-down belonging to the uncle of a friend of his. To make it easier to give direction where to find things to my seven kids, we named our built-ins and pieces of pieces. So when one yelled, “I can’t find the cheese slicer,” I could direct them to the left drawer in Uncle Al’s. Do any of you do the same thing?


Fixer upper. Great opportunity here! There is newer siding on this huge two story home. The home also features a huge 3 Car garage! There is work to do on this one but with sweat equity this gem will shine!

    We like that kitchen . We’d get rid of the jacuzzi, dishwasher, replaced windows, panelling & chipboard shed and deck.
    Period paint colors and inside & out would work wonders.
