    sad thing is about the only thing that house is good for is wood and material salvage or fire dept. training and with that what looks to be an apt. to the left why wast your time as there would be to much noise and drama going on all the time.

    There isn’t a window in the place, the floors are rotten, and it’s full of black mold. Sometimes these community foundations have to know when to say when. Shame on them for trying to sell this, and expect someone to pay no less than $143K on rehabbing it, rather than paying themselves to tear it down.

    Such a beautiful house laid to waste because people were too lazy to at least maintain it. Sad!

  • Madeline

    Looks like a bad neighborhood- someone took all the copper wire out of it. How is the owner to occupy it if it’s a duplex?

  • Bonnie

    What a beautiful house. I see the beauty. I see plenty of good wood floors to refinish and good bones. Look at that architecture. Think of the history. Talk to Nicole Curtis and she’ll show you how it’s done to restore it to its former glory.
