    They did a good job with this reversioning — it’s a cute little place. I’d hesitate to buy because there doesn’t seem to be a shower, but it’s darn cute.

    I see what looks like a showerhead in the basement, but that doesn’t bother me nearly as much as the fact that it used to be a gas station and was then a used car lot. Even though the seller claims the underground storage tanks were removed, gas stations are notorious for being situated on environmentally contaminated land due to UST leakage, and fluid leaks and other runoff from cars.

    This one is a hard pass for me.
