Circa 1900 Whimsical Kentucky House For Sale With Water View $25K – Pending

OHU50K Notes    $25,000 Pending

Sitting high up on a bluff, this circa 1900 house for sale has a fantastic water view of  the Ohio River. I am calling it the Mary Engelbreit house, because the whimsical home reminds me of her artwork.

You may recall another house OHU50K featured just down the road from this one that sold in November 2021 for $8,250. It was in much worse shape than today’s featured house.

If you are wondering about flooding, the flood map below shows that 2nd Street floods but the house appears high enough up that it doesn’t reach the house. Of course, due diligence is required.

 

 

One of the best river views in Maysville. 2 bed, 1 bath. Price reflects need for structural work at entrance of kitchen. Built in 1900, this house has wood floors, gas log fireplace, charming architectural details. Unfinished separate living area below could be finished and rented out. Seller is a licensed real estate agent. Listing

    I don’t know if a train still runs on that train track but if it does it’s *really really* close.

    Really looking w/in 60 mile radius of Cleveland , Tn.!
    But, I am flexible!!! Ty

    Is this house 3BR/2BA? Or 2 BR/1 BA? I saw both in the description. Cute house with nice details for the price.

    I just got connected to a realtor to buy this place, and unfortunately it is already under contract. Not taking back-ups. That went fast!

    I thought I would give update. I looked up this property on zillow, they procured a local realtor, she was so helpful!
    It was still available, I offered full asking price because it sits high above the river with views!
    The realtor returned moments later with someone else already offered full price, I said please counter with 26k, no go, the contract was to be signed at 6pm.
    This morning I asked realtor to please follow up, if not under contract yet, offer 28k. By 10am, contract signed, earnest money of 2k delivered to escrow!
    There are a couple issues. There is a downstairs unfinished, needs work, kitchen doorway has structural water damage, 1 car garage unusable, needs work, roof, etc.
    We close within 2 weeks, no inspections, no refund on deposit, let’s see how it goes… Im excited!

    Extra info. I adore this site and love you guys for providing such a very cool service. I have been perusing it for many months and have seen so many awesome old homes come and go and I finally had some cash free up and took the plunge.
    If its ok, ill provide another couple updates once I’ve gone there b4 closing to appraise repairs and get estimates.
    It could be a 3 bdrm,2 bath duplex or a long term rental upstairs until I figure out what to do downstairs. It has natural gas furnace.
    I really wanted a small town and the river is such a plus, not sure about the train tracks yet- there are 3 sets and noise can travel on water!
    I love “old homes for 50k and less”!
    You guys rock!!!

    Keeping almost all the same, will add a few whimsical touches of my own.
    Too much green in kitchen, will change that.
    May try to make duplex or get downstairs just livable for occasional upgrade visits by me. All depends on what I discover and budget.
    I’m a chimney sweep, so I like quaint, rustic and whimsical!

  • George Bahr

    I’m in Denver, flying to Daytona sat., will figure out how to go inspect just b4 whenever we decide to close and look it over then.
    I’m expecting a ton of downstairs and outside pics over next couple days.
    I love the whimsy! I will have to add a couple garden dwarves and gnomes around, maybe a gargoyle up high, remove paint from wooden mantle, etc.
